Mark Smith

A Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Mark Smith, 63, will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, January 14, 2023, at Lea Joyner Memorial Methodist Church in Monroe, LA with Rev. Ben McGehee and Rev. Betty Swanson officiating.  Visitation will be held from 1:00 P.M. until service time under the direction of Mulhearn Funeral Home Monroe, LA.

Mark was born in Monroe, LA on May 1, 1959, and passed away peacefully surrounded by his family into the arms of Jesus on January 7, 2023.  He graduated from Northeast Louisiana University (now ULM).  After working in sales for Cleveland Cotton Products, Del Monte, Pillsbury and RPS, he became an Account Manager at W.W. Grainger, where he had worked for the past 27 years.  In that time, he earned recognition 7 times as Presidents Club (the top 1 % of sales in the company) and Annual Achievers 2 times.  With that, he earned reward trips to Cancun, The Bahamas, England, Australia, San Diego, Maui, Puerto Rico, and his favorite, last years trip to Cabo San Lucas.  Mark is preceded in death by his parents, George and Billie Smith.

Mark and his wife Laura would have been married 40 years in May.  They were blessed with 2 children and their spouses, Kevin Smith and wife, Remie, and Kayla Bamburg and husband, Joe; along with 6 grandchildren, who called him “Super Papaw”, Wesson, Archer, Dosson, and Campbell Smith, Guinevere and Marston Bamburg.  He is also survived by his brother, Roger Smith and wife, Beverly; his special nieces, Kari Ellis and husband, John, Kristi Buerger and husband, Eric; great nephew and niece, JR and Jessica Ellis.

Mark was a lifelong member of Lea Joyner Memorial Methodist Church (formerly Southside Methodist) and the family requests that memorials be made in his honor to the church.

The family would like to thank his special friends, Mickey and Laurie Traweek, Mark and Donna Thomas, and Andy and Phyllis Thompson, The Genesis Sunday School Class, The Lab Staff at Affinity Health Group, and the Grainger employees, D’anna, Daniel, Roger, Samantha and Tammy for all the loved they showed the family during Mark’s brief illness.
