Robert "Bob" Smith

Obituary of Robert "Bob" Smith

Robert H. Smith (Bob) born October 4, 1939 in Bear Lake,  PA to Elton and Ruth Smith. He had 3 sisters Shirley Dixon, Charlotte Stocton and Jan Lily. 

 

Bob learned to drive at an early age,  which fueled his love of trucks,  cars,  and speed.  He was a truck driver for the majority of his life and even drove race cars in his youth which led to his passion for Nascar. Bob's love for his country was evident, his personality was big and he was always ready with a story or a joke. Love poured from his heart and touched everyone he met.  He did all he could to help his family and community of Deland,  FL, his home since 1972. He mowed lawns for practically everybody in town.  He was also an active member of the Nazarene Church and was planning to become a youth mentor. 

 

Bob met the love of his life,  Anne Ballew Smith, and they married in September of 1957. Together, they started what would be their most important accomplishment and legacy... their loving family. 

He was our foundation,  our ROCK and he has always been there for us. 

 

           We love you "this much"!
