Arnold O. SMITH Sr. Obituary
POQUOSON - Arnold O. Smith Sr., went to be with his Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011, with family by his side.
He was a member of Poquoson Baptist Church and the Cornerstone Sunday School Class. Arnold retired in 2000 from Newport News Shipbuilding, following 30 years of employment. He enjoyed spending his leisurely time in his woodshop making lighthouses and clocks for his many friends and family to enjoy. Arnold's greatest joy was fishing, hunting, and spending time with his son and grandsons.
Arnold was preceded in death by his parents, Willie A. and Lottie W. Smith; three brothers and one sister.
He is survived by the love of his life, his wife, Jean Lewis Smith; a son, Arnie Smith and wife, Rhonda; grandsons, J. D. and Travis; and his extended loving family.
The family will receive friends from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson, immediately followed by a funeral service in the funeral home chapel by Pastor John Pouchot. Burial will follow at 1:30 p.m., at the Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery, Suffolk, with military honors.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Poquoson Baptist Building Fund, "In Loving Memory of Arnold", 283 Wythe Creek Road, Poquoson, VA 23662. Online condolences may be made to www.claytorrollins.com.
