Thanks for coming out and supporting Joe Smith's family

When the community comes together to celebrate the life of one its great athletes, one of its beloved family members.

Thank you The dusty 45's for a rockin, rollin memorial to one of Ellensburg's favorite football players, fathers and friends. The band from Seattle.....joining many hundreds in Rodeo City to help raise money for the family of Joe Smith, the former All American kicker from Central Washington University who passed away unexpectedly a few months ago, leaving behind his long time love in life Tova Moller, their young daughter and a child on the way.

Tova Moller "It's pretty incredible the support everybody's shown us"

nat auctioneer bidding on some pretty cool items......in support of a pretty cool guy. Joe Smith, a proud member of the 2002 Hall of Fame CWU football squad......and, then the long ball booter for the Yakima Mavericks....setting all sorts of records......earning a free agent tryout with the New York Jets. A long time fixture in Ellensburg, Joe was a heck of a grid iron guy......and a heck of a nice guy. Tip of the KIMA Sports cap to everyone who showed up to help....

Eric Delozier "With the Kindness of the fammily, the friends, everybody that's here. Tremendous support from everybody. Incredible"
