But instead of it being a day of renewal of vows, family and friends turned up at the Waldensia Baptist Church in Trelawny to salute the former cop.

A Christian man who was baptised on Christmas morning 1987, the life he lived brought out a wide cross section of the community.

"He was a caring and loving person to all," daughter-in-law Sylvia Smith said. "He loved his wife and children and was hardly ever absent from church."

Smith's body was buried in the buried in the Reserve Cemetery.
