To clarify further, I have already set the permissions I desire. The problem is that I lose the ability to access the SMB share when my Mac is rebooted. The only way to restore functionality and accept my credentials is to turn off and turn back on File Sharing.

Haven't tried myself, but you might find what you were looking for here:
Or just google 'fstab automount mac os x'.
Well, I dug a little deeper into this. I have noticed this behavior had only begun after upgrading my primary hard drive to a solid state disk. It seems that there may be an issue with the order in which services start. The machine is just booting up too quickly. Which would explain why stopping and restarting the SMB service allows solves the problem until next reboot.
To test this further, I want to write a simple startup script that will sleep for 30-60sec before stopping and starting the SMB service with serveradmin. Thing is, I'm not familiar with creating startup scripts for OS X. For now, my workaround is manual.
