Obituary

James Rufus Smith, age 82, of Virginia Beach, Virginia passed peacefully on October 3, 2019. James was born in LaGrange, Georgia, to Hoyt and Ruby Mae Smith, on March 14, 1937. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Jevene Smith; daughter, Brenda Willis, and numerous nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

James retired from the Air Force after 21 years, working as an aircraft mechanic, before continuing his work for another 14 years as a civilian aircraft mechanic for NADEP. He was very proud of serving his country during the Vietnam War and was also a member of the local VFW.

James will always be remembered as a loving husband, brother and friend. He loved watching golf and taking long walks. He walked nearly 10 miles a day.

James’ ashes will be laid to rest at Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk, VA. An honors service will be held on October 15, 2019 at 3pm.

I'm not quite sure if this James R. Smith was someone I worked with at NARF / NADEP Norfolk, Virginia and at one time resided at Springwood Ave? We also took turns driving each other to work.
