Born January 17, 1929 in Lewistown, he was the son of the late Sylvester and Beulah G. (Hancock) Smith. In addition to his parents, Bill was preceded in death by his granddaughter Victoria (Tori) Fisher.
Bill is survived by his loving wife, Mildred (Espigh) Smith, whom he married on December 29, 1951, children, Sherry Green, and husband Jack, of Loudon, TN, Michael Smith of Lewistown, Deborah Fisher and husband Doug, all of Lewistown, Grandchildren, Coby Huff and wife Tifaney, of Mechanicsburg, Paul Green and wife Helen, of Ocoee, FL, Denise Green-Fry, of Chattanooga, TN, and Jenny Green-Close and husband William of Highland, CA, and great-grandchildren; Jordan and Parker Green, Alexandria Culp, Taylor and Gavin Close, Landen Huff.

Mid, Mike , Deb and family,
I’m so sorry for your loss. Mom and dad enjoyed Bill, and you Mid, very much! He was a good friend to both of them. I remember Bill and dad going fishing and how he liked to joke with mom. I often saw Bill on my trips home to Lewistown as we always had to have a Hoagie and Hartley’s from the store. My heartfelt condolences.
