Honoring Sgt. Jim Smith
In honor of Sgt. Jim Smith, who lost his life in the line of duty on April 9, 2021, we wanted to do something to remember his life of service. Sgt. Smith was a 27-year veteran with the Iowa State Patrol. Jim was an upholder of justice, a loving husband and father, a comedian, a humble man of God and a superhero.
This year the Cattlemen's Beef Quarters will be donating a portion of every breakfast sold during the 2021 Iowa State Fair, to the Memorial Account in Jim's name.
Sgt. Smith is survived by his wife and two children. He is and will be missed by them and those that were lucky enough to know him.
