Obituary ...................
Louis Nolan Smith, 90, passed on 10-12-14. Preceded in death by Jane Hagen his sister and Belle Smith Gardner his mother. His wife of 56 years Latrelle and their two children Belinda, Skipper and granddaughter Ashley survive him. Louis was a decorated WWII veteran receiving a purple heart after being shot down over enemy territory and taken prisoner for 9 months before escaping and making his way back. After returning home he became a pilot with Delta Airlines where he met his wife and love of his life. This love along with his love for flying continued from being a Captain of an L1011 jumbo jet to RC planes which he flew with his son and son-in-law David Peeks. He also loved fishing and diving in the Keys as well as snow skiing in Colorado. He was an amazingly strong and devoted man that will be missed by many… since Capt. L.N. Smith is flying high in a better place!
