Floyd Smith was born August 19, 1941, to the late Dewitt Smith Sr and Dollie Mae Body in Limestone, Texas. He received his early education from schools in Kosse, Thornton, and Groesbeck TX. As a youth, he enjoyed playing basketball with his friends and family.

After leaving Kosse he moved to Dallas where he met and married Patricia Ann Richard. He later married Lois Marie Tucker who preceded him in death. He is also preceded in death by his brothers Dewitt Smith Jr; Robert Pondexter Smith (“Pete”); sisters Mary Alice Smith (Eldridge); Dollie Mae Smith (Barnes); Vera Mae Smith (Nevels); and his daughter Elisha Harris.

Floyd worked as a truck driver for 40 years until his retirement. He loved playing dominoes, bingo, and watching sports. His favorite team was the Dallas Cowboys. Anyone who knew him knew that he was always kind and friendly. He could walk into a room full of people he didn’t know, and leave knowing everyone because he was always telling jokes. He loved meeting new people. He was one of the coolest and sharpest dressing people you could know and he remained that way to the end. How many men do you know at 79 that can still rock a fresh pair of Jordan's? Dad was too cool!

On Saturday morning, March 19, 2021, we sadly said goodbye to a God fearing man, who brought joy to so many throughout his 79 years on earth.

He leaves to cherish his memories his sister, Zelma Ruth Smith (Taylor) of Dallas; mother-in-law, Fluorine Bell (age 101); children Darrell Smith Sr of Dallas; David Smith (Bridgett) of Dallas; Denine Smith (Hines) of University Place WA, Dirk Smith of Sacramento Ca, Dedra Smith (Lewis) of Beaumont Ca; Deanna Quarles of Wichita Falls, TX; Laquita Tucker (Hill) of Dallas; Pamela Harris of Dallas; thirteen grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

To Floyd my dad,
Although we didn't talk much when I was younger my dad would always kept in contact with my grandmother to fine out how we were doing. (All of the kids) And when I reconnected with him in 2017 we had alot of laughs and I enjoyed spending time with him. I prayed, read scriptures, and sang to him the day before he passed. I felt blessed getting to introduce my dad to my savior Jesus. Until resurrection day we shall see each other. Dedra
