Granger Smith’s 3-Year-Old Son Dies After Tragic Accident: “Our Family Is Devastated”

Granger Smith’s 3-Year-Old Son Dies After Tragic Accident: “Our Family Is Devastated”

River Kelly Smith, the 3-year-old son of Granger Smith and wife Amber, has died “following a tragic accident.”

Granger made the announcement via a statement released by his PR team, which you can read below.

I have to deliver unthinkable news. We’ve lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith. Following a tragic accident, and despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived. Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life. Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father. Riv was special. Everyone that met him knew that immediately. The joy he brought to our lives cannot be expressed and his light will be forever in our hearts. If there are words to say more, I cannot find them in this moment. Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this.

Thank you,
Granger Smith

Our thoughts are with Granger, Amber and their children, London and Lincoln.

In lieu of sympathies, the Smith family asks that donations be made in the name of River Kelly Smith to Dell Children’s Medical Center.
