A man of many names. Fours of us have the privilege to call him Daddy. Many more call him Granddaddy. Some say Smith, Brother Whiteside, or some have called him Whit.
God called his name in the late 1940’s and he answered to begin a new profession. He has been a sawmill helper, a farmer, a highway maintenance worker, and most of all a preacher and pastor. He has pastored in many churches throughout Mississippi for over 60 years.
“Not many of us will ever be able to say that we have been a husband for 76 years. Another milestone that most do not reach is that Smith Whiteside has been a friend to so many for 95 years,” stated his family.
Come and help family and friends celebrate his 95th birthday on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 2:00 P.M. in the First United Methodist Church in Louisville, Mississippi.
