George Smith

George B. Smith, 72, of West Columbia passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving wife and daughter on March 12, 2017. George was born in Houston to Douglas and Pauline Smith on Nov. 13, 1944.

George served in the U. S. Navy during the Vietnam Era. He was a cook on the Navy ships and later loved telling stories about all the meals he cooked for fellow shipmates and captains. He enjoyed fishing with his good friend, Gary Hughes, at Matagorda Bay. He also enjoyed barbequing, playing slot machines and watching westerns & war movies on TV; and he never missed Wheel of Fortune 6 days a week.
