Kevin LeRoy Smith, 61, of Lebanon, died Nov. 25, 2017, at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.
He was born Nov. 27, 1956, in Fort Carson, Colo. to Vernon D. and Rose Marlene (Worm) Smith.
Kevin was preceded in death by his father.
He was raised in a military family and lived most of his early years at various military posts in United States and Europe. Kevin attended Waynesville High School in Missouri and graduated from the University of Texas, Brownsville. The majority of his career was as a cancer radiologist at McAllen Medical Center in McAllen, Texas. However, treatment for his own failing health brought him back to his beloved Missouri where he was able to participate in the outdoor activities he enjoyed as a youth. Kevin was a loving son, brother, uncle and grandson, and a caring neighbor and friend.
Kevin is survived by his mother, Rose Marlene Behrens, of Alamo, Texas; a sister, Verna Joy Torres, of Checotah, Okla. and nieces Alicia, Andrea, Maranda, Mariah and a nephew, Jacob.
A private service for Kevin LeRoy Smith will be held at a later date. Burial will be in Mount Rose Memorial Park Chapel Mausoleum under the care and direction of Holman-Howe Funeral Home of Lebanon.
