Bobby Joe Smith, 48 of Cottonwood, passed away on Friday, May 21. He was born August 18, 1961 in Vicksburg, Mississippi to Nevelle and Lena Smith.

Bobby attended Fontana High School in California. He then worked as an electrician for Jarmer Electric of Sedona.

Bobby taught himself to be a good person and always did the right things in life; no matter what sacrifices he faced. He loved country music, reading only his Bible, to sing and jewelry and coin collecting.

Bobby was a loving son, brother, husband, father and Pa Pa. Forever in my heart, Bobby’s Girl.
