Fred S. Smith

July 24, 1938 ‒ January 24, 2008

Mount Gilead, Ohio

Fred S. Smith, 69, of Mount Gilead died unexpectedly early Thursday morning, January 24, 2008, at the Morrow County Hospital.

He was born in Morrow County on July 24, 1938, the son of the late Cecil “C.E” and Aletha (Reinhardt) Smith.

A Morrow county resident his entire life, Fred worked for Gremans-Flexibus in Delaware, where he painted Greyhound buses.

Fred was very easy going and acted as though he never had a care in the world.

Fred use to have a place out on 95 where he would tinker outdoors, or spend time doing yard work.

Whether he was playing a game of horseshoes or euchre, he enjoyed time spent with his family and friends.

He will be missed by his children Sharon Gullett of Mount Gilead, Pamela Smith of Cardington, Marlie (William) Somerlot of Mount Gilead, and Monty (Dawn Aldridge) Smith of Mount Gilead; 9 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; and a brother Charles (Lonnie) Smith of Washington State.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a brother Robert Hawkins.

Graveside services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday January 28, 2008 at Rivercliff Cemetery with Pastor Joe Graham officiating.

Memorial contributions if desired may be made to the family, C/o Snyder Funeral Home, 76 South Main Street, Mount Gilead, Ohio, 43338
