Mr. Robert W. Smice

August 9, 1950 — June 2, 2022

Robert W. Smice, 71, of Valley, Alabama, passed away peacefully at the Columbus Hospice House while surrounded by his loving family.

There will be a Celebration of Life Service at 11:00 AM EST on Thursday, June 9, 2022, at the home of Robert and Sandra. An additional Celebration of Life Service will be held in Illinois, at a later date.

Mr. Smice was born in Oregon, IL, the son of the late Leon Smice and Mary Kump Smice. Robert attended the Lanett Congregational Christian Church where he shared his love for Jesus. Robert enjoyed dancing, especially to 1950’s music. He loved the outdoors, especially camping and yardwork. He was a grill-master and loved cooking more for others than himself. He was well known for his homemade donuts which he often delivered to friends and neighbors still warm. Robert was also known by all as an avid Alabama Crimson Tide Football fan. Robert loved his animals and considered them his “children.” Above all, he loved all his family, but none other more than his wife Sandra.

In addition to his parents, Robert was preceded in death by his sister Ellen Schleider.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife of 17 years Sandra Baker Smice; daughter Bobbi Sue Young of Oregon, IL; son Tim Smice and his wife Stacey of Rock Falls, IL, sister Diane Bouscum of Johnstown, PA; brothers Donald Smice and wife Nancy of Dixon, IL, Leon Smice of Princeton, IL, Leroy Smice and his wife Lynette of Oregon, IL and Steve Smice and wife Cindy of Mount Morris, IL; fifteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
