John Franklin Smith

April 15, 1977 — November 23, 2022

Beckley, WV

John F. Smith "Frankie" born on April 15, 1977, went on home to be with our Lord on November 23, 2022 after a lifelong battle with addiction. He wanted to give it to God but couldn't quite give it to him fully.

Frankie was preceded in death by his mother Marie Smith, Maternal Grandmother Joyce Bland paternal grandparents Maynard and Bertha Smith.

Left to cherish his memories and miss him dearly are his Father John S. Smith, only son and joy of his life Hunter Smith, only sister Christy Smith, nephew Brayden Harbin and 2 nieces Makayla and Maliyah Harbin. Many cousins, aunts and uncles, including his cousin and lifelong best friend Joe Bland.

If you knew Frankie clean you loved him, he would do anything to help you and loved to joke and laugh. He loved to work, spent a few years in the mines and absolutely loved it. Frankie had a strong faith and didn't mind telling anyone he believed in God.

Services will be 2 pm Monday, December 5, 2022 in the Calfee Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Tommy Dove officiating. Friends may visit with the family one hour prior to service.
