November 20, 1989 - February 17, 2017
Brian Allen Smith, 27, of El Dorado and formally of Crossett, entered in to eternal peace on Friday, February 17, 2017.
Brian was born on November 20, 1989 in Monroe, LA to Gina Boyer Smith Herndon of El Dorado and Ronnie Bee Smith of Crossett, AR. He attended Crossett High School, Abiding Faith and graduated South Ark in welding/pipe fitting. Brian was an avid hunter, fisherman and had a heart for music that he showed through his guitars and keyboard. His heart did not stop there. He was always there to help when called upon. He had unconditional love for all those he met. He loved children and they adored him. His fishing tales were like his Papaws, he could catch a minnow and by the time it reached the ice chest it was the size of Jonahs Whale. He loved the outdoors and could have lived before his time, totally off the land.
Preceding him in death was his Papaw, Darwin Bee “Dee” Smith; maternal great grandfather, Howard Taft Burk, Sr.
Brian is survived by his parents; his brother, Bradley Bee Smith of El Dorado; one sister, Ashley Izora Smith of Milo, AR; grandmothers, Barbara Freeland (maternal) and Norma Smith (paternal); one aunt; Donna Smith Vinson (Steven Dale) of Pineville, AR; two uncles, Trey Burk and Terrell C. Boyer (Nikki) both of Dallas, TX; one grandfather, Mike Burk (maternal); numerous nieces, cousins and other family members, and one special friend, Duane Amis.
A celebration of his life will begin with a visitation at 1pm on Friday, February 24, 2017 with funeral services held immediately following at 2pm at Perry’s Funeral Chapels.
