Roger Smith

July 3, 1989 — January 3, 2024

Roger A. Smith Jr., 34, was a lifelong resident of the North Country.

We lost Roger Jr. "June" on January 3, 2024, in Parishville, NY. He is survived by his son, Chase Allen; parents Stephanie and Roger; sisters Erin and Christy and his brother Wade.

Jr. was born in Middletown, NY. June attended St. Lawrence Central school and worked as a carpenter for Saint Lawrence Services.

Roger was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, and many called him friend.

June was a little guy with a huge heart. Jr had a wealth of knowledge on many subjects and had a great passion for spending time on the water. Whether from a canoe or an ice shanty, June was at his happiest when he was stretching lines. He was very proficient at it and loved sharing his knowledge with others.

The heartache and love that is felt by many from the loss of Roger will last the hands of time.

Arrangements are entrusted to Hammill Funeral Home in Winthrop.

A celebration of life will be held on Sunday January 14th from 1 - 4 pm at the Helena Fire Department.

In lieu of flowers Jr's family requests donations be made to help offset cost related to services and for his son, Chase Allen.
