If a man can be measured by his relationships and offspring then Bob was truly a rich and good man. We love you Norm, Elizabeth, David, Penelope, and William. Our deepest condolences to you, Mary, your brother, and the extended family.

Bob Smith was a good man and one of the most supportive parents I have known in my 37 years as an educator. He and Mary Elizabeth raised two amazing sons. He will be missed, and I was both honored and blessed to know him. - Les Conley
