Longtime state Senator Jerry L. Smith, who had been retired from the Oklahoma Legislature for a decade, died Friday. He was 71.

Funeral services are pending with Ninde Brookside.

Smith was forced to give up his Senate District 39 seat in Tulsa County in 2004 because of term limits. The Republican lawmaker and attorney first served in the Legislature in 1972 as a House member representing District 76.

Smith was the husband of Sally Howe Smith, who is the Tulsa County Court Clerk.

    God bless Sen. Jerry Smith and his family. It was a pleasure to cover Sen. Smith for OETA News at the State Capitol. Sen. Smith was an outstanding pubic servant and gentleman.
