Frank Y. Smith Jr., 65, passed away Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017. He was born Aug. 11, 1951, to the late Eveline G. and Carl T. Haynes in Texas.

Having a free spirit and strong sense of humor, Frank was well known for his charismatic and often uncensored comments that left many with wide eyes and smiles. Frank was a lifelong member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and true professional of his craft, having retired from Local Union #26 as an industrial electrician.

Outside of his profession, he was a loving grandfather and father, a caring brother, and an amazingly dedicated friend, always willing to go out of his way to offer a hand or help in any way he could. He spent his life doing things his way and on his terms as he could and made a hobby of making friends.

Anyone who knows Frank, knows he could strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere, about anything.

Frank is survived by his son, Jason Smith; daughter, Kimberly King; two brothers, Glenn Smith and David Haynes; four sisters, Debbie Potter, Barbara Hazelwood, Peggy Boehm and Nancy Noble; five grandchildren, Christopher, Tyler, Caitlyn, Brandon and Kristin; and great-granddaughter, Lily May Bolick.

The family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m.  Sunday, Feb. 19, with a service at 6 p.m. at Rosewood Kellum Funeral Home and Memorial Park, 601 N. Witchduck Road, Virginia Beach.
