Darwin Richard Smith was born June 9, 1947 to Bergen and Alice Smith and died on June 23, 2004. Funeral services were held at the Anderson Funeral Home in Augusta on Monday, June 28, 2004, with Pastor Greg Buckli officiating. Darwin was a Special Needs teacher at the professional Building in Neillsville.

Darwin, crippled by the deadly polio, knew about special needs. It was one of the things that made him an outstanding teacher who was loved and respected by the community.

Darwin is survived by his wife, Roxanne; his son, Nathan (Nicole Brown); his stepson, Chris Martin; step-granddaughter, Nevada Martin: eight siblings, Ralph Smith; Herbert (Dawn) Smith; Bonnie (Chuck) Straube; Arlo (Shirley) Smith; Gladys (Art) Bowen; Nancy (Jim) Breitung; Duane (Carla) Smith; Etta (Bob) Czarnik; a sister-in-law, Voyna Smith; and his father and mother-in-law, Ronald and Phyllis Lane.

Preceding Darwin in death are his parents; two brothers, Everett and Oakley; and two sisters, Marie (Smith) Mueller and Betty Smith.

Condolences are extended to the family of Darwin Smith.
