SALUTE TO A FRIEND, A BROTHER, AND AN INSPIRATION
Joseph Glenn Smith's life was tragically cut short in the fall of 1998. His existence forever altered due to an act of senseless violence stemming from an unfortunate incident involving a club brawl. It is this type of violence that plagues many of our communities in America.
Joe was the Peace Maker.
A Big Smile and a Warm Heart that radiated and touched all those that knew Him well.
His passing affected many people from both sides of the racial Barrier.
His Spirit and Energy knew no Boundaries of Race, Class or Social Status.
He was a Great Example of the Best of what Fort Walton Beach had to offer.
A Successful Product of His Community.
Let us come together in His Honor Annually to Celebrate and Educate the Present and Future Generations in the Spirit Peace, Pride and Togetherness.
