Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Kenneth Brian Smith, age 59

Kenneth Brian Smith was born on August 30, 1963 to Kenneth Wayne Smith and the late Donna Jean Bryant Smith.

Having been gifted with many mechanical skills from his youth, he loved to use his hands and mind to tear down and rebuild nearly every possession he had. He graduated from Ole Main High School in NLR, and from Foothills Vocational Technical School in Searcy, Arkansas, where he learned and developed talents to become a Master Mechanic. Working as a troubleshooter for several automobile dealerships, he was given the really tough jobs that others could not fix.

He and his wife Karen Wickliffe Smith were the parents of three sons: Stephen, Hayden, and Logan Smith. He is survived by Karen and his sons, his father Kenneth Wayne Smith (Vida), two granddaughters Laken and Blair Smith, sister Sandra Longhurst (Kelly), brother David Smith (Holly), uncles Leon, Wayne, Clifton, and Stanley Bryant, and nieces and nephews. His graveside services will be Friday, November 18, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at the Ivy Chapel Cemetery, 706 Ivy Chapel Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72206.
