Obituary for STEWART LEON SMITH, SR.

Stewart Leon Smith, Sr. was born January 31, 1959, in Prince Frederick, MD, to the late James 'Jook' Smith and Dorothy Willa Smith. He was the sixth of ten children. Stewart was a lifetime resident of Calvert County. He attended Calvert County Public Schools, graduating from Northern High School in 1977. Stewart began working for the Prince George's County School Board in March 1977. He held various positions throughout his career and retired after nearly 34 years of service, as a Mechanic Night Foreman in January 2011. Stewart married the love of his life, Charlayne Stepney on January 31, 1981. From this union they were blessed with two children, the apple of his eye, his daughter Joy, and his pride and joy, his son Stewart, nicknamed Junior or Little Stewart. Stewart enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. His main pleasures were crabbing, fishing, gardening and hunting. The evidence of his hunting is displayed above his fireplace. Stewart enjoyed providing the catch of the day for his mother and sisters. However, his first love was the field of mechanics and he was able to build his own garage in his backyard, in the hopes of operating his own business during retirement. He was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and Boston Celtics. Stewart was a member of Coopers United Methodist Church and attended regularly until his health no longer allowed. Stewart peacefully departed this life on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, after a courageous battle with leukemia. Stewart leaves to cherish his memories, his wife of 32 years, Charlayne; daughter, Joy Mott (Tony); son, Stewart Leon Smith, Jr.; mother, Dorothy; sisters, Kathy, Kim, Kay; brothers, Marvin (Phyllis),Russell (Francina), Lester, Steve, Horace and Jeffrey; his second mother, Lillian Adams; a truly devoted cousin Tina Brown, as well as his great aunt Mary Pumphrey (Methusaleh); aunts Ella Colbert, Mary 'Tootsie' Parker, Matilda 'Tillie' Fletcher, Gertrude 'Isabella' Estep, Alice Garrett (Edward), Alfreda Smith, Delores Smith; mother-in-law, Frances Stepney; aunts-in-law, Maggie Stepney, Patsy Pope (Pete), Agnes Taylor; uncles-in-law, Spencer Stepney (Arnelia) and John Henry Taylor; sisters-in-law, Rita, Kimberly; brothers-in-law Maxie, Dale (Marvis), Gerald, Martin (Eugenia), and Tony (Stacey) and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and former coworkers. Stewart will be truly missed by his family as well as special friends, Gilbert Chaney, John Cole, Sr., Terry Harris, Jason 'Jay Bird' Husk, Larry Spriggs, Sr., Michael Spriggs, Sr., and Mike Sweeney. He was preceded in death by his father, James 'Jook' Smith, two very special nephews, Lester Eric Lamont Smith and James Russell Smith III, and sister-in-law Patricia Rebecca Smith.
