George "Sonny" Smart

June 17, 1933 - April 5, 2018

George "Sonny" Smart, 84, of Eden passed away Thursday evening, April 5, 2018, at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro.

A memorial service will be held at 2 PM on Monday, April 9th, at Fair Funeral Home Chapel followed by a reception at The Morehead-Fair House.

Sonny  was born June 17, 1933 in Rockingham County, NC, to the late Emmett and Myrtle McGuire Smart.  He was a graduate of Leaksville High School and a US Army veteran.  Sonny loved playing golf and was an avid Carolina Tarheels fan.  He retired from E. I. DuPont in Martinsville.  Sonny will be remembered as a kind man who was always willing to help anyone in need.  He will surely be missed by all that knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Mary F. Young of Eden;  sister, Ruth Hilton of Martinsville, VA;  niece, Cheryl O'Donnell;  two step-children, Bobby Young and Ricky Young of Eden;  along with several grand- and great-grandchildren, great-nieces and a great-nephew.

I remember Sonny way with the Spray YMCA, playing basketball in the 60's. He was always the same, friendly, willing to help or seeing him at the Lynrock Golf Club. He touched so many lives. May God comfort the family during this time of loss.

Our deepest sympathy at Sonny's passing. Billy Bennett and I were making plans to visit Sonny when the weather got better. We enjoyed working with Sonny at Dupont and meeting on occasions to share a meal. He will be missed.

It was always a great time to watch basketball games and to play checkers with Sonny when I was just a little kid. Thanks for being a great cousin to me. Much love and many prayers.
