Gary Lee Smith

Feb. 3, 1950 - July 4, 2012

ANDERSON, Ind. — After a courageous battle with a long illness Gary went peacefully to his Heavenly Father with his dear wife Peggy at his side.

Gary was born on Feb. 3, 1950, in Anderson, to Thomas and Margaret (Ryan) Smith.

He worked at Delphi for 36 years.

He was a Stephen Minister at Madison Park Church of God. Gary’s faith and courage were inspiring to all who witnessed them. People who never even knew Gary, but read his online testimony, were strengthened by his faith. All who knew Gary loved him.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 16 years, Peggy L. (Lowe) Smith of Anderson, whom he married Aug. 15, 1996; four children, Jennifer Smith of Dayton, Ohio, Joshua Smith of Alexandria, Va., Misti (Shawn) Moore of Alexandria, and Joe (Lisa) Dailey of Markleville; brother, James (Linda) Smith of Anderson; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Thomas Smith Jr.

Services will be at 1 p.m. Monday at Madison Park Church of God with the Rev. Mike Schwartz officiating. Burial will be in Anderson Memorial Park Cemetery.

Friends may call from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral Service and one hour before the service at the church on Monday.

Memorial contributions may be given to Neurosurgery Foundation at Goodman Campbell or Madison Park Church of God.
