Tim is survived by his wife, Latresa (Wood) Smith; daughters Jennifer Heffner and husband Nick, Tiffany Smith and Steffany Smith; his mother, Linda Ruth (Nelson) Ussery; sisters Rhonda Lovell and husband Phil and Brandi Spindle and husband Bryan; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Carl Wayne Smith, and grandparents Herman (Lefty) and Lois Smith; J.C. Nelson, and A.C. and Juanita Streetman.

Funeral services are at 11:30 a.m. today at First Baptist Church, 900 Pullen, Royse City, with Pastor Les Joslin officiating. Interment will follow in Rest Haven Memorial Park under the direction of Rest Haven-Rockwall Chapel.
