Charles “Charlie” Allen Smith, 75, of Florence, Arizona, passed away on March 1, 2022 in Queen Creek, Arizona.  He was born on April 1, 1946 to Frank and Aurora Smith in Tiger, Arizona.

Charlie was a fearless dreamer, innovator, thinker, and inventor who never stopped reaching for the stars. His list of accomplishments is very large even though he came from the smallest of towns. He would never pass up an opportunity to lend a hand to help anyone and made friends everywhere he went. He was a United States Navy Vietnam Veteran, electrician, and a man who loved teaching, as much as playing, the game of golf. He left an everlasting memory on everyone with who he came into contact. He will be forever in our hearts and thoughts.

Charlie is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Frank Smith.

He is survived by his loving wife, Nancy Lynn Smith; sons, Brent Kinser and Andy (Kerry)Smith; daughters, Carla Kinser-Hathcock and Danci Smith-Richardson; brothers; Patrick Smith, Roy Smith, Arthur Smith; grandchildren, Kaycee Harmon, Tia Beecher, Bailey, Emily and Jordan Smith, Jackson, Avery and Wyatt Kinser and great-grandchildren, Jayden and Jaymee Johnson and Iviegh Ocheltree.

An inurnment service will be held on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 10:00 at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona, 23029 N. Cave Creek Road, Phoenix, Arizona, 85204.

    2 weeks has passed since my dearest Uncle left us. It is still so hard to believe and often find myself in tears knowing now that you are not here to ask questions about how to do “handyman” things. Never once did he say “no”. I was always amazed by my Uncle’s talents. There was never a job too big for him. I am going to miss you beyond words. I love you and fly high with the angels.

    I just heard of the passing of Charlie. He was our drummer in a band in Superior in the early 60s.
    He was the best drummer we had.
    He excelled in playing “Wipeout” by The Ventures. I lost track of him after the band broke up due to marriages and military service. I remember playing in all the small towns in the area. I only wish we would have kept in touch. As information, he is the third band member of six to pass away. May he rest in peace.
