Deon Smith Roadside Memorial in Buffalo, New York

Roadside Memorial for Deon Smith in Buffalo, New York

This Roadside Memorial in Buffalo New York is in memory of Deon’ Dra Smith was a 20 year old man from Warren, Ohio who was visiting family in Buffalo, New York on the weekend of June 5th, 2015.  He had a daughter in Buffalo and another one who lived in Warren, Ohio and he left behind several brothers and sisters, along with his parents. There is very little information that I could find on this story, other than Deon was shot several times at around 4:30 pm on Saturday June 6th, 2015 by a 17 year old boy along this quiet Buffalo street, inside a park.

Floyd I. Johnson ,of Buffalo, was charged with second-degree murder in Deon’s shooting death.

A short obituary can be found here in the local Warren, Ohio newspaper
