Joseph Lee Smith

1950 - 2021


Joseph Lee Smith, age 71 of Ironton, Ohio went to meet his Heavenly Father on Thursday May 20, 2021 at his home in Warner Robins surrounded by family.

He is preceded in death by his father Robert James Smith and his mother Emaline Yoho Smith, and survived by his wife, Yoni Smith, two daughters, Emaline Johnson and Donna (Erich) Dye, granddaughters, Breanna Crowe and Alyssah Dye, grandsons, Branden Crowe and Landon Dye, brothers Jim (Gaynell) Smith, Randy (Julia) Smith, Bill (Nancy) Smith and John (Nancy) Smith, sisters Donna (Larry) Blankenship and Patty (Floyd) Pauley, and many nieces and nephews. 

Mr. Smith graduated from Dawson Bryant High School, class of 1968 and went on to serve his country honorably with 24 years of exemplary service in the United States Air Force. He was a Vietnam and Gulf War Veteran. 

Mr. Smith enjoyed spending time with his family, going to family reunions and get-togethers with his many friends. His hobbies included golfing, fishing, camping, and The Ohio State Buckeyes. He was the consummate family man and knew no stranger. He will be sorely missed, as will his famous hugs.

Uncle Joe always made you feel special even though there may have been a ton of family around he took time to talk to me!He had called me young lady for as long as I can remember.. I was so excited to learn we were moving to Georgia this summer in the hopes of spending some time with him! My hearts breaks but am happy to know I will be spending eternity with him some day! Aunt Yoni, Emaline and Donna Sue you are in our prayers love you all!
