Rothesay, NB; Royal Canadian Air Force, WW II; Dalhousie University, 1953; pediatrics. Died Sept. 7, 2018, aged 94. Survived by his wife Kaye, 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. “At 70, after 40 years of being Dr. Smith, he stopped and became Bob, volunteer art hanger and carpenter-at-large, garden club regular and museum tour guide. His legacy is 2 generations of babies who are healthier for having known him. His first patients in Saint John are in their 60s now, and his last patients would be in their 20s, but everyone is a little healthier — and some are alive —- because they went down those 5 steps on 107B Carmarthen Street, sat next to the large cartoon characters painted on the wall, and rode the old hobby horse until the doctor could see them.”
