He made you feel special no matter how he felt and always welcomed friends to stop by for coffee and lots of stories.

She meant the world to him and he was so proud of her. Junior was preceded in death by his wife Patricia R Smith, parents Benton L and Ollie F Smith, brother Carl Smith and sister Ruby Smith.
