G. A. "Mickey" Smith, Jr., 69, left for his heavenly home Saturday, March 16, 2013 at Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland after a difficult struggle with Alzheimer's disease.

Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
Mickey was a member of Wynndale Baptist Church and served many years at Cleary Baptist Church as a deacon and choir member. He enjoyed going on mission trips and serving others using the talents God gave him. He lived everyday as a gift and worked to make the most of everyday.
He developed many special friendships through his 40 years of service to the USDA. He enjoyed the outdoors and any activity that involved his grandson.
Mickey was preceded in death by his parents.
Mickey leaves behind a loving family that will miss him dearly including his wife Margaret; his son and daughter-in-law Chad and Shelly; his grandson, Jordan Smith; his sister, Joyce (Jim) Williams; and his brother, Mark (Janet) Smith; and a host of extended family. We love you Mickey. "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."
