Following in his fathers’ footsteps, Dayne became an auctioneer in 2000 and opened Smoot Auction Service in Eugene. Several years later he became a finish carpenter and started With Pride Construction LLC. The name was perfect because everything Dayne did, was with pride. His attention to detail was extraordinary always reminding his kids that anything worth doing was worth doing well.
Dayne had many hobbies including fishing, bow hunting and riding his motorcycle. Dayne’s devotion for these things was only surpassed by the love he had for his family. Dayne was loved and respected by many and will be missed dearly.
