Walter Arthur Smith Jr., 88, of Westminster, died May 5, 2015. Born February 20, 1927, in York, Pennsylvania, he was the beloved son of the late Mary Elizabeth Warner Schreiber of Baltimore, and the late Walter Arthur Smith Sr., of York, Pennsylvania. He was the longtime companion of Rosalie A. Mudgett. Walt lived for adventure. After serving six years in the United States Navy in World War II and Korea, he settled in Baltimore where he worked at Westinghouse until he retired in 1990. As a young adult, Walt raced in the American Motorcycle Association flat track circuit up and down the east coast. He was a member of the Baltimore Ramblers and loved riding motorcycles, especially his Honda Gold Wing. Walt's enjoyment extended in the air to fly his ultralight airplane. He was also a model airplane enthusiast and a member of the Westminster R/C Club. Walt had a great sense of humor and lived life to the fullest. He especially loved spending time with his family and the many wonderful friends he made throughout his life. Surviving are his son, Walter Arthur Smith III and wife Dotty Seabold Smith, and daughters Cindy Smith Reisberg and husband Jay Reisberg, and Kelly Smith Douglass and husband John Douglass. He is also survived by grandchildren Sean Smith, Stephanie Franklin Talbert, Christopher Reisberg, Lori Douglass Rhodes, and Wade Douglass, and great-granddaughter Jessica Talbert, and a sister Mary Lehman Sutherland of Hopewell, Massachusetts. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be sent to Carroll Hospice, 292 Stoner Avenue, Westminster, MD 21157.
