Im Just Resting My Eyes

Kenneth Cleveland Smart, 67, of 45 Somersett Drive, Spartanburg, S.C., passed in his sleep on Monday, November 1, 2010, at his home. Born February 26, 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisc., he was the son of the late Wellington Cleveland and Dorothy Roy Smart.

A veteran of the U. S. Army, KCs primary career was devoted to broadcasting and real estate development, culminating in ownership of WTYN in Tryon. Upon retirement from broadcasting, KC began a second career with Toyota, working with Dave Edwards in Spartanburg, S.C., for the past 10 years. &bsp;

Throughout his lifetime, KC devoted himself to those around him, placing the needs of his friends and family before his own. A devout Roman Catholic, KC enthusiastically embraced his faith, the Knights of Columbus, and his years with the Jaycees and the Lions Club. &bsp;

He is survived by three brothers, Craig and Linda of Seattle, Wash., Keith and Brenda of Spartanburg, and Chris and Louise of Ellensburg, Wash. His two nephews, Adrian and Julian, and two nieces, Shelby and Joelle, held special significance to KC, and in turn, his passing leaves a significant void for us all.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, November 5, 2010, at the Catholic Church of Jesus Our Risen Savior in Spartanburg, conducted by the Rev. Frank Palmieri. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of ones choice.

The family is at the home of his brother, Keith Smart, 298 Fairlane Drive, Spartanburg, S.C. 29307.
