Hundreds of people showed up to say goodbye to Stone County Sheriff Deputy Justin Smith at his funeral this weekend. Justin was shot and killed in Mountain View, Arkansas on January 2nd by a suspect he was serving a misdemeanor arrest warrant to. During a Eulogy read by his eldest son, Justin never wanted a fuss made about him and would've been amazed at the amount of people that came to pay their respects. He went on to talk about how much his father hated wearing ties, and would never wear one by his own choice. I painted Justin in the polo shirt that he was most comfortable wearing each and every day on the job.
Deputy Justin Smith began his law enforcement career 24 years ago as a corrections officer in Jackson and Independence counties. He eventually moved on to the Stone County Sheriff's Office where he spent the last 14 years of his life serving and protecting. Justin never met a stranger and was always one to greet you with a smile. He leaves behind a loving wife, three sons, three stepchildren, 14 grandchildren and 4 siblings. Deputy Justin Smith was 60-years old.
