Clayton Alvis “Tommy” Smith went home to be with the Lord on Monday, December 19, 2022.

Tommy was 78 years old and a faithful member of The Church of the Born.  Tommy was a man of many traits; he worked hard as a roofing man, roofing lots of peoples’ homes.  He also did carpentry work and was always willing to help anyone with a smile on his face.  As a true Christian he shined his light and talked to people and told them of God’s love.  He showed forth charity in his Christian walk and enjoyed speaking of his precious Savior.  Tommy loved to go hunting and fishing.  He really enjoyed taking his grandkids hunting, either hunting for deer, coons, squirrels, turkeys, or rabbits; he loved doing that and it brought him great joy; passing along his hunting skills to his children and grandchildren.  Tommy was a very hard worker, working each day to provide for his family.
Tommy is preceded in death by his precious parents, Johnny “Lawrence” Smith and Virgie Viola Smith, whom he loved dearly.  His loving wife of over 40 years, Phyllis Smith, whom he loved and cherished dearly.  Brothers Wilburn Smith, Freddie Lee Smith and Archie Harold Smith.  Sisters Ophelia Turner and Barbara Ann Peace, whom he loved with all his heart.
