Lawrence “Larry” Wayne Smith died June 12th, 2017, at the age of 70 and was a resident of Canton, Georgia since 1995. Larry was born August 24, 1946 to Dozier and Martha Smith in Macon, GA. He attended Lanier Senior High School in Macon where he ran track and was a member of fraternity LTB. He retired from Bellsouth after 46 years.

Larry loved the outdoors and frequently camped in the North Georgia Mountains with his wife, Terri. The majority of his time was spent at his church where he was surrounded by many loving and caring friends. Much of his spare time was spent working in his garden and tinkering with any computer or gadget he could get his hands on. He enjoyed going to the firing range and talking politics to anyone who would listen. He was a true believer in God, guns and liberty.

A devoted husband and father, Larry is survived by his wife, Terri Smith of Canton, Ga., his son Colin Smith and Nora Wilson of Berkeley, Ca., his step-daughter Katherine Pepper and husband Adam Pepper of Dallas, Ga., his two grand-children, Cora Pepper (age 5) and Colton Pepper (age 2), his step-son Royce Munn and wife Lindsay Pepper of Atlantic Beach, Fl., and his sister Joan Sheldon and husband Mike Sheldon of Marietta, Ga.

The memorial service will be held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Canton, GA on June 17, 2017 at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Emory Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at http://alzheimers.emory.edu/support/donate-now.html.

To all of Larry's family, I was sadden to heard the new of Larry's passing tonight from a coworker of both Larry and my late husband, Ron Gary, Larry and Ron shared work together along with much laughter. Larry had a big personality and was always ready to help out any way he could. I know each of your hearts are broken and I send my regrets of your loss. Praying that God will continue to comfort each of you as you go through your grief. Larry will be truly missed. Reply to this comment
