Former ORS Engineer Smith Mourned
Justin H. Smith, a mechanical engineer with the Office of Research Facilities' Division of Property Management who had worked in the Clinical Center, died on Sept. 14 of congestive heart failure at Beebe Medical Center in Lewes, Del. He was 74.
Paul Hawver, long-time project officer at NIH and a personal friend, notes that Smith worked on virtually all the buildings on campus at one time or another in his career. In the process he touched many people with his professional expertise, his joyful spirit and his willingness to share both. Says Hawver, "Justin and Neal Hunt, another Clinical Center engineer, were like engineering fathers to me. I hope I can pass on to others all the knowledge they passed on to me through the years."
Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Kathleen; two daughters, Celine Evans of Harrisburg, Pa., and Colleen Thomas of Fairbanks, Alaska; and five grandchildren. Contributions may be made to the American Heart Association in Smith's name.
