Jerome David Smith peacefully passed away on Sunday, March 10th, at his home, surrounded by his beloved family. He is survived by his devoted wife of 62 years, Bella, his daughters Shelley Parker, Miriam Ross, and his son Perry, and his treasured grandchildren Colin, Casey, and Bennett. Despite facing illness, Jerome's indomitable spirit radiated, allowing him to embrace life's joys to the fullest.

Jerome derived happiness from simple pleasures, whether engaging in a friendly game of poker with friends, passionately supporting Alabama football, or sharing tender moments with his cherished dog, Oliver. He obtained his Law degree from the University of Alabama and pursued further studies, earning a Master’s degree in tax law from NYU. He also served as captain in the U.S. Army. Professionally, he dedicated himself to tax legal services and later concentrated in elder law, providing guidance and support to individuals navigating life's later stages. Jerome's philanthropic contributions extended to his role as president of the Lions Club in Montgomery, Alabama. After retirement, Jerome and Bella enjoyed their explorations of the world through travel.

A memorial service honoring his life will be held on Tuesday, March 12th, at 1:00 pm at North Atlanta Memorial Park. Shiva will be observed at the Smith residence located at 4400 Village Dr. Dunwoody, GA at 6:30 pm on both Tuesday and Wednesday, March 12th and 13th, as a tribute to Jerome's extraordinary life.

In lieu sending flowers, we kindly request donations to either the American Cancer Society or Beth Shalom Synagogue.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
