In reply to: Here's what i've seen 's message, "I've heard that Frankie Smith, singer of classic 1981 hit "Double Dutch Bus," passed away yestertday" on Tuesday, March 12, 07:51:36am


It is with a heavy and unprepared heart that I inform family, friends and fans that my dad, Frankie Smith passed from this life on March 8th 2019 in his lifelong home in Philadelphia PA.
The world knew him as Frankie "Double Dutch Bus" Smith but for me, he is and will always be my daddy. I'm truly grateful for the 44 years I had my father, who was my best and loyal friend as well as one of my spiritual teachers. My dad was pure love and I know he loved the Lord. My family and I find comfort in knowing he is with his heavenly father and the love of his life his mom my grandmother "Mimi", Mary Josephine Smith.
I will be sharing more posts and updates on my dad's foundation as well as a future celebration of his life. YES! Everyone will be invited to the memorial and celebration. Love you all for loving him and he certainly loved you all for your years of support. With this love I will be taking my dads name and his love of performing into the future through his foundation.
Many Blessings.
Vashon "Indy" Smith
