June 15, 2021, 33, Goldsboro –
Jared Austin Smith passed away on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at his home. Austin was born in Wayne County to Sue Hurlburt Best and Linwood Worth Smith on January 29, 1988. He was a valued employee of Precision Plumbing in Goldsboro.
Austin enjoyed any and all daddy activities. Autumn was the apple of his eye and 100 percent a daddy’s girl. Austin was fun-loving, generous, and dependable. If you needed anything at all, all you had to do was call him on the phone and he would be right there. He went out of his way to help anyone who needed it.
A great cook, Austin was always ready to bring the family together for a great meal. He will be remembered by many as an avid Yankee’s fan. Austin was quite possible the Yankee’s biggest fan.
