David Stanley Smith was born on Jan. 2, 1944, in Taft, California, to Stanley and Margaret Smith. He lived briefly in Colorado and later Casper before moving to Buffalo when he was in the fourth grade. He finished his schooling in Buffalo and graduated from Johnson County High School with the class of 1962. After high school he attended Sheridan College and later transferred to the University of Wyoming. During his university days he was a drummer in various rock and country bands. He took a job with the Laramie Fire Department where he worked for 26 years. He was married on July 15, 1995, in Laramie to Brucie Connell and they made their home in Laramie. After David retired from the fire department they moved to Buffalo where they continued living until his death.

David loved music and spent countless hours converting his vast vinyl record collection to digital form. He also was an avid animal lover who regarded his dogs and many cats as part of his family.



Chesbro lived at St. Francis Animal Shelter from 2013 until he passed away in 2018. Chesbro liked everyone. Each morning he would run to his kennel because he was so excited to get his morning canned food. He was a blessing who brought joy to us all!



was a very good boy. He was adopted from St. Francis in 2008 as a senior pet. Stanley had the gentlest soul and taught his family what it was to truly fall in love with a dog. He will be forever missed. 5/2012
