Smitty was a fine uncle to myself and my Brother Gary. We spent many hours in the woods hunting rabbits along with other family members. Going rabbit hunting on opening day of the season became a family tradition. Smitty was a fine example for any young man growing up to follow and he wasn’t afraid to let me know if I was straying from the straight and narrow. What a great world this would be if there were more Smitty Applegarths. God Bless Him.

Smitty was a wonderful cousin and a fine gentleman. His life was a superb example of what a man should be. He was the last member of a fine family.
