Dennis Richard "Ritchie" Smith would like everyone to know his work here is done. He received a call, one that no one can refuse. This comes with a huge bonus, a reunion with family and friends he has not seen in a long time. His new mission has taken him to a wonderful place of happiness and peace where he can fish and tell his funny stories.
Preceded in death by his parents, Wilma and Dennis W. Smith and brother, Scott Smith.
Survived by his love, Charlesii; two daughters, Kimberly King and Amber (John) Hammond; six grandchildren, Eli, Rylee, Gracie, Gabby, Hayden and Harver; two sisters, Mona (Billy) Harrison and Nell “Necie” (John) Jacob; two brothers, Martin ”Marty” (Jennifer) Smith and Jason Smith; several nieces, nephews and friends to include close friends, Mar-Ru, Felix and Dewayne.
A special thank you to Gary and Dave for their great compassion and Mary with the assistance through FAMM.
