Ronald "Ronnie" Wayne Smith

August 21, 1958 — January 13, 2022

Ronald Wayne Smith, 63, of Charleston, SC entered into eternal rest on January 13, 2022.

Born on August 21, 1958 in Florence, SC, Ronnie was a son of Lemuel Alton Smith and Mary H. Smith.

Ronnie enjoyed telling tall tales with his friends and family. If he picked on you, that meant he loved you. He was an avid hunter and fisherman.

Ronnie is survived by his mother, Mary; his son Brian Salvo (Morgan) of St. Louis, Missouri, and grandchildren, Phoenix, Eva, and Wren. He is also survived by his sister, Marilyn Trevino; his brothers, Ricky Smith (Katie) and Robby (Barbara), and too many to count nieces and nephews.
