Arthur “Pampa” Smith peacefully went to Heaven after a short battle with cancer on March 11. He was 88 years old.
He is survived by his brothers, Ugene Smith of Ohio, Jack Smith of Wisconsin, and Lawrence Smith of Alabama. Also by his granddaughters, Sandi Sill of Oakdale and Richelle Boyd of Los Angeles,
great grandchildren, Nick, Kylie, Ryder, and “little” Smith, and great, great grandson Carson.
To our families universe he was the sun.
He served his country and unwaveringly loved his family. He was truly one of the good guys.
We will forever miss your voice, your laugh, and that twinkle in your eye.
Thank you for taking such good care of us. It’s your turn to relax, so enjoy a martini and give Nana a big hug for us.
We will see you again someday. You will be forever missed and always in our hearts.
Graveside service will be Thursday, March 19th at 2pm at Oaklawn Memorial Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Community Hospice Inc. Hospiceheart.org
