ELMER SMITH, 69 of South Pittsburg, TN, passed away on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Elmer had a passion for the mountains. He was self-employed and very proud of the stonework he did. From hauling the rock out of the mountain, cutting it down and laying the stone. The work he did was beautiful, and he always took great pride in that. He loved being outdoors, fishing on the Little Sequatchie River. His passion for the outdoors led him to meeting his soul mate at Nick-A-Jack cave, Kathy. He then married her and was devoted to her for 46 years. He loved his family, especially his grandchildren. He lived each day to the fullest and took life one day at a time.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Elvia York; brothers, Wilburn Smith, Donnie Smith, and Ronnie Smith; sisters, Betty Jones, Brenda Hastings, and Wiladene Cargyle.
Elmer leaves his memories to his wife of forty-six years, Kathy Ellis Smith; son, Steven (Christina) Smith; daughter, Crystal Smith; brother, Milton Smith; sisters, Darlene Walden, and Debbie Chadwick; grandchildren, Bailey Coppinger, Zach Smith, Austin Smith, Lacey Smith, Taylor Smith, Tallon Smith, Leah Smith, Vivian Smith, and Amiya Smith; great grandchildren, JaKaylie Sims, Mason Sims, and Kensley Smith.
