Christopher Anthony Smith passed from this life on June 11, 2023 at the age of 38. He was born August 9, 1984 in Lubbock, TX to Anita Camargo and Harold Donald Smith Jr. He attended Shallowater ISD, Richard Milburn Academy and South Plains College. Christopher proudly served for 8 years in the United States Army and completed two combat tours during the Iraqi Freedom War. On October 19, 2018 Christopher married Alexandrea, and they shared five years together. He was a member of St. Phillip's Benizi Catholic Church and Veterans of Wars. Christopher enjoyed playing baseball, golfing, fishing, playing with his children, walking his dog Evie, playing his guitar, and singing. He was a die hard fan of the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Tech sports, and anything Star Wars.
Christopher will be remembered for his contagious smile and laughter and big embracing hugs. The love he had for his "little" grandma Camargo who was his rock, joking around with his brothers, always wanting his mom's home cooking, his expert skills on the grill, his generosity and big giving heart, being his Aunt Sherry and Debbie's first living doll, but most of all for the love he had for his children.
Christopher is survived by his wife Alexandrea and his children Enrique and Anna of Lubbock, TX, Ely and Tatianna of Amarillo, TX, and Daniel and Isaiah of Seligman, MO, his mother Anita Camargo and Gilbert Blanco of Shallowater, TX, his father Harold D.
