Default LeRoy Smith

Did anyone know LeRoy Smith died. If it was posted on here I must have missed it. I was reading a post on Facebook and one of his nephews mentioned it. I dealt a lot with him back in the days of Smittys Pen Works.

Sorry to hear that. I've only been at this a short while, but the LeRoi Royale and Caballero have become two of my favorites. Just did a Caballero this morning, will post photo shortly. Seems fitting I did one today.

Thanks LeRoy, RIP.

Very sorry to hear about the passing of Smitty.

He was a consistenly positive influence here on IAP in many ways.

I have no doubt that his memory will persist vividly for many of us for a long time.

If you have a link to his obituary, I would appreciate it, Lin. Thank you.

Now I know I do not come here as often as I once had but something like this should have been announced if someone knew of this. Maybe it was and I missed it also. Leroy was a member and fixture of this site for quite some time. He and I locked up in some back and forth banter over the years. I found him to be a very educated man and was fun to jostle back and forth.

He had contributed much to this site over the years and his development of his business has left a mark on the pen making community which will live on for ever. If this to be true then RIP Smitty.

Here is the info that I found by doing a Google search for: Obituary Leroy Smith March 29th, 2018 . The first is the search itself. . The second and third are two items revealed in the search and the third is probably the most relevant.

https://www.google.ca/search?q=Obitu...BeHe8Aei76SADg

https://obittree.com/obituary/us/del...smith/3462475/

Leroy Smith Service Details - Dover, Delaware | Bennie Smith Funeral Home

There is provision for any/all of us to post a message of condolence on the funeral home website. I have done that.

I'm sorry to hear of his passing... never met him, never had any dealings with him other than here on IAP, but I liked him and enjoyed his posts.... scary thing is, he's only about 3 or 4 years older than me....

I've missed his postings and will miss him.
