Smith, Anthony F. (Tony)

SMITH, Anthony (Tony) -
The family of Anthony (Tony) Smith sadly announce his passing, at home, on October 16, 2019. He was in his 82nd year.

Husband of Elizabeth Smith, father of the late Michael Smith, Ben Smith (Marisa Martin) and Mary Anna Smith (John Hepworth) and grandfather to Sam, Charlie and Molly, Tony loved his family and was especially proud of his children and grandchildren. He was brother to Daphne Smith of Guelph.

Tony graduated from Mechanical Engineering at University of Toronto, did further studies in Hydraulic Engineering in the Netherlands and completed his PhD thesis on digitally-simulated hydrologic modelling at the University of Ottawa.
As a young engineer he participated in a four-year water resource study and training program in Trinidad. He worked for the Grand River Conservation Authority for most of his career as Director of Water Management. Tony said he enjoyed every day of his time with the GRCA. He loved the river and its dams and turbines!
He enjoyed camping with his family, sailing, canoeing and skiing. He played rugby as a young man and biked around many parts of Europe with his wife in retirement.

Our thanks go to the caregivers from Bayshore, to the LHIN, and to Dr. Tobin, the Guelph General and the Hamilton Neurological Center.

If desired, memorial donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, or the Diabetes Society of Canada would be appreciated.

A Celebration of Life reception will be announced soon.

A tree will be planted in memory of Anthony (Tony) Smith in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest, University of Guelph Arboretum. Dedication service, Sunday, September 20, 2020 at 2:30 pm.
