  • A sad time for the Sportsman

    It's my sad duty to announced that Jeff Smith, a moderator on's forums, died on Friday, Dec. 27, in his home in Kannapolis.

    Jeff, who was known as 'Creek07' on the forums, was diagnosed with esophogeal cancer in October. By the time of the diagnosis, the cancer was at an advanced stage. According to Jeff Huggins, the moderator known as 'Viperx4', doctors treated Smith for about six weeks before sending him home last month to be cared for by Hospice.

    Jeff, 43, is survived by his wife, Krista, and a daughter, Emily Nicole.

    Visitation will be on Monday, Dec. 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Whitley's Funeral Home in Kannapolis. The service will be Tuesday, Dec. 31, at 11 a.m. at Second Presybterian Church in Kannapolis, where he was an elder.

    Our prayers go out to his family and friends.
