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.
So very sorry for your loss, for the family. Grateful to God for men like Patrick Smith, leading to freedom those who suffer in bondage. May God comfort and provide for his family and Covenant Eyes in your grief and as you continue in ministry to set the captives free, in His name and to His glory.
We are praying for peace for the Smith and Covenant Eyes family.
This is so heartbreaking to read. What a difficult loss… we will be praying for Patrick’s family and all of you. We are very thankful for his contributions to helping so many families across our nation, and to move the cause of online accountability forward. What a legacy.
Eternal rest grant unto him Oh Lord and ma perpetual light shine upon him. May he Rest In Peace.
My deepest sympathies to the family and to Pat’s Covenant Eyes team.
Prayers for his family. So sorry to read of the loss of this precious life. May the God of peace grant it to you all as you celebrate Patrick’s life and ministry.

Patrick, well done good and faithful servant. As a user and promoter of CE for many years, thank you for contributing to my own sexual integrity efforts and for so many others as well.

My sincere condolences. His family will be in my prayers.
It’s with such sadness I write to say, I’m praying for the Smith family and the friends Patrick left behind at Covenant Eyes. At times like these when we don’t understand we can lean into our Father’s loving arms and trust that he is the same good God and Father today he was yesterday.
I will continue to pray for you all and look forward to seeing how God will bring beauty from these ashes.
I wanted to send my prayers to covenant eyes as well as the family of Patrick Smith. Thank you for your work and what you do!

My heart aches for his family!!!! I’m praying!!! Words can’t express….

As a customer of Covenant Eyes for many years, my heart goes to Mr. Patrick Smith family. Myself an orphan at 8, I’d like to tell Mrs. Smith that I’ve seen no orphan going wrong in life when the parent has left despite his will. Feel consoled by the fact that your children will do great in life as they have a father in Heaven pointed out their way (and yours). Many blessings ahead, Richard Bethencourt.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We had met Patrick many times thru our grandson, Robbie Wallace, We were always impressed with Patrick………he will be missed. Our sincere love….Bob & Cindy Fernau….Stevensville, Michigan
