PFC William Lewis Smallwood Obituary

US Army PFC William Allen Lewis Smallwood, age 19, of Clarksville, Tennessee, passed away Saturday, October 21, 2023, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.

Born July 5, 2004, in Morehead, Kentucky, he is survived by his wife, Veronica Vargas Smallwood, of Clarksville, Tennessee; his mother, Anastasha Lewis and husband Joseph Wilson of Morehead; three brothers, Cain Wilson of Morehead, Jeremiah Smallwood of Menifee County, and Hayden Skaggs of Carter County; maternal grandfather, Paul Lewis of Kingsport, Tennessee; mother and father-in-law, Pricilla and Isidro Vargas of Mt. Sterling; and loved ones, Dwayne and Linda Thacker Smallwood of Menifee County.

Additionally, he is survived by adopted siblings, Cindy Clifford, Michelle Ross, and Virginia, Angel, and Christopher Smallwood; as well as several aunts, uncles, cousins, and other extended family.

William was currently stationed at Ft. Campbell and was a 91B wheeled vehicle mechanic for the U.S. Army.

William’s love for his wife, family, friends, music, dancing and the outdoors was the core of who he was as a person. William had told family members that he knew from the moment he met his now wife, Veronica, that she was his one true love and that he was going to marry her because he said when he looked at her it was like the whole world was right in front of him, and he did just that. William’s free-spirited nature was evident in his zest for life. He embraced new experiences, sought out adventure, and encouraged others to do the same. His positive energy and enthusiasm were infectious to everyone around him.

He believed in living life to the fullest, never shying away from taking risks or pursuing his passions. William treasured the time spent with his loved ones, cherishing every moment and creating lasting memories together. His presence brought joy and happiness to those around him, leaving a lasting impact on their lives.

 He was preceded in death by his father, Harold James Blevins and maternal grandmother, Ada Ruth Sabon Lewis Hughes.
