David Smolensky, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and a resident of Hammond, Louisiana died Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at the age of 84. Paw Paw loved being with his grandchildren the most. They were his whole world. He especially enjoyed watching them playing sports. Spending hours in gyms to watch basketball and all day Saturday at the football games to weeknights watching baseball games. Even traveling to other states for travel ball and playoffs, he was always the first one in the car, ready to go. Paw Paw was always the designated driver to take Danny, Katie, and their friends where ever they wanted to go. Dad moved to Texas to stay with Stan a few years. He loved the Barbeque and being with his oldest son. Eventually he wanted to move back to Louisiana a few years after his youngest son, Joel and two Children, Jax and London followed. He spent the last years having spent time with all of us. Our family wishes to thank all of you for making him feel a part of your family, and loving him.
