ALFRED JAMES SMITH was born February 24, 1949, in Beaumont, Texas, to Bessie and James Smith. He grew up in St. Luke Baptist Church where he participated in the choir and sang with the Heavenly Clouds.  

After graduating from Hebert High School in 1967, Alfred became a student athlete at Lamar State College of Technology, and was a member of the 1968 track and field squad, that was documented as the school’s best team, up to that point. After a tragic airplane crash involving members of the track team, Alfred moved to Dallas, enrolled in a technical/vocational school, and became a certified and licensed electrician.  For 25 years, he was employed with Mobil Oil as an electrician and shared his wisdom and knowledge with many. 

Alfred was preceded in death by his brother, Harold Lee Smith; son, Harold James Smith; parents, James and Bessie Smith and nephew, Kevin Lloyd Bennett. He is survived by his sister, Beverly Stone (Charles); daughter, Tifany Smith Wilson (Derrick); son, Robert Lumpford (Jamie); grandsons, Cameron Lumpford, Miles Wilson and Nolan Wilson; nephews, Dwayne Dalco and Pastor Bryan Keith Dalco and a host of other relatives and friends. 

Alfred possessed a quick wit, high intellect and a gift of “versatility” – nothing was a challenge for him.  When he was not being a comedian with friends, he enjoyed playing dominoes, partaking in fine beverages and facing life with an optimistic attitude. He enjoyed life to the fullest.   Alfred departed this earth on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at Harbor Hospice with his daughter by his side.  In honor of his wishes, a private candle light memorial was held at his loving sister’s home the evening of, April 10, and concluded with a balloon release tribute by his grandsons to honor their Paw-Paw.
