Keefer Dennis Smith


Keefer Dennis Smith

June 27, 2000 ~ October 1, 2019


Keefer Dennis Smith, 19, passed away October 1, 2019. He was born June 27, 2000 to Sherri Smith and Michael Brockbank in Ogden, Utah. He never married.

Keefer was different- He was autistic. He embraced his differences and was able to love others who were different when society couldn’t. True to the obsessive nature of autism, Keefer was obsessed with science.

He graduated Ben Lomond High School while also attending the OWATC and Weber State University. He was developing a theory for Electrical De-atomization and dreamed of making teleportation a reality. Keefer was highly intelligent, kind, and accepting of everyone.

Keefer is survived by his mother Sherri Smith-Rice; father Michael Brockbank; and two brothers, Tiberius Brockbank and Kyle Smith.

Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, October 12th,  1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Lorin Farr Chapel, 1570 East 1300 South, Ogden, Utah  

Condolences may be sent to the family at: www.leavittsmortuary.com.

Mike, I am so sorry for your loss. There is nothing in this world that compares with the loss of a child. It goes against everything we believe in. Please know that although it never goes away, you get through it. Grief is not a destination, it is something we go through. Hopefully when we have sufficiently traveled through, we arrive at a place that acknowledges that although they are not currently here with us, they will always be with us in our hearts.
