Greig always made us feel welcome from the day the we moved in across the street twenty years ago to every time that we returned to Irvington no matter how long we were gone. We will miss seeing him and talking with him.

I will always remember Greig as having a smile on his face and a good joke to make me smile and laugh. He was a wonderful person with a sweet soul. I have many memories of hanging out with him in high school and then always seeing him around town or at the local grocery store. He was an honest, caring & down to earth friend that always followed his passion of the theater. Rest easy in peace my friend.

I can’t recall when or where nor the specific circumstances that I first met Duncan, who to me was Greg in my memory. I know it was a long time ago when I was still a kid and he was still even six years younger than me. He was never a little kid to me though. Neither in his size or his intellect, interest or in his heart. He made a strong impression on me. Our paths only crossed a small number of times during our lives but I can recall each one as a poignant moment that stays with me. We were both drawn to the theater and to music. He saw many productions that I performed in and always made me feel that I was an inspiration to him as I also remembered older students in Irvington being for me.
Our paths never really crossed as it did with many of our, unbeknownst to us, common friends in the theater world but we always stopped on Main Street in Irvington to have a chat when we saw each other or we always took the opportunity to sit together on the train if we were headed in or out of the town at the same time. He was a smart, kind, funny, always interesting man and I regret never having gotten the chance or taken the opportunity to know him better. I think we would have been good friends. In a way we were. It’s amazing the positive affect one can have on other’s lives without knowing it, doing so little. If only we were all a little more like Duncan Greig Smith. I will always think of him when I am on Main Street in Irvington where I first met him and his wonderful dad. The image I hold in my mind is of the two of them together after some theater or music event at either the Town Hall or the Community Rec. center. They were hand and hand, Greig as a boy looking up at his big dad proudly, his dad looking at him the same way, walking together with their infectious smiles. What a grand positive presence they were together and that’s how they will remain in my memory.
My wishes for the best of memories and love to his family and friends.

So many of us remember him as Smitty. He was a guy that could make anyone laugh. I recall reconnecting at an IHS reunion and then sharing memories on social media. He was a bright light. He will shine on from above now.
