On December 20, 2018, Eric Smith, age 31, of Gahanna, Ohio, went home to be with Jesus his Savior. He showed courage and grace during numerous treatments for lymphoma. He spent his last days at home enjoying time with family and friends. Eric is survived by his loving wife Erin (Garner) Smith, children Evalyn and Walker, sister Ellen (Smith) DeVine, parents Brian and Lisa Smith, grandparents Fred and Mary Sue Smith, step grandmother Ginger Landwert, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by grandparents Ralph and Eva Landwert. Eric was a light in this world to many, including family, friends, coworkers, and those to whom he ministered at his church, New Life in Gahanna. He was a graduate of Olentangy Liberty High School and Cedarville University, and was employed as a programmer by Spida Software in Gahanna. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, you consider a donation to Safe Families Central Ohio at their Facebook page. (Eric and Erin had completed training in hopes of being a host home for children of families in crisis.)
