Eugene Smith Obituary
Mr. Eugene W. Smith, 87, of Frederick, died January 7, 2015.

He was the husband of the late Cynthia O. Smith, and the son of the late Lottie Eleanor Swope and Keller Theodore Smith. He was born October 20, 1927 in Washington County, Maryland. There were three brothers and sisters, two of whom survive: LuCee E. Whitter of Frederick and Melvin Smith of Hagerstown. He was preceded in death by his sister, Joann Marie.

Eugene proudly served his country in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955, stationed overseas in Germany, Austria, and Belgium.

He worked for nearly 60 years for Clouse Company, Frederick, previously Earl W.H. Mercer and Son, Inc., as an 18-wheeler milk truck hauler from Maryland and Pennsylvania dairy farms to local creameries. He was extremely proud of his loyalty to his employer, co-workers, and his attendance record over those many years.

Eugene was a member of South End Baptist Church, Frederick, and fondly remembered the years of duckpin bowling he participated in with fellow team members from the church.

Eugene is survived by two sons, Jeffrey W. and Richard E. Smith of Frederick.

There will be no visitation and services will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Frederick County Animal Control (FCAC) by phone at 301-600-1546 or online at their website http://frederickcountymd.gov/15/Animal-Control .
