Joseph H. “Harold” Smith, 94, passed away peacefully on October 11, 2015 after a brief illness.

Born on February 28, 1921 in Yorkshire, England, Harold later moved to Akron in 1946. He was proud of his English heritage and of becoming an American Citizen in 1958.

He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Betty; sons, William H. and Michael J. (Susan); grandsons, Robert and Taylor; niece, Judith Shiplett; and other relatives and friends.
