Levander Smith Obituary

DEACON LEVANDER SMITH, was born to the late Reverend Andrew Sr. and Nina Smith on February 6, 1952, in Baltimore, Maryland. He was called home  on Sunday, November 5, 2023, after a brief illness.

Levander, affectionately known as Lee, also known as "Fat Boy", to many, received his education from Baltimore City Public Schools and graduated from Samuel Gompers General Vocational High School.  

Some years later, Lee met the love of his life, Angela and after a period of dating, they were joined in Holy Matrimony on September 16, 1988. Through this union they raised Rachell Love, their one and only child.

Lee really "Loved the Lord"! He dedicated his life to Christ at an early age and attended several churches throughout the years. Until his passing, he was a faithful and devoted Deacon of Rising Son Baptist Church where he became a member under the late Bishop Daniel E. Moore.

Lee was a hard and dedicated worker who excelled at various jobs before dedicating years of service as a master electrician at the National Security Agency (NSA) from where he retired after 30 years. Prior to, and even after his retirement, you could find him helping others by doing small and large jobs outside of his regular job.

Anyone who knew Lee, knew that he had a great sense of humor. You would always see him smiling, making jokes, and laughing about any and everything. However, in addition to that great sense of humor, he was supportive, nurturing, compassionate, and generous to a fault. Lee was always willing to help others and was a mentor to many in and outside of church.    

Lee was one of five children. He was preceded in death by his one brother, his twin, Andrew Smith Jr. and his nephew, Duwayne Carlos.

Left to cherish his memory, is his wife, the love of his life, Deaconess Angela Smith; his daughter, Rachelle Love; his grandchildren, Jerome and Jordyn Love; his sons, Jerrick and Eric Jones; his sisters, Rena Dance, Stephanie Smith and Hilda Robinson; two brothers-in-law, Thomas Gordon Sr. and Darrell Robinson; three sisters-in-law, Pearl Brown, Daisy Johnson and Carolyn Thomas; his adopted mother, Ms. Farmer; a true and lifelong devoted friend, Michael Brandon; eleven nieces and nephews; Andrew Smith III (Taishawn), Damien Johnson, Kenyata Morton (Wayne), Shermaine Darden, Kimberly, Darnell, Timothy and Britney Robinson, Natatcha and Jonelle Dance and Chautelle Batchelor (Kevin) and a host of other relatives and friends.
