OBITUARY

Archie Herbert SMITH III

January 23, 1943October 11, 2020

He came ‘Kicking’ into this world on January 23, 1943 - announced at birth as “the 1943 Smith Baby Boy Model 1 by the Smith Production Company”. Archie Herbert Smith III, known as “Kicker” by his father, uncle and cousins, was born in Birmingham, AL by the late Edith Elizabeth Knight and Archie Herbert Smith Jr. He grew up in Birmingham raised by his Grandmother, Nathalie Smith, known to all as Grandmother Smith.

He was an avid tennis player growing up, and loved sports of all kinds, especially baseball. His pride and joy was his 5 sons, Archie Herbert Smith IV, Thomas Eugene Smith, Christopher Scott Smith, Timothy William Smith, and Nicholas Andrew Smith, and spent his free time watching them in all of their endeavours.

He leaves us as a beloved husband, father, and friend. Known by all for his vast generosity and concerns for others. We all laugh thinking about how inquisitive he was, and how he asked so many questions. On the humorous side, he was an aficionado of all things southern barbeque, and a favorite was Ollies’s of Birmingham.

He is survived by his wife, Reta Smith, and his 5 sons, and their families and cousins.

May he rest in peace, and know he is dearly loved by those left behind.

“Big Arch” always made me feel like part of the family and there was always a seat at the dinner table for me whenever I would “pop” in. Thank you for making me feel like one of your own!!
