Smokey was a familiar face in Scituate to many, but a friend to most of those who knew him. He was a great guy and I know my father misses him very much. I can remember going up to Loudon NH with Smokey and Martha to watch the NASCAR races. He made sure we all woke up early and got up there together safely. I will remember him as a wonderful man that will leave many people sad, but glad they had the opportunity to know and love him. We will miss you very much, Greenbush is going to be different without you.
With the loss of Smokey Greenbush will never be the same. He will be missed by all in the neighborhood. The Alves Family will be in our prayers.
The lessons learned will now be tested, although you are not here,in our hearts,our minds and our daily tasks, your memory will rest.
I'm so sorry to hear about your father, it's very hard to lose a parent. My thoughts are with you and your family.
I know words won't take away the pain at a time like this, but our heart and love go out to the whole family.
Smokie will be greatly missed by the entire town.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Alves family.
My family sends along our sincere condolences.
I was really sorry to hear about your Dad, I know you'll miss him very much. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I met Smokey in the late 1970s. His humble kindness resonated through his smiling eyes from the moment I became acquainted with him through his wife, Martha. Although I did not see him often, each and every time I did he was sincere, sweet, and generous. If indeed there are wings given out up above, Smokey will be at the TOP of the list, smiling down on those he loves.
My deepest condolences to Martha and his children.
Smokey would always take me for rides in the loaders while my dad was busy. He taught me alot about the racing world and got me interested in racing. Smokey would always bring me home shirts of my favorite race car drivers. It was almost like he just knew who my favorite driver was. He also was one of my dads best friends at work and he was a teacher to my dad about fixing cars. i always saw him walking in front of the shop when my mom took us to eat lunch with dad when we were taking trips to scituate for some reason. i will miss him alot.
To Smokey's family and friends,
My sincere sympathy to you all. Smokey was a man of good character who
was admired and loved by all.He generously shared his gifts and talents with
many, and his legacy will surely live on. My condolences to you at this time.
surely live on.
I didnt know you Smokey thow I heard so much about you, the people that were lucky enough to have known you said you were the sweetest kindest person around that you would do anything for anyone and didn't want anything in return. I guess god needed a angellike you with him thats why he called you home God bless you'r family I'm sure they know you will be watching them from up above.
I am so sad that so many years have passed since I have talked to my boyhood friend. It does, however, only seem like yesterday, that we all gathered at Fitts' Grain Mill to play ball and just have some real clean fun. You were always very nice to my grandparents and my parents and I only know that you possessed a beautiful heart. Years cannot change that my dear friend. You were a good person then, and I know where I will see you again. Be forever at peace Tony. Luv ya.
I will always remember Smokey's bright smile. He always had time to say hello and ask about my kids and family. He was a loving teacher to my husband as well as a dear friend. He will be greatly missed by the Houghton family.
