Daniel Otterbein Smith Jr. went peacefully home to His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ August 2, 2018.
Born February 9, 1923 in Lackawanna, Pennsylvania he was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Daniel served during the Second World War in the US Coast Guard.
Afterwards he pursued an engineering career with the General Electric Company. He was an avid sailor and throughout his life was involved with the Boy Scouts of America." He was also a ham radio operator (K4UQN)."
Mr Dany, as he was lovingly called by his friends in Waxhaw, was preceded in death by his wife Audrey (2012) and their youngest daughter Sandra (2010), his parents and his two younger brothers Charles and Leonard.
He is survived by his oldest daughter Cheri (Sister Gordia, member of the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary, Canadian Branch). I would like to especially thank Karen Jackson and her extended family in Waxhaw for their loving care of my father over these last six years.
A service and interment will take place at a later date in Atlanta.
Memorials may be made to the charity of your choice.
Holland Funeral Service & Crematory is serving the family.
