He was also responsible for building the first movie theater at Cedar Creek Lake, Main Place Cinema. At the time of his death, he and his wife, Lucy, owned and operated Lakeshore RV Park in Seven Points.

C.D. and Lucy,  his wife of 37 years, married on Valentine’s Day in 1975. In an article published by the Review last Valentine’s Day, Mrs. Smith said she and C.D. were very good friends before they married.

A memorial service is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at Cedar Creek Bible Church in Seven Points with pastors Bob Parry and Kenny Emerson officiating. The family will greet friends at the Lakeshore RV Park Recreation room immediately following the memorial.
