Billy Smith

March 1, 1940 — March 29, 2020

Billy Curtis Smith, 80, of Elizabethtown passed away on Sunday, March 29, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence Lee Smith and Letha Victoria Smith, his loving wife of 51 years, Anne Davis Smith, one brother, Howard Smith and four sisters: Esteline Allbright, Estelle Johnson, Letha “Tootsie” Matheson and Elmarie Davenport. Billy leaves behind one son, Ashley Smith of Gastonia; one daughter, Kelly Smith Humphrey (Jack) of Wilmington; one brother, Jimmy Smith (Nancy) of Bladenboro; one sister, Esther Oliver (Walt) of Bladenboro; numerous nieces and nephews and two special caretakers, Wilma Dale Storms and Elfriede Hester.

Bill loved his family and his church. He worked for Winn-Dixie for 45 years. His favorite past times were watching sports and cowboy movies, along with listening to old Country music. One of his favorite expressions on the golf course was “I’d rather be lucky than good” and with 8 lifetime holes in one, he was both. An avid birdwatcher, B.C. loved building bluebird houses and placed one on every hole at the former Carolina Sands Golf Course.

A private graveside service will be held on Thursday, April 2, 2020 with Rev. Howard Allbright officiating. A public memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Wesley’s Chapel, 2409 Peanut Rd, Elizabethtown, NC 28337.
