Lewis K. Smoak, Jr.
October 11, 1936 - September 22, 2014

Lewis K. Smoak, Jr., 77, of Chapin, SC, died Monday, September 22, 2014 peacefully at his home after a lengthy illness.

There was a private celebration of his life.

He was born October 11, 1936 in Palatka, FL, son of the late Lewis K. Smoak, Sr. and Hazel Carter Smoak of Orangeburg, SC. 

Lewis graduated from Orangeburg High School.  Following graduation he joined the U.S. Marine Corp expecting to see the world but laughed as he was stationed in Cherry Point, N.C. for the duration of his service to the Corp. 

He retired from State Farm Insurance after 41 years, most of those years on Savannah Hwy in Charleston, SC.  He moved to Chapin, SC in 2005.  Throughout his years, he enjoyed traveling, fishing and hunting with his friends and sustained a great appreciation for history and reading.   He was an extremely talented man who loved to build.  He also loved having  a beautiful yard and worked hard at doing just that.

Lewis was a kind, generous and loving person.  He is survived by his adoring and devoted wife Marcia Ann Smoak and her daughter Bobbi Jean Blair; his children, Doug Smoak (Leslie) of Helper, Utah, Deborah Bobo (Jim) of Charleston, SC, Donna Patterson (Pat) of Macon, GA; six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.  Lewis was cared for by three wonderful women, Monica Chapman, Peggy Barnes and Dianna Paige.  My loving thanks to them and to Heartstrings Hospice for his continual care.

Lewis and Marcia were inseparable and shared a love that many will never experience.

 In lieu of donations, Lewis would prefer that the people reading this do a kind deed for someone.
