Vernon “Bubba” Doyle Smith Jr.
Vernon “Bubba” Doyle Smith Jr., age 54, of Branson, Missouri, passed away July 28, 2020. He entered this life June 10, 1966, in Memphis, Tennessee, the son of Vernon Doyle Smith Sr. and Imogene (Dye) Peacock. He is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Christy Smith. Vernon was joined in marriage December 26, 2019, to Amber Soper. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
An extremely giving and dependable individual, Vernon volunteered his time working as a firefighter. He enjoyed his time on the water, whether it be fishing or boating. Vernon was a prankster who got along with everyone. The outdoors offered him the space to let building skills shine, and his downtime was watching NASCAR. Vernon loved his family and his dog, Gizmo and will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Amber Smith of the home; daughter, Katrina (Anthony) Joiner of Water Valley, Mississippi; son, Jeremy (Debbie) Smith of Huntsville, Alabama; and grandchildren: Conrad Smith and Presley Smith.
A celebration of life will be held 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at Table Rock Lake with Stan Robinson officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Wounded Warrior (www.woundedwarriorproject.org) or Shepherd of the Hills Veterinary Clinic (417-337-PETZ).
