Roger Lee Smith, age 69, of Marion, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, February 14, 2019.  Roger was born in Mitchell County on March 4, 1949, a son of the late Hubert Smith and Verlie Stamey Smith.  He served his country faithfully in the U. S. Army and following that he worked at various businesses, ultimately retired from Elmore Pisgah Cotton Mill in Spindale where he served as a Supervisor.  Roger was a hard-working man who provided well for his family but in his free time he loved nothing better than to be in the woods fishing or hunting.  His family meant everything to him and he loved his wife, son and four granddaughters very much.  Roger faithfully read his Bible every night.
