Ronald Allen Smith, 58, died of lung cancer on May 8, 2021. A native of Savannah, he was a jack of several trades, with much of his life spent in the HVAC and hardwood flooring business, installing and repairing. Many knew him by the nickname he gave himself: RAS, spoken as if it had a series of "z"s on the end. He was always up for a good joke, a cold beer, and a rousing action movie, with a ready smile for all. He was a man who experienced life on his own terms, as all who knew him will attest. The way to best honor his memory is to raise a toast with your favorite beverage; either sweet tea or beer would please him greatly. He is survived by his sister, Faustina Smith; his brother, Harvey (Mary) Smith; his brother, Anthony (Laura) Smith; his daughter, Christina Smith, and two grandchildren, Miyah and Chloe; and his son, Michael Smith, and two grandchildren, Leila and Alyssa. His request to be cremated is being honored by Families First Funeral Care, with a private celebration of life.

Ronnie never failed to greet me with a smile, kind words and silly jokes. Whenever I would see him he always managed to brighten up my day.
I will truly miss you my friend.
Rest in peace
