Our father was a hard working, giving and loving man. Daddy was never selfish, always giving of himself and had the biggest heart. He loved all his children. Daddy also loved getting together with his children and family to celebrate birthdays, holidays and any kind of family gathering where there was always good food! Daddy’s laughter was so contagious. His beautiful smile and his bright blue eyes, always lit up the room! Daddy always knew what to say and knew how to make us laugh. Our father was definitely one of a kind. When God created our daddy he broke the mold!  We all loved our father.

He was preceded in death by mother, Marie McDaniel; father, Bernard Smith; and brothers, Edward Smith and Bernard Smith, Jr.
