Community Memorial Benches

Creating community memorial benches brings friends and family together to commemorate a beloved individual who has passed away. At Smith Steel Works, we design benches that are sturdy and built to withstand various weather conditions. This specific bench was created in memory of Aaron Abbot, a cherished figure in the Tehachapi, California community. It’s been installed in a park, providing a serene space for everyone to come and fondly remember Aaron.

 For Aaron Abbot

Bringing Communities Together

Aaron was a cherished member of his church, workplace, and neighborhood. Throughout his adult life, he dedicated 32 years to serving his community through his position at Tehachapi Save Mart. In a collaborative effort, both his church and Save Mart  crafted this exquisite bench as a tribute to their friend. These memorial benches help in the grieving process, providing a means to bring loved ones together and celebrate the life of the departed.

Powder Coated Finish

What makes our benches standout? We only use strong polyester powders that keep their color. No need to worry about sun fade or chalking with our benches. Our three-step powder coating process protects the metal from rust and other weathering issues.
