December 8th 1952 - July 12th 2021
After a courageous battle with cancer, our hearts are deeply saddened to announce his passing on July 12, 2021 at the Port Colborne Hospital. He was the loving son of the late Gordon and Mary Naylor. He leaves behind his wife and soul mate, Laura. Dear brother to Patsy (Michael) Aselstine, Hugh (Sheila) Naylor. Cherished uncle to Shannon Letwin and Taylor (Jessica) Letwin. Great uncle to Lauren Irene, Kylee Mary and John Michael Letwin who knew him as their Uncle Bear. Dear son-in-law of the late Norman and Caroline Smith and brother-in-law to Monica Healey, Lisa Docherty, Chris (Mary) Smith, Stanley (Beverly) Smith, Norman Smith (2018) David Smith and Glen (Gayle) Smith. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews of the Smith clan. He truly was a warrior in his battle with various cancers over the past year and a half. He can now lay down his sword and be at peace.
