Obituary

Concord

James Edward Smith Sr. age 86, passed away at Tucker Hospice House on October 11, 2019. He was born in Concord August 6, 1933 to the late Titus Preston Smith and the late Bertie Elizabeth Melton Smith. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by three sisters and eight brothers, Pauline Baldwin, Ida Rymer, Jettie Slough, Henry, Ray, Clyde, Robert, Lewis, Gene, Larry and Harold Smith.

James leaves behind his wife of 57 years, Catherine Brooks Smith; daughter, Donna Smith Rogers; sons, Tony Ray Smith and James Edward Smith Jr; grandchildren, John Nathaniel Hinson, Mathew Bradly (Joni) Hinson, Eileen Catherine Smith, Kayla Oliva Smith, Grace Caylee Smith and Ethan James Smith; great grandchildren, Rachel Hinson, Isaac Hinson, Garrett Hinson, Jacob Hinson, Nickolas Hinson and Johnathan Hinson; numerous friends and neighbors.

James proudly served his country in the United Stated Navy. After returning from his military service he began working for Concord Telephone Company. After 40 years of service he retired in 1995. He enjoyed traveling, camping square dancing, boating and skiing.

James had a very rare blood type. He was asked to be on call to come to any emergency to donate blood so he could help save lives. He served his community by delivering meals to homebound people with Meals on Wheels. As a young boy he was a dedicated boy scout.

The family would especially like to thank Julie, Teresa, Eli who came to aid him so he could stay mobile and at home during his battle with dementia. The Tucker Hospice House nurses and doctors were so caring and compassionate, not only with James but with the family as well. They made sure the family was well taken care of. Our hearts go out to you for the job you did to help us get through this sad time in our lives. We Thank YOU Hospice workers.
