Bryan E. Smith
Bryan E. Smith, of Stockbridge, passed away Saturday, April 27, 2019, at the age of 47. If you knew Bryan, you knew he was one of a kind. He loved his family and one of his greatest joys was to be able to help others. He was loyal and generous to a fault. Called "Stick" by most of his friends, he was the workaholic who enjoyed life and doing for other people. He never missed a day of work in over 27 years and enjoyed the reputation of always arriving early and leaving late. Bryan enjoyed fishing and looked forward to the annual guys trip each summer. He always shared his fish with others but enjoyed catch and release as well. He was a man who enjoyed being out of doors where his spirit soared. To say he will be missed is an understatement. Bryan was preceded in death by his sister, Andrea Marie Smith; maternal grandparents, Ranson Kerr and Eunice (Reynolds) Orr; and paternal grandparents, Rupert G. and Winifred (Love) Smith.
Survivors include his parents, Billy and Jean Smith of Covington; brother and sister-in-law, C. Alan and Valerie O. Smith of Charleston, SC; niece, Hannah Catherine Smith; nephew, Zachary O'Brien Smith; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
A Funeral Service for Bryan will be held Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 11:00 A.M., at the Chapel of Caldwell & Cowan, 1215 Access Road, in Covington, with Rev. Bobbie Wrenn Banks officiating with interment following in Lawnwood Memorial Park, Covington. Flowers are accepted, or memorial donations may be made to Gum Creek Presbyterian Church, Attn: Building Fund, 2700 Gum Creek Road, Oxford, GA 30054.
