Smith Jr., M.D., Dr. Harry Alexander (Alex) - Dallas  
Dr. Alex Smith, 88, of Dallas and Bear Lake, died Saturday, April 25, 2015, after a lengthy illness. Born in Wilkes-Barre on June 19, 1926, he was the eldest son of the late Dr. Harry A. and Ethel Nicholson Smith. He attended Harry Hillman Academy in Wilkes-Barre, graduated from Wyoming Seminary in the Class of 1944, and continued his education at Princeton University, Princeton, N.J., where he was a member of Campus Club. His college career was interrupted when he was called to serve his country during World War II. He served proudly in the United States Navy in the Pacific theater. Upon graduation from Princeton University, he matriculated at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, where he was a member of Phi Beta Pi fraternity. Following his completion of his medical degree, he continued his studies at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, and Lahey Clinic in orthopedics. After completing his orthopedic training, he returned to Wyoming Valley in 1959 and began practice with his father. He retired from orthopedic surgery in 1998 but continued as a consultant at the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center until 2008. Described recently by a fellow colleague, he was an uncommonly fine man and a dedicated physician. An avid fisherman, he was never more at ease than when he was on a trout stream or fishing for blues off the shores of Nantucket. He was a great gardener and the Smith family home at Bear Lake gave him the opportunity to express his love of nature. In addition to his parents, Dr. Smith was preceded in death by his sister, Helen Smith Barrow. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, the former Lillian Davis; three precious daughters, Rebecca Ferguson Smith, Bath, Maine; Amy Smith Johnson and husband, James V. Johnson, Cooperstown, N.Y.; and Terrell Smith Juth and husband David Michael Juth, Boyce, Va.; three grandchildren, Alexandria Davis Johnson, James V. Johnson Jr., and Nathan S. Juth; sister, Barbara Smith Bollman of Greenwich, Conn.; brother, Robert Harle Smith and his wife, Annelise of Alexandria, Va. The Smith family would like to express sincere appreciation to Dr. Durelle T. Scott, Dr. John Carey, and the administrative and nursing staff at Mercy Center Nursing Unit for their compassionate and dedicated care. Funeral services will be held Friday, May 1, at 11 a.m. in St. Clement and St. Peter's Church, 165 Hanover St., Wilkes-Barre. Friends may call Thursday, April 30, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Harold C.
