Sunrise: October 24, 1950

Sunset: May 22, 2021

MR GERONICA (RONNIE GEE) SMITH of Lasser Drive, Norfolk, VA departed his life on May 22, 2021. He was born on October 24, 1950, in Norfolk, VA to the late Henry Lawrence Smith and Florence Brown Smith. He was preceded in death by his brother Carnell Smith.

During his youth, Ronnie played baseball for many years with the Cavaliers baseball team. He loved fishing and could often be seen on a pier or a boat. He loved to dance and many times you would see him hand dancing with his sisters. He also liked to cook, and his signature meal was pepper steak. He had a flair for style, and you would always note his attire. That man could dress!

He worked for many years at Smithfield Packing Company as a supervisor. His last occupation was a supervisor for a SAIC warehouse. He received many certificates of achievement.

Ronnie leaves to cherish one son, Tariq G. Smith, of Norfolk, one daughter Giovania V. Brown (Desmond) of Georgia, three sisters Linda Greene of Norfolk, Dr. Marie B. Quick (Wayne) of Maryland, Roslyn Smith Foreman of Chesapeake, one granddaughter, Annaya Smith, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

    My sincerest condolences to the Smith Family. β€œG” was the β€œG” in β€œOG.” He was quite the handsome dresser back in the day. He was a hell-of-a football player. My brother, Melvin, used to say that β€œG” would run the football sideways. Said he has never seen anyone else do that in his life. β€œG” was a proud, strong man with a very nice personality. He will forever be missed. Rest easy my friend.

    My sister called to share with me the passing of our friend. I paused for a moment to think of the good times we had growing up. Those were the best days of our lives. None of us knew then, just how fast time flies. My last time speaking with him was October 2016, we reminisced about the “Good Ole Days”. He will be missed ..in my heart always. All my love and prayers to The Family of Geronica Smith “G” .

    My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Smith family. Praying that God will comfort, strengthen and give them peace. Sending them my love and hugs. Gee was a really cool guy, soft spoken but strong, always matching, neat in attire and just an absolute joy to be around. He will truly be missed but to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Rest in paradise my friend.

      My heartfelt condolences to Gee’s family, in this time of loss. Though I’ve only known Gee a few years, he made them some of the best years through our many long nights in search of fish! He, my sister Jennetta (Natte), and myself, were out there all night, on many nights, wherever there were fish to be found. I will cherish those times, Always. Rest well “Fishing Buddy”. πŸ™πŸ½

    To Linda (Mama Love), Rosalynn and Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    I only knew Ronnie a short time but your Brother was so respectful of the ladies when he would come to the salon A Family Affair. He was very knowledgeable about life and loved people.. Your faith, family and beautiful memories will get all of you through this hurting time. May the Lord be with all of you.
