Don L. Smith

Freer - Don L. Smith, 69 years of age, went to be with the Lord on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021 in Spohn Hospital in Alice, Texas after a sudden illness. He was born in Freer, Texas on January 2, 1952 to his parents, Bill and Betty Smith. He was a 1970 graduate of Freer High School and was an active member and custodian of the First Baptist Church of Freer for many years.

His hobbies included collecting car models, gardening, and socializing with friends and will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.
