Larry D. Smith

Age 63, of Milford, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Larry won his battle with pancreatic cancer, but sadly succumbed to an underlying lung condition which he fought to the end.

He was presently employed by the Delaware Veterans Home in Milford where he thoroughly enjoyed the companionship of his co workers and the residents.

Larry also enjoyed spending his leisure time in his workshop tinkering and fixing many things for friends and family.
