of West Memphis, AR

July 11, 1978 - June 22, 2022

Nathan Scott Smith, 43, of West Memphis, Arkansas, passed away June 22, 2022 in Bentonville, Arkansas.

He is survived by his children, Emily Bailee Smith, Garrott Nathaniel Smith and Addison Rose Smith; father, Ronnie Smith (Ann) and mother, Sarah Beth Christian (Don); brothers, Ronnie Smith (Allie) and Bryan Smith (Angie); step-brothers, Donnie and Ben Christian (Lesley); uncles, Steve Smith (Darlene), James L.Garrott, Jr.; aunts, Nancy Garrott, Lynn Garrott and cousins, Daniel Garrott, Emily Garrott, Todd Smith and Tracy Thomas (Jordan).

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Orbin and Marjorie Lee Smith, James L. and Bobbie Lee Garrott and Uncle, Dan Garrott.

Nathan was a devoted father and a selfless champion for the down and out. When he entered a room, every person, regardless of age, would be drawn to Nathan's radiant and magnetic charisma. In his profession as a salesman, he was second to none. He was not only easy to love, but he also excelled in making others feel loved. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Gosh. I’m so very sorry to hear the sad news of Nathan’s passing. When I think of Nathan I can only think of a vibrant smiling friendly kind giving loving fun happy fabulous dad/son/husband/hard worker who always made everyone feel welcome. I know, Sarah Beth, that as mothers we love hard and strong and true and endlessly and unconditionally. I cannot imagine the hardness of this. I love you. My prayers are with you and Nathan and his beautiful children, Bailee, Garrott, and Addison.

To Jessica and all of Nathan's Family,

I am so so sorry about Nathan. Although I had not seen Nathan recently, we were really good friends while I attended First Baptist Church as a child/teenager. I have so many hilarious memories of Nathan
He really would light up the room with his presence. I remember the first time he introduced Jessica to me. He was so proud to be married to you. I realize there is literally nothing I can say to make you feel better, just know that you are all in my prayers.

Nathan was one of the first people I met when I moved to Memphis and knew no one. He was so kind to me and always made me feel like so much more than just a work friend. I have many memories of belly laughs over the silliest things. Nathan always had that ability to make everyone smile and laugh. My sincerest condolences to his family. You all will be my in prayers as you grieve this loss.

To all of Nathan’s family, we are keeping you in our prayers . We all loved Nathan, and have only sweet memories of our years spent with him . One of my earliest memories is of the morning Sarah Beth and I discovered toddlers Nathan and Andrea , had escaped from the nursery and were climbing up the stairs in Lehr Hall. Just one of the reasons Nathan gave us reason to laugh. We are heart broken for you all, but also giving thanks to the Lord knowing you will one day be reunited. Love and prayers from Sharon and Larry Baker and family.
