Rhett Nicholas Smith was born Novemeber 7th, 1993 to DJ and Stephanie Smith of Frankfort IN. growing up his hobbies included: fishing, wading in creeks, hunting, baseball, basketball, drawing, listening to music, dancing (signature move: the "party boy" ) and spending time with his family and friends. Rhett had an amazing smile and incredible personality that anyone would latch on to. His favorite holiday food growing up was deviled eggs which Rhett reffered to as "poop eggs". He loved animals and often visited the Frankfort animal shelter located at the T.P.A. park. He participated on a basketball team at the Frankfort boys and girls club, and played baseball for a local Frankfort team when he was around 5 or 6 years old. Entering his teenage years Rhett took on new interests such as: skateboarding, hanging out on the town with friends, and getting peircings and tatoos, including one of which he had a memorial tatoo for his late Grandma Donna on his arm. He was baptized with his best friend, and attended youth group at a church in frankfort. Rhett faced everyday teenage boy challenges and had his fair share of ups and downs. Rhett Nicholas Smith was 17 years old and approaching his senior year of high school, when on the night of July 23rd. 2011; he was struck and killed while crossing the street by a DRUNK AND DRUGGED DRIVER. In his honor his family asks that you take a moment and think twice for the sake of our family and yours the next time you allow yourself or someone you know to get in a vehicle while under the infleunce of drugs or alcohol. this didn't have to happen to Rhett, and his life didn't have to end. He still had many great years ahead of him. our prayer is that JUSTICE IS SERVED FOR RHETT. <3 LIVE ABOVE THE INFLUENCE AND FIGHT THE FIGHT AGAINST DRUNK/DRUGGED DRIVING!
