Mr. Smith died Dec. 8, 2012, in his home with his family, after a long illness. He was born Feb. 17, 1943, in Summerville, Ga.
He gave generously and unselfishly to his family and friends. He dedicated himself to his family and provided for them the best that he could; they were his number one priority. He loved good food, country and western dancing and good friends. He was instrumental in passing on lifelong lessons. He taught responsibility and dedication by example.
