Obituary

Douglas Frank Smith of Meredith NH known to some as Dougie, Smitty, Pop, Papa, and Grandpa, passed away after a long battle with COPD at 67 years old with his daughter and son by his side February 10th 2020 at Lakes Region General Hospital.

Doug was born on February 28th 1952 to Dolores and Cecil Smith of Meredith NH. Douglas graduated from Inter Lakes High School in 1970 and after high school joined the United States Army attaining the rank of Sergeant after 14 years of overall service. When his active duty requirements in the Army were fulfilled, he became an EMT while staying enrolled in the Army Reserve. His work as an EMT spanned many years working for Kemp-Symonds as well as Stewarts Ambulance Services. He also joined the Meredith Fire Department and in 1985 graduated the NH Police Academy becoming a Patrolman for the New Hampton Police Department. Doug devoted many years to public service in the Lakes Region area and eventually retired as Deputy Chief of the New Hampton Fire Department. Following his time as a police officer he worked as a Road Agent for the Town of New Hampton for many years also. Throughout his many years of service to the communities he was a part of he earned multiple certifications in many areas in Emergency Services including but not limited to Rescue Diving and Forestry.

The free time he was able to find when not working or on a fire call was centered around his family and outdoor activities. He loved camping, boating, was an avid fisherman and always loved riding motorcycles his entire life. Doug also had a real affection for wood working, refurbishing boats, and enjoyed building models car and eventually replicas of various local Fire Stations. Out of all of the things Doug held close to his heart his were grandchildren were his most prized possession, he will miss them dearly.

He is survived by his mother Dolores Smith, brothers Carl & Donald Smith, son Matthew Smith, daughter Allison Stickney, as well as four grandchildren Alex, Hunter, Mason, and Elizabeth.

We all know that Doug was a great man! One of my funniest ambulance moments was when we had just ordered pizza and we got a call before we could get back to K-S to eat it. The entire ambulance smelt of pizza. I remember doing transfers to Mary Hitchcock hospital with Doug. We would have great conversation on the way home. May peace be with the family. He will always have a spot in my heart.
