William Paul Smart


William (Bill) Paul Smart, 69, of Napa, CA, passed away Tuesday, April 2, 2019, at Hospice of the Valley in Scottsdale, AZ, where his sister, Cindy Nash, resides with her family.
Bill is survived by his sister, Cindy Nash and her husband, Gary Nash. He is also survived by his nieces, Sheila Nash (married to Gabe Horrisberger) and Kelly (Nash) Carlsen as well as great-nephew, Dylan Carlsen.
Bill was born March 17, 1950, in Pleasant Hill, son of the late Robert Wayne Smart and Ruth Elise (Coleman) Smart.
Bill worked for many years as a system analyst in the Sonoma County hospital system where he was a mentor of his craft. He made many long-time friends during his career in Napa. Even though he became a resident of Napa, CA, several years ago, he stayed in close touch with friends from Tennessee. Some of these friends shared his passion for snow skiing and he enjoyed taking ski trips with them. After retiring, Bill lived out his dream of traveling the world, visiting Paris, Amsterdam, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and many other places.
Funeral services will be held at Bilbrey Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 10, at 1 p.m. with Rev. Shane Williams and Bill's cousin, Scot Shanks, officiating. Bill's good friend, Robby Safdie, will be speaking as well. Interment in Green Acres Memory Gardens.
