It is with a sad heart that we inform you that Charles “Pat” Smith died on Saturday, February 6, 2021, due to complications from COVID-19. His wife, Carolyn who also contracted COVID-19 has been recovering slowly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carolyn for a full recovery and we extend our condolences to her on the loss of Pat.

Pat and Carolyn attended our last reunion and it was enjoyable spending time with them. Pat was a fun-loving guy who was a great friend and classmate. He was a kind and caring person who was always ready to lend a helping hand.

Rest in peace good friend.

Charles “Pat” Smith, 78 of Center Township, passed away on Saturday, February 6, 2021, in Heritage Valley, Beaver.

Born on Monday, September 21, 1942, he was the son of the late George and Mildred (Schmidt), Smith.   He was a 1961 graduate of Beaver Falls High School and was employed with St. Joe Lead and later with Nova Chemical where he retired. Pat played slow-pitch softball for many years after graduation and he worked at Rolling Acres Golf Course following his retirement in 1998.  Pat loved his family, cats, golf, and baseball.

I am so sorry to read this. Pat reached out to us from the hospital. He seemed to be looking for connection and support. I wish we could have provided more. My sympathy to his family.

The loss of our classmate Pat is truly heartbreaking.  He was my classmate from early primary school days in Chippewa through graduation from BFHS.  He was such a NICE person, kind and a lot of fun.  His wife Carolyn needs all of our support at this time as she too is trying to recuperate from COVID as well.  It is a horrible virus taking so many lives.  We will truly miss him.

I am so sad to see the news that Pat has passed away. When I moved to Chippewa he was one of the first high school friends I met. I believe I asked him to one of. Those girls ask boys formals He was and continued to be such a kind person. We will miss him at our next reunion. My prayers are with the family

Chippewa produced good people like Pat. Comfort and peace to his family who surely misses him as do we.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of another one of my classmates especially because of covid. I have lost several friends because of the virus. I have had my first shot, and I get the second one March 2nd. I did not have any problems after my first shot. My 20 year old granddaughter is going to nursing school and works in the hospital, so she has had both shots. She had a bad reaction after the 2nd shot.

Rest in Peace Charles

 My condolences to Pat's wife, Carolyn, and their family on the death of him.  The last time I remember seeing them together was at our last class reunion and when I was looking at the photos I thought how special the photo was of them together.  Our class in school had so many students and some of even my closest friends we were never in any classes together during our junior high and high school years.  I do not remember if Pat and I were ever in any classes together, but I do remember seeing him in school and he was always a pleasant and helpful student.  Praying for Pat's family that God will comfort them as only He can.
