Lawrence Smith Obituary
Lawrence R. Smith passed away on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010, at his home. He was a longtime resident of Alamogordo.
Larry was born on Aug. 20, 1945, in Dubois, Pa., to Guy and Evelyn Smith. He married his beloved wife Carol Orwell on Oct. 8, 1966, in Ipswich, Suffolk, England. Larry served proudly in the United States Air Force and retired as a master sergeant in 1983 after 20 years of service, having served in the Vietnam War. He then went on to work for Army Air until his retirement in 2003.
Larry was an avid hunter and spent many years enjoying the sport with his dear friends and family. He always had a funny story to tell and a special way of telling those stories. He will be missed by his family and his many friends that he made through the years.
Larry is survived by his wife of 44 years, Carol Smith, of the family home; his daughter Paula Polage, of Alamogordo; his son Marc Smith and his wife, Maria, of Herndon, Va.; four grandchildren, Ian Polage and his wife, Ashley, of San Diego, Cameron Polage, of Alamogordo, and Valerie and Alexia Smith, of Herndon. He is also survived by his mother, Evelyn Comer; his sisters Debbie, Lynne, Tracy and Juanita and his brother Dan. Special mention should go to his brother-in-law, Bryan Orwell, of Kent, England. His family would like to give special mention to his hunting companion and friend, Clay Lincoln and his ex-son-in-law, Randy Polage, both of whom were very dear to him.
Memorial services will be conducted at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, 2010, at Alamogordo Funeral Home with his special friend Steve Ellison officiating. Military Honors will be provided by the Holloman Air Force Base Steel Talons Honor Guard.
The Smith family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements. Cremation will take place at PCS.
