Mr. Junious Marion “Pete” Smith, 79, of Elberton, Georgia passed away on Friday, February 23, 2018 at his home. "Pop," as he was lovingly known, was born in Goosepond, Georgia to the late Garland Marion and Julia Tiller Smith.

He was also preceded in death by his precious daughter, Tammi Barker (Boop); a brother, Harold “Bob” Smith; and a sister, Winnie Wallace. Mr. Pete proudly served his country in the United States Army, and retired from the Georgia National Guard. He was the co-owner of Smith Refrigeration and City Ice Co. along with his brother, Bob Smith. Pete was an avid gardener with a green thumb, and loved to share God and the fruits of his labor with others. He was a lifelong member of Falling Creek Baptist Church, and genuinely loved the Lord and his church family. Survivors include Pop’s best friend, “Red”; his son-in-law, Jimmy Barker; two grandchildren, Miles Barker and Addison Barker; a sister, Stella Smith Angel; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins, as well as many special friends.
