Jerry Pittman Smith was born on May 17, 1940 to the late Homer and Lucile Pittman Smith in Jonesboro, Texas.  He was the youngest of three children.  He grew up and attended school in Jonesboro, graduating Salutatorian of his class from Jonesboro High School in 1958.  After briefly attending Trinity University in San Antonio, he attended and received his Bachelor’s Degree from Texas Tech University in Lubbock in 1962.   He spent the next several years working for an accounting firm in Dallas.  In 1965, he went to work for the United States Army Audit Agency, where he received many performance awards and commendations.  He also served as the Managing Auditor of the field offices at Ft. Riley, Kansas and Fort Hood, Texas.  He accepted assignments worldwide that included Germany, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Iran, England, France, Egypt, Monaco, Morocco, Australia and Greece before ultimately retiring in 1995.  In 1998, he met the love of his life, Jamie Young and the couple settled down in Nolanville. Jerry loved the beach and was particularly fond of Randolf Scott movies.  Most of all though, he loved showing off his mustache.
