Born on May 6th, 1932, at Eccles, Peggy June Daniel was the only child of the late Clifford and Tamer Almedia Peters Daniel.

In 1940, Peggy was walking home from Mattsville Church with her mother; she was only eight years of age at the time. Russell Newman, a Sandlick boy, was out and about and Peggy caught his eye. Russ asked Peggy’s mother, “for her hand in marriage.” Mrs. Daniel said, “Come back when she’s 15.” Russ and Peggy were married on Sept. 3rd, 1949. To this union were born ten children, Robert Neal, Jerry Wayne, James Lee, Deborah Lynn, Larry Gene, Mary Carol, David Scott, Russell Claud, John Phillip, and Brian Keith.

While Russ worked hard all his life to support his family, Peggy worked hard at home being a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. Peggy and Russ loved their family.

Peggy and Russ’s life has had many blessings and many difficult times, but they always held together. Robert Neal, Jerry Wayne and James Lee have passed away as adults as well as Russell Claud dying in infancy.

The blessings are great: Deborah is married to James Akers, Mary Carol is married to Ray McGrady, David is married to Hallie, John is married to Jennifer and Brian is married to Sherry. A grandson, Michael James, was raised by Peggy and Russ as if he was their own son. They were blessed as well to have 17 additional grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

Roy A. Smith

It was June 6th, 1944, Roy Smith set foot on the beaches of Normandy, as a medic, only 20 years old, with an 8th grade education. This young man would witness the horror of 2,499 young Americans who gave the ultimate sacrifice and some 8,000 more that were severely wounded. Perhaps it was on that day… Roy Smith knew that somehow he would have to “give back” to all soldiers.

Little did Roy know on D Day, that later on he would honor nearly five thousand veterans by laying them to rest with full military honors. Many would be old, like him, many would be young, the ages of his own sons, but they were all soldiers of so many wars and conflicts. And he would come back to check on them again, “their hallowed ground.” For many years, Roy personally placed flags on the gravesites of all military personnel in Fayette County, “Lest We Forget.”

Almost on a daily basis, since 1985, Roy Smith has presided over military funerals throughout the tri county area. Last Friday, March, 8th, 2013, after assisting with the Junior ROTC at Oak Hill High School, Roy Smith received “his call” and died later in that evening after a very brief illness. He was 89 years young. Well done, thy good and faithful servant. You truly were one of “The Greatest Generation.”

One of six children and a twin, Roy Allen Smith and his brother, Ray, were born on January 6th, 1924. He was the son of the late George Raymond and Fannie Bell Treadway Smith. His brother, Ray, and sisters, Helen Smith, Anna Taylor, Myrtle Woodrum Hutchison and Mable Casion, have preceded him in death.

When Roy returned from Europe, he served as a medic at Camp Ashford, a German Prison Camp operated by the U.S. Army at The Greenbrier hotel in White Sulphur Springs.

After his service career, Roy became a coal miner. He last worked at Summerlee Mine near Oak Hill. The mine was operated by Stuart Collieries, a subsidiary of the New River Company. He retired from the mining industry in 1958 when the mine closed and went to work at Long Airdox where he became a material cutter.

In 1985, Roy founded the American Legion 149 & VFW Post 3110 Honor Guard for the purpose of doing military funerals. He served as Commander and presided over countless funerals, numbers of parades, church services and VA Hospital military services. Roy was Commander of the America Legion on four different occasions. He was a member of Mount Hope Lions Club, and assisted with the Junior ROTC at Oak Hill High School. In later years, this group of young men and women have graciously taken over the ardent task of placing flags on the graves of Fayette County military personnel.

Roy leaves to cherish his memory his dear wife, Ruby, who so faithfully took his calls, “I’ll have Roy call you back when gets in.” Roy and Ruby made their home on Allman Street in Oak Hill. He was the beloved father of Rick and Jessica Smith of Dawson, Ronnie and Kathy Smith of Rock Creek, Rhonda Protka and Michael Protka, both of Oak Hill; six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

This Saturday, March 16th, at 2 p.m., we will remember the life of Roy Allen Smith at the Oak Hill Gospel Tabernacle, 124 Oyler Ave., Oak Hill. Pastor Eric Smith will be officiating. Full Military Rites will be conducted by the Oak Hill VFW Post 3110.

The family will be receiving friends from 1 p.m. until the service hour.

As always, Roy wanted to give back. He gave his earthly remains to the Human Gift Registry. At a later time, when he is “finished giving,” his ashes will be spread on his favorite hunting spot at his son’s farm. Daydream Ridge in Greenbrier County will become Roy’s hallowed ground.

Duty … Honor … Country … that was Roy Smith.

Gentry Leff Williams, age 86, of Artie, passed away on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at the Bowers Hospice House.

He was preceded in death by his wife Emily Williams, an infant daughter Melinda Williams, a son Gentry Randall Williams, a daughter Evelena Polries, and siblings Lawrence Williams, Magaline Williams, Annette Stover, Ruth Williams, Tom Williams, Roland Williams, and Rex Williams.
