Mr. Smart was born on April 20, 1947 in Tyrone, Oklahoma, to Cecil C. and Joy Dodson Smart. James was a graduate of Lake View High School, he lived most all his life in Tom Green county except for the time he served in the Army in Vietnam after training at Ft. Hood. James was known for his ability to build or repair anything and enjoyed taking things apart to study how they were made. At the age of 6 or 7 he received a Tonka truck and proceeded to dismantle it to a flat piece of sheet metal. When adults were shocked, he quickly reassembled it and it only wobbled a little! That interest and ability served him well in the Ethicon machine shop, state hospital and other local businesses where he utilized his machinist skills.
