Born February 12, 1925 in Spartanburg, SC, Mr. Smith was a son of the late Edward Mason Smith and Carrie Sue West. He was a World War II Army veteran, having served in the 81st Wildcat division in the Pacific theater. Mr. Smith was a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1950, and subsequently pursued a fulfilling career in accounting being employed by Dun & Bradstreet, Charlotte NC; Jackson’s CPA firm, Clover SC; Wilkerson Oil Company, Rock Hill SC; Consolidated Engravers, Charlotte NC; and ultimately retiring from Zenith Engraving, Chester SC. Mr. Smith was the consummate husband, father, and grandfather; often exclaiming that one of his main purposes in life was to be the best grandfather he could be to his grands. Even though family was his first love, horses had a special place in his heart as Mr. Smith was an avid horseman. In addition to riding and taking care of a small horse farm, he also loved gardening, golf, and square dancing. He was a member of Purity Presbyterian Church, and often served as church treasurer, auditor, deacon, and Sunday school teacher throughout his church life. He is survived by two sons, Dan A Smith (Cindy) of Odessa, FL and David B Smith of Clover, SC; two step-daughters, Jennie Rush (Bob) of Columbia, SC and Elizabeth Alba (Tim) of Charlotte, NC; one step-son, Lex Weston Wilkes Jr., of Leeds, SC; six grandchildren, Lauren Lopez (Julio) and Emily Smith, Scott Rush, Brittany Rush, Rebecca Alba, Caroline Alba; one great grandson, Mason Lopez; one brother, Sidney Smith (Lynn) of Charlotte NC; and one niece and nephew. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Marian Baker Smith, married for twenty six years; and his second wife, Elizabeth Wilkes Smith, married for thirty four years.
