DR. Smith was a wonderful doctor for our family. I was 14 yrs. old at the time of him leaving & he was always caring, kind & humble with his big SMILE. Thank you dr.SMITH! God has a angel in heaven. Maynard Family(DEBBIE DRAke now STRAHL)

John Smith was always the caring, smiling gentleman. I remember his jokes and grin that was often accompanied by a pipe. His love for his family will always be remembered.

A great friend, we had great moments together and was like a father and grandfather to my children. He will greatly be miss by us all.

To the family, It is with deep sorrow that I wish I could be in Greenfield today. Doc Smith was my doctor from the time I was 10 or 11 years old and am now 72. He was my Ben Casey I loved him so much. Even though I am in Florida now we have always remained connected. We always had long talks about flying and traveling as I worked for USAir Ways for many years. I will always be grateful to Doc Smith and Dr. Melroy for thyroid surgery they did when I was 16 years old. I'm sure they saved my...

To Joe and family so sorry to hear the passing of your father your family is in our thoughts and prayers

What a wonderful man and wonderful family. Dr. Smith was a role model for me for authenticity and character (and he could be a character!). I enjoyed his irreverent sense of humor as a Boy Scout leader. We had fun times playing with him in the German Band with his lederhosen and caroling in the cold snow in a brass band every Christmas. I am glad he had a long life and especially glad I had the chance to know him and his family.

Such a caring and giving man. I remember my mother talking about him writing "Paid in Full" on a bill one Christmas. Also how special he was to a patient at Community East.
