Norman Smith

November 17, 1937 — July 3, 2023

Surrounded by those he loved and loved him, Norman Ross Smith departed this earthly world on 3 July 2023 to be at peace with Jesus.
He was born 17 November 1937, in Stewart County, TN to James Reynolds and Johnnie Mirl (Shrader) Smith.
Celebration of Life will be held 11 a.m. Friday, July 7, 2023 at McReynolds-Nave & Larson Funeral Home.
The family will receive friends on Friday from 9 a.m. until the hour of service at the funeral home. He will be laid to rest at Greenwood Cemetery.
He was married on 1 March 1957 to Mildred LaVerne Bowles until her death on 31 March 2000, for 44 years. One of Norman's legacies is the family who survive him through this union. Their daughter, Norma LaVerne (Smith) and her husband, Mark Anthony Davis and their children Lindsay Marie Davis (died 9 Feb 1984), Richard Mark Davis, Alison Marie (Davis) and her husband William David McKelvey, Clark Anthony Davis and his wife, Megan Elizabeth Stone, Claire Marie (Davis) and her husband Dwight Eugene Burney, Jr. Their son, Anthony Ross Smith and his wife, Anita Carol Crosby and their children Nathaniel Ryan Smith and his wife Annie Elizabeth Nelson, Jessica Erin (Smith) and her husband Michael Alan Atmore.
Their son, Roger Lyle Smith (died 6 October 2016) and his wife, Marcelle Rae Williams, and their children Warren Douglas Smith and Mason Alexander Smith.
Great grandchildren are Ivy Elise McKelvey, Clive William McKelvey, and Autumn Elise McKelvey, Addison Micaelah Atmore and Alexis Erianna Atmore.

Norman and Jinny Myra (Jackson) were married on 1 January 2001, for over 22 years.

Norman was the Production Manager for the Trane Company, retiring after 30 years of service. During this time, he owned multiple properties and was co-owner of Auction World. After his retirement, he developed, built, and operated Cherry Station, a self-storage facility with an affiliated antique shop for 27 years where he was well known for his knowledge and expertise in antiques.

Norman was a beautiful, kind, and gentle man. His loving spirit was shown in his kindnesses to those who were poor and disabled; he had a special understanding for the less fortunate. But most of all, he had an insurmountable love and devotion for his family. Never separated from his wife of over 22 years, he was a treasured and devoted husband and father.
