Island Reporter, Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

On Monday, April 30, we lost a great man. There are no words to describe the void that now exists in John Louis Smith's absence. A devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, he was the core of our family. He was so many things to so many people, but to his family he was a hero. He always had an answer to every question, and a solution to any problem.

His greatest desire was to be with his family as much as possible, and we were always happy to be at his side. Whether we were on his farm in Virginia, on his dock on Sanibel Island, or at a restaurant in New York City; he was happiest as long as the light of his life, his beloved wife, was next to him. He was the bright spot at any party and one of the best storytellers on the planet; he could command a room with his gentle manner and wide smile.

We are absolutely devastated to have lost such a loving and generous man. His spirit can be seen everywhere on his farm, from the vegetables that he planted himself, to the vibrant glass sculptures that he chose. But mostly, we see him in every flower and in every living thing that he nourished.

We will forever live in his honor, and we will strive to make sure that our every action is a reflection of the wisdom that he imparted.

Mourning him are his loving wife, Elisabeth Vegard Smith; daughters, Sonja Vegard Fallon and Christina Vegard Anderson; sons-in-law, Andrew Fallon and Simon Anderson; grandchildren Dylan Elisabeth Anderson, John Harlan Anderson and Finn Edward Fallon. Countless friends can join us in knowing that we were truly blessed to have known such an incredible man.
