Funeral services will be held for Petroleum Engineering Alumnus and friend Ryan W. Smith on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 3:00p.m. at the Cathedral of St John Berchmans.  Dr. Stephen Sears, Chairman at the time of Ryan’s graduation in 2010 had this to say, “The faculty and staff of the LSU Craft & Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering Department are deeply saddened by Ryan's untimely passing.  We have had thousands of students study in our department over the last decade, and Ryan truly stood out.  His outgoing personality, desire to help others, and keen interest in all aspects of petroleum engineering endeared him to all of us.  We will miss him.”  Our thoughts are with his family during this time.
