We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Reed's Chapel Decaturville

Mr. Smith was a construction worker, a man of many trades and a member of Mt. Carmel Methodist Church. He was born in Memphis, TN and graduated from Riverside High School then attended a year of college at what was then, Memphis State University. He loved rock hunting, adventures on the river, swimming in the Tennessee river and riding his tractor. He loved his mama and brothers and was definitely a mama's boy. He loved his kids but he loved his grandkids more. He was always willing to help people and would give you the shirt off his back but could be very hard to handle if provoked. He loved to live every day like it was his last and truly enjoyed the small things in life.
