Charles Ray Smith

Charles Ray Smith passed away on October 17, 2014 at his home in Noble, OK. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at McMahan's Funeral Home Chapel.

Charles Ray was born in a tent in Wetumka, OK ob September 22, 1925 to Golda Jewel and William Arthur Smith. On August 19, 1944, he married his high school sweetheart, Winona, who became his best friend and soul mate for 66 years. He provided and had a deep love for her and he was very family-oriented.

The Smith family lived in Noble where Charles Ray attended Noble High School. He began working for his family’s company, Smith Brothers Road Construction at an early age, and he served in the United States Army during WWII. He began operating heavy equipment in 1941 in Greenville, TX.

Later, he started his own backhoe service, which he operated all his working life. He had seven backhoes in his lifetime. He built many farm pond dams around the state, excavated numerous foundations including Norman Regional Hospital and other important structures. He maintained a farm east of Noble and ran cattle on it for many years. He built a cabin on the farm and used it as a country retreat where he and his late wife, Winona, spent many pleasant days and nights together over the years. Even into his eighties, Charles Ray continued to operate his backhoe around his farm making improvements and changing the land contour to his liking. He was an active member of the Noble Church of Christ, as well as the Noble IOOF. He was the groundskeeper of the Noble Cemetery for many years. He was the type of man who became a friend with everyone he met and genuinely loved people. He will be missed by every person whose path he has crossed.

Charles Ray is survived by his daughter; Charla Ann Runkle, of Norman, his daughter-in-law; Karen Smith, of Phoenix, AZ and grandchildren; Chad Lee Smith and wife Shannon of Norman, Laquita Smith-Anderson and Sean Smith 6 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Layton Runkle, 2 brothers; Billy Smith and Buddy Smith and 1 great grandson.
