Davy spent his young years surrounded by friends and family. He loved to play baseball and football. There were plenty of neighbors and vacant lots in the neighborhood that were available to have an impromptu game.
Following high school, Davy Smith joined the United States Navy. Later, he worked in construction where he was an outstanding painter. He had a very good work ethic and always did his best! Davy also enjoyed making specialty knives. He had great designs and made all of the components by hand.
Davy was a good guy! Someone you could count on if you needed something. He was very well liked by everyone. He had a dry wit and was very knowledgeable on nearly any subject. He was never proud or boastful. He enjoyed helping others. He was a care giver in his family. He took everything in stride. Never complaining, working thru any problems or health issues. Davy always looked for the bright side of things – he did not dwell on the negatives.
