Obituary for WILLIAM T. SMITH, JR.

William Thomas Smith, Jr., affectionately known as (Son, Pops, Sonny, Pop-Pop, Daddy, Grand Daddy, Grand Pop and Grandpa) departed this life on Saturday April 6, 2013 at his home in Huntingtown, Maryland. William was born September 29, 1917, to the late William Thomas Smith, Sr. and Gertrude Isabella Baden Smith in Bristol, Maryland. He attended Anne Arundel County Public Schools. William was united in marriage to Alfreda Irene Carter on October 20, 1942, and out of this union came ten children. During the early days of their 70 years of marriage he worked and played baseball for a number of teams including the Owings Eagles. Son was scouted for major league baseball but instead he chose to work and provide for his family. He instilled those same values into his grandchildren and great grandchildren, many of which carry on this tradition and love of baseball today. William’s strong work ethic began as a youngster when he worked in a country store. He later worked as a truck driver and as a school bus driver where he met his future wife Alfreda. Son worked for Kay Jewelers’ Construction Company for many years and from there began a career with the Prince George’s County School Board until his retirement in 1986. He was an excellent farmer and one of his favorite past times was gardening. Every year he planted a garden that he shared with family and friends, and was meticulous about its upkeep. Pop-Pop thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his 21 grandchildren, and they all cherished their time with him. He also loved to play the lottery! Son leaves to cherish his memories; his devoted wife, Alfreda, six sons: Calvin, Alfred (Helen); Carl (Terisita); Wendell (Barbara); Roy, and Maurice (Patty); four daughters: Joan, Peggy (Donald); Darlene (Michael); and Katherleen (Kerry). Five sisters: Ella, Mary, Matilda, Isabella, and Alice (Edward); 21 grandchildren, 31 great grandchildren, one great, great granddaughter and a host of nieces and nephews and many, many relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents William Sr. and Isabella Smith; sisters, Ellen Jones and Edna Mackall; brothers, James, Eugene, Richard and Calvert Smith; son-in-law, Robert Carter Sr. and great grandsons, Deonta Smith and Jayshawn Ford.
