August 16th, 2016
As some of you already know, on Monday morning George lost the long, heroic battle with cancer that he had been fighting over the past 5 years. In his last days, he was kept comfortable at a Hospice facility surrounded by family and friends. George was a husband, a brother, one hell of a father, a ‘sheepdog’ and a MARINE.
Everyone that knew George knew the amount of personality he carried with him everywhere he went and the adventurous spirit he had. ...We all have memories with George that were one of kind, and sometimes slightly ridiculous. George asked that he not be mourned, but rather that family and friends remember the amazing times they with him, and to always do what George would do, no matter how ridiculous that may be.
To honor his wishes, there will be no formal memorial service. Rather, he asked that his remains take one last ride offshore aboard his boat the GUPPY, where he will be laid to rest at sea, at his favorite fishing spot to spend the rest of his days.
To all of the family and friends that were able visit with him over the past few months, thank you! The support you showed meant the world to him, and the rest of the family.

Cathy left school to work for Allstate Insurance Company while Lynn finished college and that led to a 38 year career with Allstate where she quickly became known as a valuble and dedicated employee. Cathy and Lynn were both involved in many community activities and traveled widely throughout the United States, Canada, Central and South America and the Caribbean before Cathy gave birth to Robert, the "new' love of her life on November 30, 1984. She was dedicated to many school activities as well as community work as Robert grew up, eventually graduating from the University of Florida.

She sadly helped bury her father, Robert a short time ago, but she also developed an even stronger bond with her mother who now helps bury her loving daughter. While Cathy left us early, she lived a full and happy life, and even while battling cancer in the last five years she was a loving and dedicated wife and mother She was a genuine friend and the people who met her or came to know her immediately knew she was someone special, someone who cared about them- someone who was willing to drop everything and help at any time. Her deepest regret in being called away early was that she will have to watch over her family and especially her grandson, from heaven. We will all miss her deeply.

          EUGENE SMITH
                                       Born: Nov. 28, 1949       Died: Jan. 8, 2018
Though Gene Smith never held elected office, his knowledge about the city earned him his nickname as “the ninth council member” — something the eight elected council members often referenced.  Smith had a passion for St. Petersburg, and an intense interest in every detail of city politics and policy, two subjects that often intertwined. Many times he was the only person at City Council committee meetings who wasn’t on staff. Smith could be found on the steps of city hall between meetings jovially
debating the issue of the day, often with a rumbling laugh punctuating a quick wit. 
Smith rarely spoke about his personal life.  Smith’s parents died when he was 4-years-old.  Smith came to live with the Gramigna family, who soon afterward moved from Philadelphia to St. Petersburg. He was raised as a brother to the three Gramigna sons. Their parents wanted Smith to keep his own name to honor his parents.
The rest of the family eventually relocated to Georgia and North Carolina. But Smith stayed in the city he loved.
Smith had been married and divorced three times. He had no children.
A graduate of Boca Ciega High School, Smith served in the Marines in Vietnam as part of a helicopter unit attached to the 1st Marine Division between 1970 and 1971, his cousin said. Smith later worked in the financial services department for Florida Power Corp. (now Duke Energy Florida), Florida Federal Savings and Goldman Sachs before starting his career as a freelance consultant in 2002, according to a biography provided by the Blake Collins Group.
He was proudest of his efforts to defeat the Lens, the first replacement proposed for the city’s iconic waterfront pier. After a long and contentious battle, voters rejected the idea in 2013. The Pier Park plan was approved in 2014 and construction recently started.
Elected officials and activists mourned a man who had been active in debating countless issues he considered important to the well being of St. Petersburg since he left corporate life back in 2002.

Jayne Uhlman MacCallum, died on 12/14/18. Jayne was from a family of eight siblings. Everyone of them in their own way was with her. She was surrounded by love. 
Jayne would have given you the shirt off of her back, the heart out of her chest if she thought it would help you in any way. She was special. 
She loved having morning coffee in bed with her cat and dog, she loved her animals. They were her family, I am sure they miss their "mom" too. They would lay in bed with her as she drank her morning coffee and watch the sunrise as it broke through the morning clouds over the intercoastal which ran behind her home on St. Petersburg beach. Patt, Jayne's sister, said the morning sunrise yesterday was bright red, gold and orange brilliantly covering the whole morning sky - it was a fitting display of glory in saying goodbye to her sister, and I might add, in welcoming Jayne home!  What a blessing!
Jayne did not want a funeral or an obituary. Her dear friend, Starlette (Dodie) Palmer Chapman, advised me of Jayne's passing.

"The day will come when my body will lie in a hospital, located in a hospital busily occupied with the living and the dying.
At a certain moment, a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine and don't call this my deathbed.
Let it be called the Bed of Life, and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives.
Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face of love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to the person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain.
Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he may live to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to a person who depends upon a machine to exist from week to week.
Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk.
Explore every corner of my brain.
Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that, someday, a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat, or a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against a window.
Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all my prejudice against my fellow man.
Give my sins to the devil and give my soul to God.
If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I I will live forever."
Rest in peace, Jimmy ...
