HUNTERSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA
January 8, 1954 ~ February 13, 2019
Scott Covert Smith, 65, of Concord NC passed away February 13, 2019 at the Levine & Dickson Hospice House following a four year battle with cancer. He was born in Ahoskie, NC to the late Herbert and Doris W. Smith. One of five sons, Scott spent his youth in Chucatuck, Stanton and Richmond VA, where he graduated from Huguenot High School. He attended Chowan College and went on to join Parker Lancaster Homebuilders in Richmond, VA where he successfully rose up the ladder from framing carpenter to later serve as Division Manager and Vice President of Parker Lancaster’s Charlotte division. While in Charlotte, he met and married his wife Libby and they were blessed with two sons, Dylan and Jaxon. They moved to Davidson where they raised their family.
An avid sportsman, Scott was a competitive archer, target shooter and golfer. He enjoyed hunting, water and snow skiing, and fishing – especially with his boys. He pursued everything with great determination and focus, striving to be the best at whatever he engaged in.
After retiring from Parker Lancaster, Scott went on to own and operate his business, “The Stone Factory” in Mooresville, and also pursued his passion as a Gunsmith, receiving an associate degree in gunsmithing from Montgomery Community College’s nationally recognized program. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, mentor and friend who had a quick sense of humor and keen ability to compassionately listen and thoughtfully advise.
Scott is survived by wife Elizabeth (Libby) Smith, sons Dylan Smith (22) and Jaxon (20), brother William (Bill) Smith and his wife Sherry; Sisters-in-Law Robbie Smith and Kathryn (Kaki) Fowler and Brother-in Law Robert Fowler; Nieces Sara Smith, Stevie Smith, Samantha Holohan and Ally Fowler; Nephews Joseph Golson and Everett Fowler; Great Niece Adelyn Everett Smith and Great Nephew Auston Kane Tompkins and Special Family member Barbara Myers.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Herbert (Bart) Smith, Gregory Smith and Mark Smith. A memorial service will be held at Davidson College Presbyterian Church on Monday, Feb. 18 at 2:00 pm in Lingle Chapel. The family will received friends afterwards at a reception at the church. Memorial donations may be made to their church (DCPC) or Hospice.
