If Holliston teacher Betty Smith was his wife...and Roger Smith, Jr., my HHS classmate (1977) was his son...then this dear man must have been very special. Mrs. Smith was a beloved teacher, and Roger, a beloved and brilliant classmate. May Mr. Roger Smith, Sr. ... rest in peace. My prayers are with his family.
