Mr. Ivey A. Smith, Jr., 81, of Acworth, Georgia, passed away on February 24, 2020, with his loving family at his side.
Mr. Smith was formerly of the High Point Community near Albertville. He graduated from Albertville High School in 1956 and moved to Acworth, Georgia, in 1963.
He was a man of the highest integrity. Those who knew him knew that he would drop anything and offer help on a second's notice. The times he was there to help friends and family are too numerous to count. He was a kind, gentle, caring man who never spoke ill of anyone. He was very mechanically inclined and could fix anything.
His hobbies included camping, hunting and NASCAR. He was an avid water skier and an Alabama fan but loved nothing more than spending time with his wife and family.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sisters, Jeanette Gardner and Peggy Smith.
Survivors include his loving wife of 61 years, Linda; daughters, Lisa (Kenny) Baker and Gina (David) Auld; grandchildrenm Brad and Corey Baker and Hunter and Hannah Auld.
The funeral was at Elizabeth Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia. Lakeside Funeral Home of Woodstock, Georgia was honored to help the family with the arrangements.
