Husband of Mary Nell (Rumsey), son of Leonard Franklin & Lela Marie (Roach) Smith. He learned electronics while serving in the Navy during WWII, and used it as a profession. During his time in the Navy, they sent him to college at Purdue University in Indiana. At one time he was an electronics teacher in Okmulgee, OK. He retired from the FAA in Oklahoma City. He loved to fish and taught all of his grandkids how. He and his family moved all over, mostly in Oklahoma (they lived in Kentucky in the late 1940's). When he discovered he had cancer, he and his wife moved back to Watonga.

For my Grampa, who taught me how to fish & get the chaff out of wheat. I can still hear your laugh and calling me "Tyke".
