Surrounded by his loving family, Jack H. Smith, 72, of 39 Park St., Jamestown, passed away on Sunday, March 24, 2013, at WCA Hospital.
Known to his family and friends as "Uncle Jack," he was born June 18, 1940, in Jamestown, the son of the late Eldred and Gladys Anderson Smith.
A 1958 graduate of Jamestown High School (JHS, just like his initials), he worked at the former Jamestown Ambulance Service, Millbrook Bread and Morgan Linen Services. Prior to retirement, Jack and his wife, Linda, owned and operated City Parcel Delivery. He was a member and treasurer of the Celoron/Lakewood Moose Lodge 2587. Jack was also a member of South Hills Country Club, Chautauqua County Club Associates, and a past member of the Vikings for many years. He enjoyed bowling, playing pinochle and his most recent love was golf.
Surviving are his wife, Linda Lawler Smith, whom he married Nov. 23, 1985, or as he would say, "some Saturday in November;" his children: Debbie Sue Smith of Jamestown, twins: Denise E. French of Baldwins-ville, N.Y., and Douglas W. (Vicki) Smith of Williamsville, N.Y.. Also surviving are his twin brother, James E. (Shirley) Smith of James-town; stepdaughters: Debbie (Kevin) Breneman of Celoron, and Shelly (Dave) Kell of Jamestown; three grandchildren; three step-granchildren; two great- grandchildren; eight step great-grandchildren; one niece; two nephews; and two stepnieces, all of whom loved him very much.
A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday in the Lind Funeral Home. The Rev. Timothy Phelps, Hospice chaplain will offi-ciate.
The family will receive friends from 1-3 p.m. Thursday and two hours prior to the service in the funeral home.
