David Smith '77
May 22, 1959 - June 2, 2011


DragonTales received the sad news of the passing of David Smith ’77 on 2 June after a sudden illness that lasted a little over a month. David and his wife had just moved from Carrollton, Georgia, to Montgomery, Alabama, so he could work full-time with the Army National Guard.



He was a loving husband, father and dedicated solider. Dave faithfully served his country as a Captain and Airborne Ranger in the United States Army and National Guard. He is survived by his wife, Marla Rea Smith; daughters, Sara Christine Barker and Rachel Marie Smith.


The son of Lewis and Shirley Smith, David had three sisters, all of whom attended HKIS; Karen Smith Moore  ‘73, Cathy Smith Caviness ‘75 and Deborah Smith ‘80.
