Jimmie Wayne Smith was born October 4, 1931 in Coleman County to Carl Smith and Elva Wells Smith.  He grew up in Coleman, Santa Anna, Grosvenor and Bangs and served in the Air Force.  After being honorably discharged from the Air Force, Jimmie went to work for Tidewater Oil Company in Venice, Louisiana.  He moved back to Texas, working for B.J. Services in Crane.  Jimmie moved to east Texas, working in Tyler as a bread salesman and later worked for the Farmer/Stockman Magazine, which took him all over east and west Texas.  Jimmie also worked in road construction in Waco and later on the Cotton Belt Railroad in Bellmead and Kilgore.  He retired as a conductor.

After retiring, Jimmie made his home in Brownwood, where he has lived the last 35 years.  Jimmie grew up attending the Church of the Nazarene with his parents.  He loved singing at church events and playing his guitar.  He would go camping, fishing and hunting every chance he had.  Jimmie tinkered on cars, trucks and tractors.  He could fix anything and make it run.

Jimmie is survived by his daughter Anthonette “Toni” Ferguson and her husband, Billy of Kilgore; his son, Delbert D.
