He was born in Memphis, Tennessee on November 4th, 1949 to Walter and Clara Smith. He was retired from CCL Label, the United States Army and the Tennessee State Guard.

Johnny will forever be remembered as a loving and much loved husband, father, “Pop”, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, friend and soldier. He will live forever in the hearts of his wife of fifty-one years, Rebecca Trenthem Smith, his son Michael Smith, his daughter Lindsey Smith and his grandchildren Eva and Johnny. He also leaves behind his brother, Michael Smith (Tima). He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, William Smith, and his sister Lynda Smith Roffman. The family wishes to honor and thank the wonderful staff at Methodist Hospice Residence for their compassion and tender service to Johnny during his final moments. They are truly angels here on earth.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to Memphis Union Mission. THE ANCHOR HOLDS 2 Corinthians 4:14-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
