Harrold Scott “Pete” Smith, 82, of Punxsutawney, (formerly of Summerville) passed away on Friday December 27, 2019 at Jefferson Manor in Brookville.
He was born on August 05, 1937 in Punxsutawney, a son of the late Harrold W. Smith and Goldie Helen (Kaylor) Smith.
On January 01, 2002 he married Virginia (Dixon) Stahlman. They had nearly eighteen great years together.
Pete was a member of Nazarene Church in Brookville. He taught Sunday School classes for many years. Because of his conviction to God, he and his wife Ginny provided ministry at Jefferson Manor and Brookside for eight years. He would prepare for hours for the half hour lesson he would deliver each week, then be off to hear his Pastor’s sermon. His Sunday’s were filled with three services for many years.
He was a hard worker and spent twenty-eight years working at Byerly Tire. He first worked in the cap shop and later in car alignment.
Pete was a very gentle, giving and loving person. If anyone had a need and he could help them, he would. He will be sadly missed by all, but we know we will see him again one day.
He owned seventy-five acres of land which he really enjoyed, especially the pond. Everyone was welcome and enjoyed fishing in the pond. The pond continues to be enjoyed by the entire family, which made Pete very happy.
His hobbies were making bookmarkers and numerous other things with canvas. He enjoyed working with March for Jesus for five years, making banners and hauling them in his van.
He was a great at baking pies and his grandchildren enjoyed them tremendously. He once made a birthday cake decorated with a lamb for his grandson Nathan, which he adored.
He is survived by his wife Ginny, one daughter, Holly Kathleen Falk and husband Robert of Reynoldsville; three step children, Susan Hepler and husband Dennis of New Bethlehem, David Stahlman and wife Megan of Ohl, and Steven Stahlman and wife Crystal of Summerville; one brother, John T. Smith and wife Cathy of Punxsutawney, two sisters, Janet Jean Milliron and husband John of New Bethlehem, and Margaret Shields of Covode; nine grandchildren, six great grandchildren and one on the way; numerous nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by his parents; first wife, Norma Clare (Stephens) Smith; second wife, Ora Kathleen (Bushly) Smith; and a son, David Scott Smith.
