It is never easy to convey sad news. Tuesday evening, April 25th, Willis A. Smith, known to all as Smitty, passed away. He had been in a nursing home for several years. For all of those who knew him, we will always remember what a great person he was. Long after retirement he attended our company parties and picnics and was always so happy to be included. He was always interested in each and every person within the company.
Smitty started this company in 1972, initially to build pre-engineered buildings as well as conventional commercial and industrial structures.
He leaves a proud legacy in the reputation of this company that he began.
We will all miss him.
In memory of Smitty, a contibution of $1,000 will be made to the Manatee Community College-Willis A. Smith Construction, Inc. Scholarship Fund.This construction related scholarship was established approximately 15 years ago and Smitty was a great supporter.
