As a huge fan of the Georgia Bulldogs, he attended many games with his sons to cheer on his alma mater.  

He was preceded in death by his parents, Vernon Lee Smith and Jewell Bridges Smith.  Kyle’s survivors include his sons, Kevin Smith (Deidre) and Keith Smith (Amy); nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
