He was born in St. Albans on September 16th, 2006, to David and Melaney (Cyr) Smith.
Carson was an outstanding young man with a love for anything with wheels and a motor, he would do anything to pull a wheelie or a burnout. Carson who was a known country boy, loved to hunt and fish, and always promised he was going to shoot Papa's big 10-point buck. Carson, also known as "Smitty" was caring, compassionate, and helpful to his family and friends. Carson enjoyed spending time with his brother Cole and being able to shoot guns with him. Carson always made time for the love of his life, Macie and always went above and beyond to see her or spend time with her. He would go out of his way to make someone's day and always had the biggest smile and gave the biggest hugs to everyone he loved. Carson loved to cook and there may be a rumor that he was the "Master Chef" at Thirsty Burger or the Pinecone. Carson had a big heart for his pets and animals. He loved helping his Papa and the neighbors, the Bates in the Sugarhouses, he enjoyed tapping and always stayed to help boil. Carson's longtime ambition was to become a truck driver or heavy equipment operator. He will always be Mama's porcupine.
