On May 9, 2018, Robert Dean Smith peacefully passed away surrounded by his family.
He was 87 years young and born in Pasadena, Calif. to the late Marion Coulter and Allen Clyde Smith. He was married to the love of his life, Nancy B. Smith for 63 years until her death in 2014.
Bobby graduated with a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from NC State in 1954. He served for 20 years in the U.S. Air Force as a pilot and pilot trainer for the KC 135. He served two tours in the Vietnam War. Upon his honorable retirement in 1974, he made his home in Independence.
In addition to his parents, he was pre-deceased in death by his wife, Nancy B. Smith; his sister, Ardith Hansen; and his brothers, Lloyd and Allen Smith.  
He is survived by his four children: Cynthia Westmoreland (Bobby) of Warner Robins, Ga.; Jennifer B. Smith of Fernandina Beach, Fla.; Micheal D. Smith of Radford; and Amanda von Grosse (Kimbray) of Littleton, Colo.; as well as eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
The family would like to thank all the caregivers that took such wonderful care of our father as well as the loyal friends that were here to support him. A private military graveside memorial will be held at a later date.
