Today the funeral was held in Ozark for Marine Cpl Luther Stephen Smith and his wife Angelica Smith and their son Preston Kenneth Smith. You may recall back on the September 18, 2012 Cpl Smith and his wife and son were tragically killed in an automobile wreck in South Carolina while traveling home on leave, the entire family was killed in the wreck.
This afternoon all three were laid to rest in their home town of Ariton Alabama. The funeral was held at the Civic Center in Ozark Alabama, Among the friends and family were members of the Ozark Police Department, the Ozark Fire Department, and the Dale County Sheriff’s Office.
Outside Ozark Fire Department Ladder Truck was raised with an American Flag hanging from its mast; the Wiregrass Patriot Guard Riders were on hand to honor and pay their respects to the Smith Family.
It is a true tragedy to loose one family member but the loss the entire family is truly much more. Please keep this family in your prayers and the remaining family as they cope with this loss.
