Ralph Smith, avid Cal fan.
Love this picture of Ralph which his daughter, Janet Keeter Smith, posted on Facebook yesterday afternoon. It was taken at the Smith house in Alamo. I like the way one of Ralph’s Tiffany lamps is reflected in the window.
“This morning after 89 years on this Earth we lost our Dad and my Mom’s best friend. He was an amazing artist, athlete and family man. Our family is grateful for all the support over the last couple of years. Ralph Smith is now at peace.”

David Smith is feeling sad.
“Early this morning my Dad passed away after a long health battle at the age of 89. He and Mom were married for 61 years. As a demonstration of his toughness, he’d outlived the doctors predictions by a year. I like to think that he and death got tired of fighting and called a truce – he gets to rest now. Watch out though, He’ll be tougher in heaven!
