Funeral Home: Sunset Memorial Funeral Home
Wyatt Doyle Smith, 23, of Parkersburg, WV passed away Saturday, March 9, 2019 at home surrounded by family and friends.
Wyatt was a graduate of Parkersburg South High School. He was an avid Mountaineer football fan and always had tremendous support from their team and staff. Any free time he had was spent fishing on the family’s favorite dock or at rock concerts with his brother and friends. His sense of humor exceeded even the greatest of comedians and his pure heart was truly unmatched.
One of his many passions was to spread awareness about Cystic Fibrosis. He was an avid speaker for foundations such as Make-A-Wish and Children’s Miracle Network. A hero to us all, Wyatt was proudly appointed an Honorary Swat team member for the Pittsburgh PD. With a selfless heart and zero complaints, Wyatt was proud he could be someone doctors learned from after a lifelong battle of CF. Wyatt was a Warrior and we will find a cure!
Wyatt is survived by his parents, Carolyn and Randy, brother ,Tyler (Jaycee) Ballard, Papaw “Chuck” Mowery, nephew, Korbin, Aunts, Cheryl (Gaylon), Diana “Didi”, Cynthia (Joe), Connie “Slappy” (Jerry), Jeannette, Jeanne, Candace (Alvis), Christie, Uncles, Chuckie (Kendra), David (Debbie), Rodney (Denise), many cousins and many friends. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Duane and Jean Smith and his Memaw Evelyn Mowery.
From the nurses to the valet and everyone in between, the family can’t thank the staff at UPMC enough; especially 10DG. Per Wyatt’s wishes, the family asks everyone to sport their best West Virginia attire to services. Visitation will be Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Sunset Memorial Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. with Minister Pat Stowers officiating. Interment will follow at Pleasant View Cemetery.
