In Loving Memory of William (Billy) Edward Smith

February 17, 1961 – January 15, 2022

Billy Smith, a resident of Ocala, Florida entered his eternal rest on January 15, 2022, at the age of 60.

Billy was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on February 17, 1961, to Jerry and Sylvia Smith and only brother to Linda, Donna, and twin sister Bonnie. He was well looked after and loved by his sisters as he was the baby, even if only by minutes of his twin sister.

As a young boy, he played Little League baseball for a few years and excelled. He loved the water, he loved being his twin sisters shadow and even had some troubles with separation when they started grade school and could not be in the same class.

In his mid to late teenage years, he met Patty. They fell in love and immediately started a family, complete with 3 daughters and 1 son. Billy was a simple man with simple aspirations- he was a provider, a hard worker and loved his family more than anything else. He built a career in construction as A Pipe Foreman for Underground Utilities, he loved his work just about as much as he loved his family.

Billy is survived by his wife of 44 years, Patty; their 4 children, Crystal (Rob), Patricia (Garth), William (Sissy) and Emily (Mike); Sisters- Linda & Donna along with many nieces and nephews. He was a Pepaw and Big Bubba to 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.  He is proceeded in death by his mother, Sylvia; father, Jerry and twin sister, Bonnie.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
