Mark Wayne Smith, age 55, passed away on Wednesday, May 9, 2018.
He was born June 29, 1962 in Hedgesville, W. Va. to the late Willard William and Luella Landis Smith. Mark was an extremely hard worker, and was employed by General Shale Brick Yard from 1982 until its closing in 2016. His family considered him to be OCD because everything had to be “just right”.
