Ricky Donald Smuin

Ricky Donald Smuin, age 63, passed away September 7, 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on January 3, 1956 to Roland Dale Smuin and Ruth Elaine Cooley.

Ricky came to live at The INN Between in August of this year suffering from heart issues. Ricky had been living in a motel and it was becoming difficult for him to manage his health on his own in that environment. 

Ricky quickly settled in with us. He was a talented artist and spent a great deal of time drawing pictures for both our residents and staff. He loved attending our jewelry class and worked on both repairing jewelry and coming up with new creations. He was eager to help in any way he could, but his health quickly deteriorated. 

Ricky was extremely proud of being sober in the final months of his life and he worked hard to maintain that through his final days.

Ricky will be missed by all at The INN Between. Final arrangements have been handled by family.
