Smith, of Richmond, Bryson M. Smith, of Chesapeake, and Nikkia McCalla, of Maryland. His humor will be remembered by his paternal grandmother, Joyce C. Carney (Ben), of Newport News, and maternal grandmother, Helen C. Ashburn, of Portsmouth; paternal great-grandfather, James R. Bagner Jr. (Louise) and Emanuel Smith, of Suffolk; godparents, Ernest and Annie Reid.   A servant and humanitarian by nature, Trooper Nathan-Michael Smith will be missed.
