He was preceded in death by his father, brother Eric L. Smith, his maternal grandparents and paternal grandparents.
He leaves to cherish his memories his wife of 24 years Sandra Ann Smith, his four sons, Alex Mathis (Kimly), Spontane Jackson, Elijah Jackson all of Clinton, NC and Devin Smith of Durham, NC. His mother Geraldine Burgess and sister Regina Brehon both of Mount Olive, NC. A mother in law Evangelist Lula Lee. Four aunts and three uncles. Five grandchildren who loved and adored their Papa. A host of nieces and nephews who looked to him as a father figure. Several special family members and friends.
