    Default It seems like he was quite a guy -- I regret thet I never met him.

    Here's the obituary of Leonard M. Smith. He apparently led a full and rewarding life. I like the last paragraph.

    Leonard Smith hated pointless bureaucracy, thoughtless inefficiency and bad ideas born of good intentions. He loved his wife, admired and respected his children and liked just about every dog he ever met. He will be greatly missed by those he loved and those who loved him. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you cancel your subscription to The New York Times. Leonard Smith would have thought that this obituary was about three paragraphs too long.

    That was real good Steve, thanks for posting it. Maybe he knew the meaning of Pallet stacking?

    Me might have, one line was

    He graduated from the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey, and then matriculated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was president of the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity and earned an engineering degree.
    He might have been behind early pallet stacking development.

    As a military man my favorite line was

    He joined the Army Air Corps after his first term at M.I.T., and attained the rank of colonel, but only on the telephone when facilitating personnel discharges and equipment requisitions.
    I wonder if his nickname was "RADAR."

    If a wire wasn't shorted it wouldn't work. What you have is an intermittent open!

    Electronics is smoke and magic. If you let the smoke out of something it doesn't work anymore - the magic is getting the smoke back in.

    Interesting that as we age, our newspaper reading habits change. Who reads the obits about someone they never knew before they were in their 50's? Now, its standard reading after the sports section.
