Upon graduation from the Mass College of Optometry, Dr. Smith established his practice in Oxford, MA.   Dr. Smith’s practice spanned many years. He particularly enjoyed the relationships formed with many patients throughout the years.  Dr. Smith enjoyed participating in the Oxford Lions Club Eye Clinics.

An outdoorsman, Dr. Smith truly enjoyed hunting and fishing.   In his younger years he was an avid beagler, often winning trophies in field trials.

He was a strong family man and took great pride in his family. He enjoyed spending time with them, especially at their summer home in Wolfeboro, NH.  He was truly happiest when all his family gathered for special occasions and holidays.
