Marion Smith of McConnellstown, and Paul K. Smith, at whose home he died. He is also survived by two sisters, Hattie, wife of John Ferral of Washington D. C., and Mrs. Margaret Bardell, of Williamsburg, and one brother, Ed Smith, of the Piney Creek section.
Mr. Smith was a member of the Williamsburg Lutheran church and before retiring had served for 18 years as janitor of the Williamsburg schools.
