I have good memories of the Smeltzer family in Edmonton. Unfortunately I will be out of town for the service later in August and will not be able to catch up with you, Sheila. Our respective fathers' lives followed a similar administrative path in Edmonton Public Schools. My sincere condolences to you and Gerry and your families. Diane (Hollingsworth) Anderson, Victoria.

I read with fond remembrance Mr. Smeltzer's obituary.

I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge what a marvelous and profound impact he made on me since he taught Grade X1 Social Studies at Ross Sheppard Composite High School in the academic year 1959-60. While Sheila was in the same Grade, I cannot recall whether she took Social from her father in the same class.

We were studying the unification of Germany in the 19th Century, and in two back-to-back classes, Mr. Smeltzer demonstrated to me the importance of critical thinking. Over the last 50 years I have countlessly recounted to others how he did it and how it has impacted me.

I owe very much of any success I may have had, academically and professionally, to those two lessons in particular.

I was aware of his move into administration shortly thereafter, and was glad for him, but at the same time regretted the loss for those students who missed having the same opportunity to learn from him.

My condolences.
