Bret Smith passed away on August 28, 2017 far too soon at age 59.  Bret’s life passion was auto upholstery.  His work will live on in the countless car interiors he creatively and expertly crafted for car enthusiasts.  Bret never considered is work a job – he took great joy in the car owner’s face when they saw the amazing custom interiors he created.  He was undoubtedly one of the best auto trimmers in Colorado.

Bret lived most of his life in Wheat Ridge, including graduating from Jefferson High School.  He was an avid bicyclist, motorcyclist and outdoorsman.  He loved camping, fishing, boating, 4-wheeling and pretty much anything in the mountains.

Bret loved his boys so much that he glowed when he was with them or talked about them.  He was always so proud of them, no matter what they chose to do.  He shared his love of a good adventure with his sons and created memories that will last forever.

Bret touched the lives of so many people - they were not just friends but part of his extended family.  He was always there for his friends with his smile, wit and contagious laugh.  He was always there to support his buddies when they were struggling or needed help.  His friends were always there for him as well, and they meant the world to him.  As he always said, “You’re nothing without friends”.

He is survived by his sons Derrick and Tanner Smith, father Ronald Smith, sister Brenda Locricchio, brother Bryan Smith, Alisa Locricchio (niece), Joshua Smith (nephew), Linda Smith (former wife and mother of his sons), Lenny Cassidy (former wife) and Jill Howard (very dear friend).

A Celebration of Life will be held beginning at 4:00 pm, September 8th at Wheat Ridge Lanes, 6595 W. 38th Ave.  A memorial service will be held in Buena Vista at a later date.
