Lisa & Esther & Families;

Our deepest and most sincere condolences go out to you all in the passing of Bill. Our many fond memories of the times we shared as kids growing up together and all the times our Families got together at your house and ours and all the Railroad Picnics. Bill was a special guy who devoted much of his life to others and I would love hearing him talk in that one of a kind voice; that you just knew it was Smitty without ever seeing him. Loved hearing him talk about the Railroad with Dad. I miss them both, but; I know they're sharing all those stories again. Our hearts go out to you... Arthur

I'm so sorry for your loss. I think I've known Bill since I was a baby. He was always very special to me. I have fond memories of sledding down the hill by his house. Band camp. The German Shepherd.

Condolences to Lisa, Esther, and the entire family on the passing of Bill. I have known Bill since the spring of 1960 as a co-worker on the railroad and we shared many memories of railroading, cars, the good memories when we lived beside the Smith family for a year. Memories of sitting out on the side porch on a warm evening, musical get togethers with the organ, helping Ronnie transpose music and playing the saxaphone. Fond memories from long ago from Jim and Joanne.
