Obituary

Graveside service for Mr. Joe Askins Smith, age 30, of Fayetteville, will be conducted Monday at 2:00 pm in Medium Cemetery with Joe Wayne McGee officiating.

Mr. Smith was welcomed by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Nichols Smith on August 2, 1983. Joe Askins, lovingly known as “Bubba” to his two sisters Mary Alice and Melissa, was a beautiful, loving, mischievous brown-eyed, blonde-haired boy.

Joe was always surrounded by family and friends. His personality made him an easy conversationalist, and he was a friendly face to those who knew him well and those whom he had just met.
Joe, on a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, was baptized at Brogan Avenue Baptist Church in Fayetteville, TN.

Joe most recently was employed by C and S Plastics in Fayetteville. His interests included Civil War history and reenactment.

Joe Askins Smith departed from this life on Saturday, December 21, 2013. Joe was preceded in death by a loving grandmother, Mrs. Hugh L. Smith, grandfather Kenneth Askins, father Joe N. Smith and aunt and uncle Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Bartley.

He is survived by his mother Mrs. Ronnie Phelps of Florence, MS; sister and brother-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Murray Stubblefield of Petersburg, TN and nephew Joseph Patterson; and sister and brother-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Sjon-Paul Conyer of Gallatin, TN and nieces Emmaline and Laura. He is remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and a multitude of friends.

Visitation with the family will be Monday from 9 am until 1 pm at Higgins Funeral Home.
