Jordan C. Smith, 12

Jordan C. Smith, age 12 of Cozad, very much loved youngest son of Kelly and Karla Smith, passed away, Thursday, June 5, 2014, at his home. Jordan was born July 12, 2001, at Hastings, to Kelly and Karla (Scarrow) Smith. He attended Cozad Elementary and Middle Schools. It was Jordan's passion to travel to other planets and to mingle with the stars. He had an extreme curiosity of other dimensions and life after our own.Especially after the loss of his uncle, Glen Smith, in a 2014 automobile accident. However, he had never made any indication whatsoever of any intention of leaving us.He loved to play video games, football, go swimming, and hanging out with his sister Jacey. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and target shooting. Jordan was a happy, loving and caring young man. He warmed our hearts everyday with his non-stop smiles and laughter. He will be missed more than words could ever say. We pray that Jordan's journey leads him to the destination he was seeking. He was preceded in death by an infant sister, Kelsey Smith; maternal grandparents, Don and Brenda Scarrow; uncle Damon Scarrow; great-uncles, Glen Smith, Edward Smith, Don Smith and Lorin Wagner; great-grandparents, Edwin and Virginia Smith, Clyde and Elinor Wagner, and Wilber and Esther Kruse; and great-great-aunt, Dolly Zlomke.
