CHESTERTOWN — William Woods Smyth Jr. passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2011, in Chestertown at the age of 92.

A longtime resident of Potomac, Md., he moved to Chestertown in 2004 to reside at Heron Point. His parents were Capt. William Smyth, USN, and Gertrude Fraser Smyth.
He married Placid Thompson Kerrick, the daughter of another Navy captain, in April 1942. His wife and a daughter, Kerry, preceded him in death.

Surviving him are his son, William, daughter-in-law Cheryl, and grandchildren Alexander and Bethany, all of Pasco, Wash.

Bill, as he was usually called, was born in the District of Columbia, Feb. 12, 1919. He had many memories of traveling with his parents throughout the country, visiting his father at various posts and commands, but the most memorable was being on the battleship USS Tennessee at age 15, when his father was in command. Captain Smyth died very suddenly, and Bill witnessed his burial at sea.

Because of his father's career, Bill attended several schools across the country. He attended Lehigh University from 1937 to 1940, when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy.

Anxious to obtain a commission in the Navy prior to World War II, he applied and was accepted into the newly established Navy V7 program as a reserve midshipman. This, and marriage, prevented his return to Lehigh to complete an engineering degree.

After being commissioned as an ensign, his first ship assignment was on the USS Maryland, one of the battleships attacked at Pearl Harbor. After returning to the mainland, where the Maryland was to be repaired, he was transferred to sub-chaser school, then to the South Atlantic for the anti-submarine campaign.

Later, he sailed a patrol craft escort across the Pacific to participate in the Philippines campaign. He remained in the Navy Reserve after World War II, and retired as a Commander, USNR, after 22 years of service. He continued his love for the Navy throughout his life, and contributed to several projects to preserve its history for museums and displays.

From 1949 to 2004, he was a loan officer and vice president of Walker and Dunlop, a mortgage banking company, with commercial projects in many parts of the country. He led a very active life and especially enjoyed improvement projects around his home, raising and showing Springer Spaniels, and travelling. After moving to Chestertown, he enjoyed sharing his World War II Navy experiences in several schools and classrooms.
