Arlington, TX

David Donald Smith, 83, also known as Daddy, Dave, Grampy, Daisy Dave and many more terms of endearment, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 28, 2024. David was born on May 16, 1940, in Columbus, Ohio. After living in Arizona for a few years, he spent his wonder years growing up in Baker City, Oregon. He was active in wood and metal shops, theater, the rifle club, and pulling memorable pranks with his friends at school. David married his junior high sweetheart and the love of his life, Jerry Jean Longwell in October 1960, and they soon moved to Georgia with the Army. That is where they began their family and eventually made many moves including Alaska, New York, and California. Then they finally planted their roots in Arlington, Texas in 1973, where he was an integral part of building the ground communication systems for the new DFW Airport. David was a loyal and longtime employee of Aeronautical Radio Incorporated, installing very tall antennas and working on top of control towers at airports to keep all aspects of air travel safe. He retired after 35 years of service making several lifelong amazing friendships along the way. David is survived by his children, son Michael Smith and his wife Melanie, and their children, Morgan (and husband Blake), and Mitchell (and wife Mayra), daughter Sherri Wade and her husband, Chris, and their children Blake (and wife Stephanie) and Chase (and wife Courteney), son Chris Smith and his wife Simone, and their children Christopher (and wife Kristin), and Michael (and wife Gina), and daughter Barbara Johnston and her husband Eddie, and children Burgandi (and husband Austin) and Quinn. Their love led to eighteen great grandchildren creating loud, fun, and loving holidays together with an occasional water or food fight. At family gatherings, he often joked that he created a family so big, there wasn’t room for him at the table. Along with being the best storyteller of all time, he volunteered in his younger years with the Forest Service as a firefighter. David was an Explorer Troop leader and led Mike, Sherri and Chris and their friends on several eventful and fun camping trips. His favorite hiking experience was a trip he took with his son Chris to Philmont Scout Ranch. He even enjoyed canoeing with his daughter Barbara in his later years. He learned all about ham radios from Jean’s parents, and earned his Ham Radio license KB5PMX, and worked with a few of his children and grandchildren to obtain their licenses as well. He was a certified storm spotter for RACES in the DFW area, and along with Jean, he was an active member of the Arlington Amateur Radio Club for many years, including communications at the Arlington July 4th parades. He was a skilled carpenter making lecterns for his two daughters who are teachers and a cradle and rocking horse for each of his kids’ children. He was an avid reader and that is truly how he passed much of the time for the past few years. He could always be seen with his cat in his lap and close to his laptop reading short stories he found online. He was an amateur writer himself when he posted stories from his adventures in the Army on his Facebook page which always garnered interesting and funny responses. David left a legacy of laughter, love of country, honor in words and deeds, and the beautiful example of how a man should treat his wife and family. He loved the Lord and believed in forgiveness and second chances. He is now safely home with God and his lifelong best friend, Jean. He will be greatly missed, but always remembered with a smile and laughter. David was preceded in death by his wife Jean Smith, parents Virginia & Edward Meckel, and daughter-in-law Simone Smith. Visitation will begin at 2:00 with the service beginning at 3:00 at the Wade Family Funeral Home on Thursday, March 7th at 3:00, Interment will take place at the DFW National Cemetery at 11:00 AM., on Friday, March 8th In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Arlington Amateur Radio Club.

Arlington, TX

Carrie Moore Ruffin, the eldest daughter born August 25, 1922 to Benjamin Franklin “Frank” and Hannah Smith Moore. Her early years were spent working on the family farm in Choctaw County, where she helped the family grow crops and raise farm animals. Like her sisters, Carrie helped with the housework and cooking. When that work was done, she sewed quilts with her mother and sisters. While she worked hard at home, Carrie was fortunate that her parents were advocates for education, as many families were not able to send their children to high school. To attend a high school that taught black students, the family paid for Carrie, older brother Theodore and two younger sisters, Inell and Mary to live with a family in Lisman, AL twenty-three miles away. Although it took several years, Carrie received her high school diploma from Choctaw County Training School, then attended the Mobile branch of Alabama State College for Negroes, now known as Bishop State Junior College. Armed with her high school diploma and some college credits, she was qualified to teach elementary school and began a brief career as a school teacher in the town of Jenkins, AL. It was rare for single women to live alone at that time, so she rented a room from a local family. Carrie taught for several years, attending college each summer in Mobile, AL where she would stay with her oldest sister, Fleda “Fleetie”. It was while living in Mobile that she met James Madison Ruffin from York, AL. They married and began their life together in Mobile. They had five children together, and Carrie became a homemaker and seamstress, with the ability to sew just about anything. They were both active in the PTAs for their children’s schools, the local Democratic Party and their church, Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church where Carrie was a Sunday School Teacher, a Deaconess, a member of the Matrons and the Missionary Society. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. After more than sixty years in Mobile, AL Carrie and James moved to the Dallas, TX area in 2010 to be closer to their daughters. After moving there, Carrie enjoyed participating in activities at the DeSoto Senior Center where she was a member of the Golden Voices Choir. She attended Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, TX where she was a member of the Women’s E Sunday School Class and participated in the Senior Ministry. Carrie passed away on Monday, February 19, 2024 in Arlington, TX. In addition to her husband, James Madison Ruffin, Sr.; she was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Hannah Moore; siblings: Frank Moore, Jr., Herbert (Margaret) Moore, Sr., Herman (Essie) Moore, Willie (Cora) Moore, Sr., Charles (Bettie) Moore, Sr., Theodore (Catherine) Moore, Horace (Olga Jean) Moore, Sr., Fleda (Rivers) Pugh, Daisy (McKinley) Cowan, Inell (Fred) Crumley, Mary (Billy) Wilcox, Bertha (Johnnie) Banks and Gertrude (Anderson) Carter; and stepdaughter, Mary Alyce Ruffin.
