Harrison Arthur “Art” Jackson, age 76, of Maryville, Tennessee, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on Monday, September 13, 2021. He is preceded in death by beloved son Michael “Mike” Jackson, his father and mother Robert S Jackson and Mamie L Jackson Paine, sisters Barbara Jackson Soeurt and Jennie Jackson Fagg, and brother Vernon Jackson. He is survived by his son Steve Jackson (Monique), daughter Teresa Jackson Morton (David), ex-wife Carolyn Jackson, grandsons Shane and Chase Jackson, granddaughters Elizabeth and Emily Morton and Macy Jackson, and special friend Kay Carter and her dog Gabby. Art also leaves behind many beloved nieces and nephews as well as many dear friends and long-time co-workers. A 1962 graduate of Everett High school, Art enjoyed a life-long career in the hardware business. He began his career selling hardware for Belknap Hardware, and soon thereafter purchased an interest in a hardware store in Rock Springs, Georgia, where he managed the business for a short time. Art most recently enjoyed a 45-year career as a salesman for House Hasson Hardware, where he won the “Million Dollar Sales” award numerous times. Art retired from House Hasson Hardware in January 2018. Even after retirement he stayed in close contact with many of his customers. Art will be remembered as a man who loved his family with all his heart and would do anything to help his fellow man. He was a dedicated father who working tirelessly to provide for his family. He had a compassionate heart and a strong faith and was a member of Springview Baptist Church. He enjoyed spending time with family and always looked forward to the annual Labor Day gathering at his cabin on the lake. Art most enjoyed providing for and helping his family and although he loved joking and teasing family members, he was also the first to arrive with a hug in time of sorrow or a helping hand in time of need and never parted ways without a hug and an “I love you”. The family will receive friends from 5-7 p.m. at Smith Mortuary (Trinity Chapel) on Monday, September 20, 2021, followed by a memorial service at 7 p.m. Pastor Ben Ward of Springview Baptist Church will officiate at the memorial service on Monday evening, and at the graveside service at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at Grandview Cemetery. Art had recently joined the Springview Blessing Box committee providing food for the community, therefore the family requests that any memorial contributions in Art’s name be made to the Blessing Box ministry of Springview Baptist Church, 4220 US Highway 411 South Maryville, TN 37801.
