SEBEC VILLAGE - Harold "Hap" Smith, 84, passed away Nov. 10, 2007, with his family by his side at a Bangor hospital. He was born Dec. 11, 1922, in Malden, Mass. Hap had lived in Sebec Village most of his life, where he was well known for his beautiful flowers, which he lovingly cared for every summer. He was often seen out patrolling his oak ridge overlooking Sebec Lake. He was a man who loved to fish his secret holes in the mountains, as well as explore the great outdoors. Hap always had to have a project in progress, which he always took great pride in overseeing. He was a very generous man, who supported many local causes, as well as extending a helping hand to those in need. He rose from very humble beginnings, as he was on his own at age 14 and became a successful entrepreneur. He is survived by and will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 59 years, Jeanne of Sebec Village; a son, Alan Smith and his wife, Debbie, of Sebec Village; three daughters, Holly Tasker of Bangor, Linda Mountford and her husband, Scott, and their daughter, Andrea, all of York and Cherie Smith of Titusville, Fla.; his grandchildren, Suzanne (Britton) McElvain and her husband, David, and their children, Catherine and D.J., all of Levant, Samantha (Smith) Greenlaw and her husband, Jason, and their children, Lucas and Emily, all of Sebec Village and Garrett Smith and his wife, Erin, and their daughter, Ella, all of Dover-Foxcroft; his mother-in-law, Leona Craw-ford of Dover-Foxcroft; and many special friends. He was predeceased by his beautiful daughter, Angela Smith; and his precious granddaughter, Jennifer Smith. A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at Sebec Village Community Christian Church, Sebec Village, with Pastor Bea Violette officiating. After the service friends and family are invited to share fellowship and stories at the Sebec Reading Room, Sebec Village.
