Ronald Joseph Smith, Jr., age 58, of Rising Sun, MD passed away on October 13, 2018. Born on September 7, 1960 in Upland, PA. Ron was the son of Shirley Ann (Booth) Smith and the late Ronald Joseph Smith, Sr.

Ron moved to Rising Sun when he was 12 years old and became very active within the community, which he grew to love. He attended Rising Sun High School and then transferred to West Nottingham Academy. After graduation, he went on to attend Harford Community College where he received an Associate's Degree. Ron owned and operated his own HVAC business for over 30 years. He was an extremely hard worker, but also known to play just as hard. Ron loved sports and coached many teams throughout his life. He also loved horses and motorcycles; he always enjoyed riding at the Ocean City, MD and Daytona, FL bike weeks. A well loved and very generous man, Ron will always be remembered for his love of having fun with his friends and family.
