CHARLES SMITH Obituary

Charles was born on April 2, 1953, in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. He was the fourth of eight children born to Fred and Verna Smith. Charles joined the United States Army in 1973 and was stationed in Germany. He brought his children back to the states when his first wife (Mary) passed away. Charlie lived in California and Mississippi before moving to Texas in 1999 after his second wife (Lorraine) passed away.

Charlie lived in Floresville from 1999 to 2020 helping his sister and brother-in-law with their ranch. In 2015, he married Lisa and although he continued to help on the ranch, he resided in San Antonio.

Charlie was preceded in death by his father Fred Levi Smith, Jr. and his mother Verna Van Pelt Smith Hood and stepfather Billy Hood, his brothers Fred Wayne, Horace and James Hagan; and sister Tina Sutphin.

Charlie is survived by his children Timothy Smith and Charles Edward Smith, Jr. His stepdaughters Resa Deshaun Velasques, Lynnitha Lashaun Velasques and Vonda Vashaun Velasques; his sisters Nancy Carnes, Barbara Leonhardt and Alice Navarro; sisters-in-law Sandra Williams and Nina Bryant and mother-in-law Dorothy Bowen. Charles has several grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and friends that loved Charles.

Charlie was a "Good Ole Boy" in every sense of the word. He was even tempered, and ready to help if asked. He loved his family and friends. He was always in low gear and low energy with a smile on his face. Charlie will be missed by all of those who loved him with fond memories and forever in our hearts.
