It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of one of our Covenant Eyes family members. Patrick Smith died in an auto accident Thursday, March 7, near Owosso, Michigan. He is survived by his wife and five children.
Patrick Smith led Covenant Eyes’ largest department, customer service, comprised of 80 employees. He began working as a customer service representative at Covenant Eyes in March of 2012, then became product development manager in 2014, and joined the executive team as vice president of customer service in 2015.
Patrick Smith embodied the essence of Covenant Eyes. When crafting the message of a Covenant Eyes’ video titled “Be Accountable. Be Great,” Patrick was an easy choice to be featured in the video. The video says, “A man of integrity doesn’t just do what he wants. He does what he should.” Those words echo in the hearts and minds of all who knew him and worked with him. He was loved and honored as an exemplary member of our team, at the forefront of our mission to help those who struggle overcome pornography, or never start.
Gentle, yet courageous. Honest, yet loving. Leader, and servant. Patrick Smith leaves behind a legacy for all of us to emulate. We grieve with the Smith family and offer our love, prayers, and sincerest condolences.
