Everett Earl Smith

August 13, 1933 — March 15, 2024

Everett Earl "Jack" Smith, a Retired Sergeant First Class in the U.S. Army, passed away on March 15, 2024, leaving behind a legacy that will always be remembered.  Born on August 13, 1933, in Long Branch, New Jersey, Everett lived a life full of honor, dedication, and love.
 
Throughout his career in the military, Everett demonstrated unwavering commitment and bravery.  He served his country with pride and distinction, earning the respect and admiration of all who had the privilege of knowing him.  His sense of duty and his ability to lead with integrity set him apart as a true hero.
 
Beyond his military service, Everett was a man of many talents and passions.  He had a remarkable skill for fixing anything he set his mind to—a quality that earned him the admiration of friends and family alike.  In his spare time, Everett found solace in music, particularly playing the guitar and singing.  His love for music brought joy to those around him and showcased his creative spirit.
 
In his family life, Everett was a loving husband to Shirley (Tester) Smith and Estella (Nestor) Smith, as well as a devoted father to his children.  He is survived by his daughters, Linda Catania and Laurie Vogelsang; granddaughters, Kristin Phillips, Megan Crowley, Katie Kain, Karyn Mayor, and Kara Catania; as well as seven great-grandchildren who brought immense joy into his life.
 
In this time of mourning, we also remember Everett's daughter, Sherry Lynn Smith; brother Joseph Smith; as well as his parents Elizabeth & Everett Smith—all of whom have gone before him.  Their memory will forever be cherished alongside Everett’s.
 
The life of Everett Earl Smith will be celebrated at services held in Glen Burnie.  The visitation will take place at Singleton Funeral and Cremation Services P.A. on March 22nd, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.  The Celebration of Life will be held at Rejoice Fellowship Church on March 23rd, starting at 10:00 AM.
 
Everett's presence will be deeply missed by all who knew him. As we bid farewell to this remarkable man, let us hold onto the memories he has gifted us with—memories of strength, kindness, and unparalleled wisdom. May he rest in peace knowing that he made a profound impact on the lives around him and that his spirit will live on through those he loved so dearly.
