Darrell “Woody” Smokey: July 4, 1948 to February 28, 2024

“On February 28, 2024 we lost our loved one Darrell ” Woody” Smokey to Colon cancer. Darrell was known to many as Woody. Darrell was a Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Brother. He was married to Elaine Dini-Whistler Smokey of Schurz over 40 years, with 2 sons, 2 daughters. Woody was a tough cowboy who worked many rodeos behind the chutes and in the corrals at local and nearby towns. Woody was a heavy equipment operator and worked for the Walker River Paiute Tribe for many years. Woody was diagnosed with colon cancer 5 years ago and given 2 weeks to live. A man of faith, Woody placed his trust in God and prayed fervently for all those around him. Woody loved his family and gave a helping hand to whoever needed it. We are raising funds to cover funeral and burial expenses during this difficult time. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated.”  With Love and Respect, Elaine & Family
