Stan Smith

Kind, loving, generous and happy-go-lucky. A true gentleman.

Friendly and willing to help. A mentor and gentle hand to guide.

Our dearest Dad inspired everyone he met. To us, forever our hero.

Stan served in the RAF during WWII, primarily as technical ground staff, fixing and fitting the communications equipment to Spitfires.

He narrowly escaped the bombings in the East End during the first days of the war, and watched as friends became victims in the next street.

Stan, 'Smudger' was called up aged 19, till war ended. Always based in the UK, The Shetlands and N Ireland, collaboration with the USAF, and servicemen from other forces, near and far.

Stan was a friend to everyone he met, whether during his working life, in the electricity supply industry, or when at play...with awards for service to sport, Football and refereeing spanning more than half his 101 years.

A great communicator...chatty to all, Stan had loads of interesting tales from a very long and initially, hard, life.

His brown eyes were filled with love for his late wife, his family and his smile greeted us to his very last day.

We are so lucky, and so grateful, that he was our Dad.
