Minister Charles Ray Smith, born in Lynwood, CA and went to be with the LORD on March 7, 2010 after a short illness. Minister Smith was a mighty man of God and made no respecter of persons. No one he meet was a stranger in his life. He was not ashamed to speak to anyone about Jesus and be a witness to win souls. He was a friend to many and a brother to most and he will be missed by all who knew him.
He was survived by a loving wife, Kathryn D. Smith and 4 beautiful children, Darrion Thompson, Malachi Smith, Josiah Smith and Kaylijah Smith. He leaves behind his mother, Pauline White and 6 siblings, his sisters, Phyllis, Trice, China (his twin sister), Angel, Tamika and his brother Dion. He has also left behind several neices and nephews and many relatives, his Pure Praises Ministries family and a host of other friends.
The Memorial Services will be held on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at Pure Praises Ministries, 1456 S. Cobb Drive, SE, Marietta, GA 30060. The re-pass will be held between the hours of 4 to 6 p.m. at the same location. All donations will go for the purpose of his memorial services and his immediate family.
