Edgar Lee Smith

August 1, 1927 — February 12, 2019

Edgar Lee Smith, Junior, passed away with family by his side on February 12, 2019. He was 91 years old. He was born on August 1, 1927 in Vera, Ok., to his parents, Edgar Lee Smith, Sr., and Beulah (Rozell) Smith.

Ed is survived by his wife of 69 years, Maxine, his daughter, Randa Slaight, and his daughter and son-in-law, Jana and Steve Mackey. His sister, Sybil (Smith) Harper, and brother, Billy Ray Smith, also survive him.

Ed delighted in his grandchildren, and great-grands. He is survived by Randa's children: Andra, and husband Jason Munoz; Tyler Slaight: and Maggie, with husband Jack VanDaley. Jana and Steve's children who survive him are Adam Maris, and wife, Vanessa; and Paige Mackey.

His great-grands are Max, Brooks, Tripp and Champ Munoz; Joey Slaight; Briar VanDaley; Smith and Finley Maris; and Makayla and Evan Mackey.

Ed was preceded in death by grandchildren Ali Maris, and Jason Mackey, as well as great-grand, Jaxon Slaight.

Ed proudly served our country in the Navy. He was able to participate in The Honor Flight to Washington, D. C. with other veterans to express their patriotism and love of country.

He met Maxine Johnson, and they were married. People giving condolences to the family have all mentioned how Ed and Maxine were a great example of love and respect toward one another in their marriage. They were married for 69 years.

Ed was the owner of Smith Building Center in Skiatook, Ok. He also was a home contractor. He could look at a piece of land, and see the potential of a new housing addition.

When Ed and Maxine moved to Grand Lake permanently, he purchased Grand Lake Lumber. Nothing pleased him more than to be involved in a new project. He continued to draw house plans and oversee construction to the day he passed away.

Services will be held Thursday, February 21, 2019. The time it will be held is 11:00 a.m., at First United Methodist Church. The address for the service is 1115 S. Boulder in Tulsa, Ok. .
