Obituary Via Frederick Funeral Home

Anthony Wayne Smallwood died peacefully at home on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, at the age of 79, with his beloved wife of 52 years by his side. Wayne was born in Lincoln County, Kentucky on June 23, 1942 and had many fond memories of that area and nearby Fishing Creek. Wayne moved to Cincinnati in 1951 and graduated from Hughes High School in 1960. He received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati. He enlisted in the Navy in 1968, serving as a Medical Corpsman at Subic Bay Naval Base in the Philippines. He worked for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a Forensic Chemist until he retired. Wayne will be dearly missed by his wife Carolyn (nee Hurrell) Smallwood; his son Scott Smallwood (Cathy) through whom he was blessed with his grandchildren Jessica, late Melissa, Elaina, Hayden and Ryan and great-grandchildren Charlee and Levi; and his daughter Jennifer (Christopher) Jung through whom he was blessed with his grandchildren Jacob, Anna, and Grace. Wayne is also survived by his siblings June Smallwood and Gary Smallwood. Wayne, who became a Christian at the age of 16, wrote in his Bible that Psalms 116 verses 8-9 should be his epitaph. “For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”
