Brock Jacque Smith


Brock Jacque’ Smith Jr., unexpectedly left this life on October 2, 2017, just shy of the gentle age of 4 months. Brock was born June 9, 2017 at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI. Brock was a bright-eyed bouncing baby boy. The light of his parent’s life. He had just begun to hold his bottle and rock to music when he heard it. He had become very observant to the world around him. He enjoyed taking car rides with his feet kicked up on his car seat watching things pass by. The smile he gave would brightened up any room.
