Royale D'Von Smith Jr.
Never got to meet his baby
He “was my everything,” his girlfriend would say. “I went to him for everything. He was my go-to. Even though I was older, he taught me so much.”
Royale D’Von Smith Jr., 18, was killed in a drive-by shooting after a friend’s birthday party in Jacksonville, Florida, on June 5, 2018. Five months later, his girlfriend found out they were having a little baby boy. “Royale prolly mad,” she said, laughing. “He wanted a girl.”
