DANNY BURL SMITH

Finger, TN: Danny Burl Smith, age 80 passed away February 12, 2024, at Jackson Madison County General Hospital.

He was born September 8, 1943, in McNairy County, the Good Hope Community and grew up in Chester County, the son of the late Richard David and Annie Rickman Smith. He graduated from Chester County High School in 1961.   

He worked at Brown Shoe Company, then as parts manager at Motor Parts in Henderson, then Henderson Truck and Tractor and finally at Jackson Tractor Company for a total of thirty-two and a ½ years.

He was long haul mail carrier for Barclay and later Pat Salmon in Memphis, retiring in 2009 after driving eleven years.

Danny was an avid New York Mets fan, listening to all their games, and his favorite colors were Mets orange and blue. He was looking forward to the Mets spring training. He enjoyed putting puzzles together, but his greatest joy was bragging on his kids and grandkids.

Mr. Smith is survived by his wife, Susie Elizabeth Maness Smith, a son, Duran Smith (Kimberly) of Brevard, NC; two daughters, Angela R. Smith Scott (Christopher) of Henderson and Paula Smith Fowler (Kevin) of Fairview, TN; four grandchildren, Christopher Kyle Scott, Dylan Blake Fowler, Garrett Thomas Fowler and Mia Elizabeth Smith and a great grandchild, Grayson Blake Fowler.
