Gregory Smith Obituary

Gregory Todd Smith “G Todd” of Clover passed away unexpectedly on September 14th. He is survived by his wife Dori, adult children Gage (Carson) Yukob and Kailee Brandon (Dakota), grandson Brewer Yukob, and his beloved dog Fen (short for Fenway Park.) He is also survived by sisters Beverly Smith Wike (Jim) and Sherry Smith Sellers, brother Mark Smith Sr. (Kimberley), many nieces and nephews (and their children), and many dear friends who will miss him. He is the son of Tom Smith Sr. and Pansy Bechtel, both deceased.

G Todd had a passion for singing Karaoke, especially the songs his Dad loved to sing. He loved the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Clemson Tigers, boiled peanuts, and making us all laugh with his quick wit and sense of humor. He did not love Dori’s hamburger pie, the New York Yankees or seeing anyone unhappy. With his jovial personality, he made friends quickly and never met a stranger. Dori often joked that G Todd was the welcoming committee for the town because he made friends with everyone and wanted them to feel welcome within the community.

He was a baseball guy, following in his Dad’s footsteps as a little league coach earlier in life. He kept up with his players, many of whom are still friends and to his last day still called him coach. He was a better coach than a player himself. Those of us who were around when he first started playing remember him for “the great slide,” halfway between first and second base, finished safely with a long crawl to the base after an errant throw from the outfield.

G Todd preached to everyone that we should always remind the ones we love that we love them, believing that we never know what the next day may hold or if it may be the last opportunity to do so. How his words of wisdom sadly ring true at a time like this.

Friends are invited to join family to celebrate his life at the Water Tank establishment he frequented on Main Street in Clover from 3 pm to 5 pm on Saturday, September 30. Dress casually and bring your fond memories of the life we all will miss. Notably absent but not forgotten, G Todd will be busy catching a big stringer of bass and bluegill with his Dad and Paw Paw Brice on some well-stocked farm pond in heaven.
