June 25, 2022

Tyreese “Ty” Deshon Smith passed away unexpectedly after a tragic car accident on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at the age of 16. He was the loving son of Bernice McKenzie.

He recently completed his sophomore year at Conestoga Valley High School, where he played on the Varsity football team. Ty loved playing sports. He was in the CV Mat Club and Youth Football during 5th and 6th grade. He also played on the Junior High Football and Basketball teams.

Ty will be remembered for his playful personality and his ability to bring joy to others. He had an infectious smile that naturally attracted people to him. He was dedicated to his family and will be remembered for his countless selfless acts.
He will be sorely missed by his mother Bernice; brother John Weigele; half-sisters, Ashley and Amber Smith; many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family; as well as his teammates and classmates. He was preceded in passing by his maternal grandmother, Diane McKenzie.

A Funeral Service will be held at 1 PM on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543. A viewing will be held from 10 AM until 1 PM at the funeral home. Guests are encouraged to wear their CV gear and be comfortable. The Rowdy Rills are welcome. Interment will follow at Mellinger Mennonite Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer memorial contributions be directed to The Tyreese Smith Scholarship Fund, c/o Conestoga Valley School District, 2110 Horseshoe Road, Lancaster, PA 17601.

Bernice,
I can’t imagine the pain and hearbreak you, John, and your entire family are experiencing.  Ty was such an awesome kid!  My favorite memory of him will always be from just last football season, I know you know it well.  The last game of the season, senior night, pouring down rain, and CV getting hammered by the other team.  Coach puts Ty in as running back late in the 4th quarter and he became a beast and was unstoppable.  We all were so happy and proud of him, you especially!  There was no way we were going to come back and win, but he helped us end the night on a higher note with his infectious smile and excitment and love for the game.  My family is grateful and honored that we had the priveledge of knowing him through you, a life long school friend, and through football.  He will be greatly missed by all!  You are in our hearts and our prayers!
