Mr. Smith rose to sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, serving during the Berlin Airlifts and the Korean War. He was stationed in Ft. Sam Houston for 4 years. Following the military, he worked for a major insurance company, as manager, for most of the 18 years. He then owned his own tax accountant and bookkeeping service for 50 years. He loved his wife and his family with a passion. He helped people in need. He loved woodworking, fishing and spending time with his family. But of all the things he did, the most important was his faith in Jesus Christ. We do not grieve as others who have no hope.
