David Leon Smith, 81, born in Weatherford Oklahoma, died on Monday, August 14th, 2017. David, son of Edward and Gladys Smith, passed away at his home in Smithville Texas. He is survived by his sister Kathryn Robnett of Weatherford and her four children, Edward Weldon Robnett, Kem Mendizadal, Scott Allen Robnett and Kris Aaron Robnett.
David and his business partner, Harold J. Garner, opened Garner & Smith Bookstore in Austin in 1962, and Garner & Smith Art Gallery in 1969.
The Garner and Smith bookstore was a landmark on 'the drag' for 30 years.
In 1994 they shifted their business to antiques. And in 1999 they moved their antique business to Smithville.
After Harold retired in 2005 David opened his own antique shop and it quickly became the gathering place for the local residents. You could always here a great story, a profusion of laughter and David always had a good cup of coffee waiting for his many guests. David L Smith will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A celebration of David's life will be held at All Faiths of the Pines in Smithville on Saturday, August 19th, 2017 at 2pm.
