Jack Smith - an appreciation

Jack Smith, treasurer of the former Dundee West Liberal Association, and long-time resident of Windsor Terrace on Perth Road, has passed away in his 90th year.

Jack was not just a stalwart of the Liberals in Dundee for many years, he had a successful business career in John Smith (Fruit Importers) Ltd of Dundee, was an officer in the Royal Navy during World War Two, and was a long-standing elder of Meadowside St Paul's Church.

But above all, Jack was a gentleman, with a sharp mind and always good company.    I  pass on my condolences to his wife Kathleen (Dundee Liberal Democrats' Honorary President) and his sons Walter and Alistair and daughter Alison.
