Those who will forever cherish his fond and precious memories are his caring sons, Antonio Smith and Larry Hopkins, Jr., both of Columbia, SC; and his loving daughters, Ymeki (Eddie) Stevens of Acworth, GA; Jerima (Maurice) Allen and Neosha (Calvin) Livingston, both of Columbia, SC; ten grandchildren; one great-grandchild; a host of other loving relatives and dear friends, all of whom will miss him dearly.
