Smith left a legacy

I wanted to thank Tammy Marashlian (“‘Everyday hero’ celebration set for Sunday,” Dec. 19) for shedding some light on Ron Smith and the great way his “community” is honoring him. I hope the idea becomes an annual event, as Smith’s wife, Beth, stated in the article.

I’m from the other “community” Smith still belongs to; the Crespi Community.

I am the current chairman of the Alumni Hall of Fame event.

I was one of many alums who voted to induct Smith last October.

In hindsight, I think there was a larger vote cast in his favor that guided us to do it this year.  

Smith’s acceptance speech at the event was the essence of Marashlian’s story.

Honored as an all-American high school athlete, he spoke mostly of God, family and friends.  

It seems to me Smith’s legacy will be as an all-American average guy who left an indelible impression on those who crossed his path.

That’s a record — a goal — for all of us to try to accomplish.

Happy holidays and a healthy new year.
