April 22, 1955 — February 28, 2021

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mildred Robinson Smith; his son, John Smith; his sister, Robin Smith; and his father-in-law, SgtMaj, Claudie G. Lott, USA, Ret.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 38 years, Jeanette Smith of Grovetown; father, William Smith of Brentwood, Maryland; three children, Nikki Grimes (Jay) Milledgeville, Erik Smith of Grovetown, and Clayton Smith of Demorest; three grandchildren and the lights of his life, Elin Grimes, John Lane Grimes, and Maddux Smith; mother-in-law, Kirsten Bennett (Raymond) of Kapolei, Hawaii; and many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family. Steve will also be greatly missed by his two canine companions, Macy and Beau.
