Carlus Dale Smith died on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at a local hospital.

Carlus Dale Smith was born on October 5, 1963 to Jerry Don Smith and Lydia Cantu Smith in San Saba, Texas. He graduated from San Saba High School in 1982. After graduation he moved to Cross Plains and briefly worked on a ranch. In 1983 he moved to Belton with his family and went to work at Wilsonart. He left Wilsonart when he purchased Crow’s Burger from its original owner. He later sold to family who still own the business today. Carlus was an entrepreneur at heart and had many business adventures over the years. His last adventure would be Park Street Burgers in Gatesville that opened January 19, 2017. Carlus will forever be remembered for his smile, his love to cook, eat, and share food, but mostly for his servants heart. Heaven has surely gained an angel.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Survivors include his wife, Jenifer Smith; three daughters, Chelsea Smith, Sarah Puckett, and Kaitlyn Puckett; three sons, Ben Jones and wife Stephanie, Sam Jones and wife Jalesa, and Nate Jones; sister, Karen Martinez and husband Jesse; along with seven grandchildren, Braylon, Aiden, Jasper, Kimber, Jolene, Kai, and January.

For me, no trip to Gatesville could ever be considered complete without a stop at Park St. Yes the burgers are always wonderful but whenever Carlus was there it felt more like a home coming to an old friend. He had one of the warmest smiles and just radiated joy and happiness. He was appreciated and will be missed. Gatesville's loss is Heavens gain.
