Levoise Smith was born December 8, 1944 in the state of Georgia, a son of the late J. Leonard Smith, Sr. and the late Bishop Alice Miller Smith. His departure was on Friday, January 29, 2021 at White Oak Manor, Charlotte, NC. He was also preceded in death by his siblings Creswell Smith, Wayne Spencer, James Henry Smith, Annie Lou Rawley and James Leonard (Shorty) Smith.
Lee attended the High Point City Schools and graduated from William Penn High School 1962. After high school, he attended Fayetteville State University and was later drafted into the United States Army where he served 3/4years. His occupation and employment was in the field of metal work.
After the passing of his mother, Lee recommitted and strengthened his faith and salvation to the Lord. Levoise was a child of God and loved to sing and hear the preacher preach God's Word. His favorite preacher was Bishop Alford Williams of Myrtle Beach, SC. He was an outstanding scholar and student in Sunday School. You could not beat him in discussion and Bible verse to remember because if nobody knew theirs, Lee always knew his.
Lee enjoyed being a DAD and being there for his children and godchildren through the thick and the thin because he felt that God would be pleased with him. Lee loved family and friends because his passion was cooking and serving big dinners to them. His favorite pass time was cooking out on holidays and eating fish with the fellas. Through this type of fellowship you could hear loud bursts of laughter and fun junk-talk from him. You see, Lee loved life and enjoyed living it.
Levoise leaves to cherish his memories, his son, Terry Hampton; his daughter, Cristina Rainey; his wonderful godchildren: Robin Hampton, Vanessa Johnson (Larry), Linda Carter, Colette Froneyberger, Denise Dines (Danny); five grandchildren, Danny, Daniel, Danielle, Darryl, and Tierra; his brother, Chenner L. Smith (Mary); his sisters, Angelia Smith Sturdivant (James), Cassandra Spencer; nieces and nephews; a host of cousins and other relatives and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be given at a Graveside service on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at Guil-Rand Memorial Park, 1550 HWY 62 W High Point, NC at 1:00 O'clock pm.
Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
