The Navy Sailor was one of five service members killed in the Chattanooga shootings two weeks ago. He was shot three times when the gunman opened fire. He made it through several surgeries but passed away in the hospital two days later due to the damage to his liver and colon.

Smith, a Logistics Specialist, was stationed in Norfolk from 2011 to 2014 aboard the USS Wasp before transferring to Tennessee.

He was a loving husband and father to three girls.

His remains were returned to his family on Sunday and his funeral will be held at First Baptist Church in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia on Tuesday afternoon. He will be buried at Chattanooga National Cemetery.
