SMITH, George William "Billy", Sr., 74, of Doswell, Va., passed away July 14, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother; and son, G.W. Billy is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Carolyn M. Smith; sons, Stephen (Julie) of Louisa and Rodney (Elise) of Rockville; and daughter-in-law, Amy Smith; his nieces and nephew of North Carolina. His grandchildren, Cotey (Amber), Morgan, Madison, Jillian, Tessa, Stephen, Savana and William all held a special place in "Big Daddy's" heart. They will cherish memories of huntin' and fishin' with their Big Daddy. Special friends were Julie Mills, Amy Jones (Bobby) and Vanessa Wagner (David).

Billy - "Bigzie" (as he was known by his firefighter brothers) - retired from the City of Richmond Fire Department after 34 years of service. He was a member of the Ashland Masonic Lodge #168 AF&AM and Berea Baptist Church. Billy was a real "Car Guy" who loved building and restoring old cars and trucks. All services will be held at Berea Baptist Church, 15421 Pouncey Tract Rd., Rockville, Va. 23146 on July 24, 2021, beginning with a Masonic Rites service at 11 a.m., followed by a visitation and Celebration of Life Service from 12 to 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Berea Baptist Youth Ministry or American Cancer Society. A private interment will be held at a later date.

Deepest sympathies to Carolyn and family for loss of husband, father, grandfather, and friend. I remember Billy as being bigger than life, and with a heart twice that size. He lit up a room with his wit, humor, and laughter. May many wonderful memories bring you comfort and strength, and be a reminder of how much he loved you all.
