LORIN SMITH Son, brother, father, friend and boss, Lorin Farr Smith, passed away July 7, 2018. He was born July 2, 1965, to loving parents, Lane Farr Smith and Waltraut Martha Schneider. He was the third child in a family of 10 children and grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, graduating from Brighton High School. Lorin was active in sports earning numerous medals and trophies as a swimmer and wrestler. He was also a star debater having never lost a debate. He went on to graduate from California State University Sacramento with a Bachelor's Degree in Government and later earned his Teaching Credential. He continued to live in Sacramento, where he worked as a schoolteacher and swim coach. His swim team was very successful and he was beloved as both a coach and teacher. He also worked as a Realtor and Insurance Broker. Lorin was one of the founding members of the sport of Disc Golf and served as President on the Board of Directors of the Professional Disc Golf Association. This sport has grown to have millions of participants worldwide. Lorin was a dedicated father to his child, Noah, whom he loved dearly and who was the center of his world. More than anything he cared for and nurtured his beloved Noah. In 2009, Lorin moved to Las Vegas, closer to his brothers. For the last three years, Lorin served as the Office Manager for one of the largest and busiest medical practices in Nevada, also serving as Project Manager for the construction of one of the largest buildings dedicated to cosmetic surgery in the United States. This building has been named in his honor, as the Lorin Farr Smith Building. Lorin was kind and understanding to all who knew him, and fair to his employees. He was honest, hardworking, personable and always had a smile on his face for both friends and strangers. He will be greatly missed by his employees, friends and family and is cherished now by a loving Heavenly Father. He felt the best years of his life were ahead of him and it was a shock to all when he was suddenly taken after surviving a severe heart attack. He knew he was loved and carries that knowledge into the next life. He is survived by his child, Noah; his nine brothers and sisters, Lane, Michelle, Renee, Lara, Joseph, Evan, Cherie, Stephanie and Angelica; parents, Waltraut and Lane; his partner, Bernadeth Escovilla; his many cousins, nieces and nephews; his life-long friend, Andreas Steinmann; and his employees all who love and miss him. We trust in our savior the Lord Jesus Christ and that his father in Heaven will watch over him. Visitation will be 3-5 p.m. Saturday, July 14, with service following, both at Palm Mortuary, 7979 W. Warm Springs Road, Las Vegas.
