Ted Eugene Smith, 69, of Charleston, South Carolina, husband of Rebecca "Becky" McCard Smith entered into eternal rest Sunday, July 29, 2018 surrounded by family. His Funeral Service will be held Friday, August 3, 2018 in James Island Baptist Church, 2023 Wappoo Drive at 11:00 a.m. The family will receive friends Thursday from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. with an Elks Service beginning at 7:00 p.m. in J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. West Ashley Chapel.

Ted was born November 9, 1948 in Darlington, South Carolina, son of the late Kenneth L. Smith and Geraldine Carter Smith. He was a retired salesman for CC Dickson, a member of the Charleston Elks Lodge and a retired Sergeant First Class in the SC Army National Guard.

In his younger years Ted enjoyed playing softball for Coburg Dairy, on a co-ed league with his daughter Claire, James Island Baptist Church, and later on a senior league. He loved Clemson football, bowling, watching his grandson Teddy play baseball, cruising, road trips with close friends, and anything from "As Seen on TV". Ted enjoyed singing, shagging, fishing, and spending time with his family. He was known for making everyone laugh and kept a sense of humor despite his recent medical issues. Most of all Ted loved his family with a love stronger than most people are not lucky enough to experience.

His family would like to give special thanks to the staff at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, the MSICU team at Ashley River Tower and his Goddaughter Amanda Holseberg for taking such great care of him.

Ted is survived by his wife of 46 years, Becky; daughter, Claire Moody (Shawn) of Ravenel, SC; three brothers: Kenneth L. Smith, Jr. of Charleston, SC , Herbert Smith (Brenda) of Moncks Corner, SC and Mark Smith (Tammy) of Charleston, SC; sister, Debbie Pinson of N. Charleston, SC; and grandson, Teddy O'Neal Moody.

Memorials may be made to James Island Baptist Church, 2023 Wappoo Drive, Charleston, SC 29412 or The American Lung Association.
