Dana Scott Smart
Dana Scott Smart, 40, of Hudson and Nashua, NH passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, April 1, 2012 at Southern NH Medical Center in Nashua, NH. He was born in Nashua, on July 7, 1971, the son of Judith Dionne and Scott P. Smart.
Dana was a very proud asphalt paver – he worked with his father side by side at Smart Paving. Later he owned and operated Smart & Son Paving hoping some day to pave alongside his son. He loved to fish, sitting by the fire pit with friends and family, animals, especially his cat Lamont and loved and lived life. Dana’s greatest achievement and passion in life are his two sons Aaron and Bryson. Dana was full of love and caring. His greatest joy were his children, he lived and died for his children. He will leave a void in this world that will be filled by everyone’s memories and love for him. He had an infectious laugh that we will hear forever. Dana always got right back up no matter what life gave him. His favorite saying was “woops didn’t see that coming.”
He is predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Roscoe and Marcelline Fussell and his paternal grandparents, Richard and Mary Smart.
Dana is survived by his mother and stepfather, Judith and Robert, Sr. Dionne of Nashua; his father and stepmother, Scott P. and Yvonne Smart of Nashua; two sons, Aaron Smart and Tara Laflamme of Dracut, MA and Bryson Smart of Nashua; a daughter, Katie Smart of Nashua; his sister and best friend, Jillian Smart Benoit and her husband Steven of Litchfield; his favorite nephew and Godson, Brady Benoit of Litchfield; two stepdaughters, Julia Prince and Ashley Miles both of Stark, NH; many loving stepbrothers and sisters, including, Richard and Candice Dingee of Newburyport, MA, Tami Dingee of Gilford, NH and Sabrina and Trevor Champion of Vacaville, CA; as well as many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.
