A memorial service for actor Rearcous Smith, 34, who died Tuesday, will be in the Springer Opera House at 5:30 p.m. Monday. He died of pneumonia.
Smith, originally from Macon, graduated from Columbus State University last year, and appeared on the Springer, CSU and Liberty Theatre stages.
Though never in a leading actor, he was a favorite teacher of the students in the Springer Theater Academy, and of other actors.
Springer producing artistic director Paul Pierce and associate artistic director Ron Anderson both said they had never met an actor who was always smiling, always optimistic and was never angry.
