Obituary for David Joseph Smith

David Joseph Smith, Sr., 64, of Blair, Oklahoma passed away Tuesday, October 25th, 2011 at Jackson County Memorial Hospital. He was born December 21st, 1946 in Houma, Louisiana to Junius Charles and Irma Josephine (Malbrough) Smith.

He was a Jet Engine Mechanic in the United States Air Force and was stationed to Altus Air Force Base in 1965. On August 25, 1966, David and Linda Ware were married at the First Assembly Church in Altus. They made their home and raised their children in Blair, Oklahoma. David was currently employed with the Civil Service on Altus Air Force Base as a Jet Engine Mechanic. He was a member of St. Paul's Ministry.

David was a man of varied interests. He loved NASCAR and watched the races when possible. He was fascinated by tractors and was in the process of restoring a couple that he had found. He was a good handyman and seldom came upon anything he couldn't fix. He loved to sing and play the drums and was very good at both. David enjoyed taking his dog for early morning walks and enjoying the beginning of each day.

He was preceded in death by his father, Junius Charles Smith; his father-in-law, Buddy Ware; mother-in-law, Don Nell Ware Graves; and step-father-in-law, Wayne Graves.
