Guestbook for Dr. Martin J. Smith
sign guestbook


As a running partner early every summer morning in the early 1970s, Marty Smith became my first adult friend. He was a wise, soft-spoken counsel and an exemplar of purposeful existence, caring humanism, and life-affirming humor. I came to appreciate his friendship more deeply with every passing year. It is a privilege to cherish the memory of our long acquaintance.

Dear Alex and Rob--wishing you well in this time of loss. I did not know your father well, but he was so decent in the interactions we had. My dad valued very much your father as a colleague for many years. Best to you and your family.

Sorry to hear of Martin's passing. We became good fiends meeting with him at Syl's Place every Friday evening. He never missed a Friday and neither did I and my sister Marilyn also came many times. We visited at his home and he also visited Marilyn's and my home.
