Don Smothermon Born January 31, 1944 in Denton, Texas went home to meet his Lord and Savior on April 7, 2019 at the age of 75 in Mesquite, Texas. Don is preceded in death by his parents L. E. "Molly" and Annie Lee Smothermon. He is survived by his wife of 38 years Anita Smothermon, sons Gary Pearson and wife Jodi, Richard Pearson and wife Jane and Jeff Pearson, 8 grandchildren Meagan, Lacy, Taylor, Dakota, Brock, Jordan, Jade and Blake, 3 great grandchildren Kinley, Graham and Sloane, brother Johnnie Smothermon and wife Sandra, niece Carole Smothermon, nephew Cris Smothermon, great nephew Chris Hickman and many beloved cousins, family members and friends. Don was an avid sports fan, he loved to watch baseball and of course his beloved Cowboys. He also enjoyed church on Sunday, umping softball games, an occasional trip to the casino, country music, and two-stepping back in the day. But what he loved most of all was his family. He loved and adored his wife Anita and helped raise her boys as his own. When Alzheimers began to take her he stood by her and cared for her at home for as long as he could. Together they created a legacy of love and support to their children and grandchildren. He is dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

Don served his country faithfully in the United States Army as a Medical Corpsman in the Vietnam War and Military Honors will be rendered at the Graveside in Honor of his service. He received the Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal and National Defense Service Medal during his service.

Don and I went to school together. He had such a great sense of humor and was a great friend. He will be sorely missed. My prayers and condolences are sent to Anita and the family in your loss.

Mr. Smotherman made such an impact on me growing up at Lochwood! He always laughed and joked around, especially with (Grandpa) Gordon Hill! Chaz and I both have very fond memories of him and he will be truly missed. Although, I'm sure he's not missing us right now because he is busy worshipping his Savior!
