"This is Pete. We lost him."
It is with great sadness we announce that Edward Richard Smith, Jr, "Rich" to his friends passed away on June 5, 2021, at the age of 78 years. He will be remembered by his two sons, Tom and Chuck (Amy) Smith as well as his sisters Sally Spencer, Susan Gallagher, his many nieces and nephews and grandchildren Nico, Kayla, Krystal, Sebastian, Taylor and Gabriella.
A proud San Franciscan and veteran of the United States Marine Corp, Rich was a former altar boy at Star of the Sea Parish in SF and retired from PG&E after 35 years as a meter repair technician and union shop steward. Known for his love of movies and music his loss leaves a tremendous hole in our hearts.
