Mr. Allen Arthur Smith, age 63 of Dallas died Sunday, October 31, 2004. Born in Oglethorpe County he was the son of the late Frank Odell and Ruby Thomas Smith. He was a plant service worker for Lockheed. He was a wonderful man. To his friends he was the quiet one with the dry sense of humor. He was always laughing at their jokes. To his family he was devoted. He worked hard to provide for his family. His children can say that they surely had the best father in the world. To his wife, Mary, Allen was beloved. They shared 45 years of marriage, marrying while they were so young. They set an example by the way they cared for each other. Allen loved hunting with his brothers and sons. He cherished his grandchildren, going fishing, watching cartoons, or cutting up on the porch, these were his favorite things to do with them. He just enjoyed being with family. It was simply a privilege and a blessing to know Alolen.
