Lamar Smith age 93 of South McDonough Rd. Griffin, died January 29th, from breathing complications following a fall at home resulting in a fractured femur that led to his being bedridden.
Lamar was preceded in death by his mother, Ruth Buntyn Smith and his dad, Luther Smith; brothers, Danny Smith, Larry Smith, Lavern Smith, Kenneth Jones and Bill Smith.
Lamar is survived by his loving wife of 72 years, Jeanette Green Smith and his sister, Edna Jones; sisters-in-law, Anne Smith and Jean Smith, along with 3 sons, 4 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren and many cherished extended family members.
Lamar loved his times spent at Lake Sinclair, as well as raising cows. He retired from his first career as a truck driver, then from his second one, the family business, S&S Lawnmower Service.
He loved participating in and hosting family get togethers and reunions. He was a talented mechanic, a fascination tinkerer, enjoyed making muscadine wines and loved the family Labrador retrievers. He enjoyed his years as a Boy Scout Leader with Troop 10, enjoyed bluegrass music, and cherished opportunities to instruct kid, especially in things mechanical.
