Pensacola - Hubert E. Smith, 78 years of age, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at Southern Oaks.

Hubert was born February 20, 1940 to the late Eason and Leasie Smith.

Hubert professed his life to Christ and soon after married Paula D. Smith (July, 1993). The family initially lived in Pensacola, FL and later moved to Molino, FL. He was a member of Pine Summit Baptist Church. He loved doing the Lord's work and he cherished and praised him. He always enjoyed helping others.

Hubert loved to read his bible, praying for and with others, spending time with family and friends, and always wore a smile. He was a loving and caring person, devoted husband, father and friend, always thinking of others first. Of course, as we all know, he had a deep passion for cars. Whether it be his race cars or his long time business of selling them at "Hubert Smith Quality Cars".

Hubert leaves behind to cherish his loving memory his wife Paula; children, Cindy (Bill) Henderson and Michael Smith; his step-children, Sherry Sopina, Karla (Ben) Bowman, Doug (Renee) Miller; grandchildren, Garrett (Pam) and Zachary (Kendall) Henderson, Nikki Smith, Shelby and Abbi Sopina, Tripp and Brooke Bowman, Dawson and Avery Miller and Jase Peaden; great-grandchildren, Wheeler and Campbell Henderson and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. This includes a special mention of Doug Patterson, his racing partner for many years and true friend for over 50 years.
