“Brayden attained a lifelong dream as a five-time champion on the popular ‘Jeopardy!’ television game show,” Smith’s obituary stated. “His appearances were among the last hosted by Alex Trebek, and Brayden was hailed on social media as ‘Alex’s Last Great Champion.’ He was looking forward to competing in the show’s Tournament of Champions.”

“Brayden loved classic and not-so-classic movies,” his obituary said. “He could be explaining the symbolism in Citizen Kane one moment and the comedic timing in Dumb And Dumber the next. He played the saxophone and enjoyed listening to a variety of music, from Duke Ellington, Chet Baker and Miles Davis to the Beach Boys, Steely Dan, and Toto. He was an avid sports fan, cheering on the Detroit Tigers and Vegas Golden Knights.”

“I’m really grateful for everything, all the opportunities that I had,” Smith said after his “Jeopardy!” streak ended, according to Entertainment Tonight. “I was glad that I was able to show what I was capable of.”
