A Tribute
by Kimberly Smith for Greg Smith, Air Force, Staff Sergeant, Served From 1966 to 1972, Honored by Eastern Shore Veterans Cemetery

To a man who was a devoted husband to his wife (Vicki) and her best friend in the journey they shared in this life. Greg was a supportive, loving and caring husband and father. He supported his family in every way all the days he had on this earth. He affected the lives of everyone he came in contact with. Many call him a mentor, friend or confidant. He did many great things in his 72 years he spent on this earth; he served his country as a Staff Sergeant in the US Air Force, he protected his community as a police officer, he was a Past Master in the Masonic Lodge, a member of the American Legion and loved spending time on his motorcycle. We greatly miss this friend, husband and father but will see him again one day. Our angel in heaven is watching over us now. You are gone but never forgotten and are always in our hearts.
