Clendon (CJ) Smith passed away peacefully into his heavenly home June 8, 2018 after a 5 month battle with cancer.

He was born in Lufkin, TX on February 3, 1949 to Simon & Laverne Smith. He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Lynn and sister Rhonda.

CJ was a 1967 graduate of Seagoville High School. He went to work right out of high school for Vought as an Aerospace Engineer and officially retired in July 2017. His hobbies included playing dominoes at the Dusty Horn with his buddies, fishing at the lake house, buying out Walmart clearance aisle and going to Choctaw when he could.

Left with cherished memories are his wife of 32 years, Judy of Crandall, brother Vernon and Sandra Smith of Seagoville, daughters, Jennifer and Russell Sikes of Scurry, Brandy and Jason Myre of Forney, and Shanon Murchison of Seagoville, 4 grandchildren (Brittney, Breigh, Brittany & Zach), 1 great grandchild (Emberlynn June) on the way, his beloved maltese, Missy & 4 granddogs as well as numerous other family and friends.

We want to extend our gratitude to Texas Oncology and Silverado Hospice for showing great care and compassion during his battle.

Jennifer and family,

There is no way I can ever fully express the pain your are enduring, in deepest Sympathy I offer my condolences.

Someday, not now, and perhaps not for a long while... you will remember all you shared with less pain and more joy. But for now, just know that God walks beside you every moment of every day to comfort you.

May the healing gift of time, and the timeless love of God carry you and yours gently through your loss!

Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. Mathew 5:4

Clendon and I were friends since 3rd grade and continue through high school. We worked together at the grocery store and hung out after work.
Clendon was a good friend in our growing up days on Judy Lane. It was always good to see him at the school reunions. He will be missed.

God Bless you All.

To the family of Clendon. Growing up on Judy Lane in the 50's & 60's was the best. Clendon was older but I remember thinking how lucky Rhonda was to have Brothers! Sweet childhood memories. Prayers for Clendon's Family and to Vernon Dale and his Family. Hugs..
