He was born on July 8, 1950, in Brookhaven to the late G.W. and Lottie Hart Smith.

He was a pest control technician, a bi-vocational preacher for over 40 years and a member of Calvary Baptist Church of Bogue Chitto. He loved the outdoors and nature, especially his many strolls up and down the creeks and rivers of southwest Mississippi, searching for artifacts and fossils. He had an enormous collection of Crinoid Stems and baseball cards with staggering numbers. He enjoyed many nights in his back yard, feeding the raccoons and flying squirrels, both of which warmed up to him very quickly.

He was a gentle man who loved to talk, write genealogy books and sing gospel music. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, two infant sisters and a son-in-law, Mike Nunnery.

Survivors include; two daughters and their spouses, Susan and Ken Dobson of Petal, and Shannon and Grant Nunnery of Liberty; one sister, Janell Smith White and husband, Kenny of Sumrall; five grandchildren, Lane Miller, Tyler Dobson, Colton Nunnery, Kayla Dobson and Rebekah Nunnery along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Lane Miller, Jim Winborne, Stan Winborne, Jeffery Winborne, Jakie Brent, Phillip Hemby, Terrell Rutland and Kenny White.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The Gideon’s International P.O. B.X. 140800, Nashville, TN 37214-0800 or Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery fund and East Lincoln Baptist Church.
