Words on a page do not nearly or adequately describe E.E. "Gene" Smith! He was faithful to his family and friends and a faith-filled model of joy, generosity and kindness. He was always looking ahead to make sure his family and friends were safe and cared for, that they knew they were valued. He loved a good meal, and was ever looking for "just a little snack" to tide him over. He liked to be well dressed and consulted his sons and grandsons to be sure he was "in style". He was the model of fidelity to his Creator, his wife and children, his friends and the City of Orange. Gene Smith often said about Orange: "There are towns where people move and pass through. But in Orange, people stay." We will all miss his wonderful sense of humor and wit, his quick smile, that gorgeous head of hair that never thinned and especially, those twinkly blue eyes that never aged.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate contributions to Orange Little League or Holy Family School, Orange, in Gene's memory.
