In memory of
Martin F. Smith
Martin Frank Smith, 67, of Victoria, Texas, formerly of Natrona Heights, went to be with the Lord Friday, Feb. 5, 2021. He was born Jan. 9, 1954, in Natrona Heights, to the late John and Alda Smith. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son, Martin Frank Smith Jr. and sister, Nancy (David) Shaffer. He is survived by his son, Lonny Ray Smith, of Ford City; daughter, Melanie Spring Smith, of Ford City; siblings, Marian (William) Sumney, of Chicora, Clyde Richard (Eloina) Smith, of Butler and Bryan Lee (Corrie) Smith, of Millers Creek, N.C.; stepchildren, Betty Valcher and Grady Hendon, of Victoria, Texas, and Cynthia Clark, of Maryesther, Fla.; as well as nieces, nephews and six grandchildren. Martin was a loving father, brother, uncle and grandfather. He was also a loving and cherished friend to those in Texas. He enjoyed "tinkering" with antique gas engines and tractors and was a "Jack of all trades." He would return to Pennsylvania every summer to help his brother, Clyde, operate the antique sawmill at Portersville Steam and Gas Engine Show in Portersville. Martin worked many jobs over the years but was most recently employed by Mundine Materials and Trucking in Victoria, Texas. Martin was a valued and irreplaceable employee, co-worker, and loved friend. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Private services will be held at a later date in Pennsylvania as per his request and by those who loved him in Texas at their decision. Sympathy and condolences in Martin's memory may be sent to Grace Funeral Home, 2401 Houston Highway, Victoria, TX 77901. Thoughts and memories may be shared online at www.gracefuneralhome.net .
