Monday, July 27, 2020

It is with profound sadness that the family of Andrew Walker Smith announces his passing, after a brief illness, in Minneapolis on July 16, 2020.

Born March 9, 1961, Andrew (or Walker, as he was known to many friends) is survived by his son, Maxwell Traxler Smith; his mother, Marjorie G. Smith; his sisters, Cheri (Patrick Meehan) and Cindy Smith and Candace (Bruce) Walker; his nieces, Carolyn (Andrew) Cole and Sarah Walker; his great-niece, Diane, and great-nephew, Daniel; and his beautiful dog, Ava.

He is preceded in death by his beloved father Daniel L. Smith.

He attended Carleton College and the University of Minnesota and spent the last 27 years of his career working for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, following his passion for the environment.

He was also a tremendous music lover and passed along many of his musical tastes to members of his family.

Walker will be remembered for his kindness, generosity and gentle spirit.

Memorial services will be held in his hometown of Greencastle at a date to be determined. Donations in his memory can be made to the Humane Society, the Nature Conservancy, the Fort Snelling Foundation or a charity of your choice.
