Obituary Highlights:

Tom “Divot” Smith passed peacefully into the hands of our Lord on March 23, 2015 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Tom was born to Ray and Paula Smith on September 30, 1963 in Levelland, Texas. As the son of an F-4 fighter pilot and grandson of a World War II B-26 pilot, Tom had military aviation in his blood. He graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a BS in Finance and received his Air Force commission from Officer Training School in 1988. He also earned a Masters in Aeronautical Science from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 2000. Tom was an up and coming Air Force officer and following a brief stint as an F-111 weapon systems officer, he graduated from pilot training #1 in his class and earned an F-16 position. Flying the F-16 took the Smiths around the world, including assignments in Germany and South Korea. He held the esteemed position as Commander of the F-16 combat ready 34th “Rams” Fighter Squadron.
