SMITH, Herbert Hartley Born: August 31, 1920, Youngstown, Alberta Died: June
30, 2007, Victoria, BC Survived by seven children James, Susan, Catherine,
Anne, Lydia, Denise and Frances, two siblings Beth and David, along with
nieces, nephews, grandchildren and countless friends and business friends.
Herb served as a Canadian Naval Officer, last rank of Lieutenant Colonel,
from 13 Sept. 1937 to 16 Mar. 1969. Some areas he served: HMCS Haida, HMCS
Micmac, HMCS Huron, and as Executive Officer, HMCS Cornwallis. Herb then
became a businessman and traveled, with his family, from Halifax NS to
Bermuda, BVI, Puerto Rico and other areas. In Victoria BC, he created
several beautiful properties, which will become a part of his legacy. His
soul was generous. He had a special quality of always seeing each individual
in a positive light, no matter what. Herb was loved by so many. He was also
an amazing artist in painting and a phenomenal naval athlete. After the
Navy, squash became a major accomplishment. Herb requested that his ashes be
scattered along with Hazel, his second wife, who died in March 2005, whom he
felt like a boat without a rudder. This was done on July 10 at Saxe Point a
beautiful, serene location, which they both dearly loved. He also did not
want to have a Memorial Service, but to let us think of him sailing on his
boat out in the Caribbean with his beloved Hazel. His last request was that
his children reunite that was done on his behalf. Memorial contributions may
be sent to a charity of your choice. "To live is to go on a journey; to die
is to come back home," Unknown 389751
