  1. Our sympathy and prayers for the great family of this great man. A corner stone of the Shrewsbury community.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Smitty. We had a lot of fun at the toll plaza and state maintenance garage. We also fished a lot together. My friend will be missed. Prayers for the family.
