Long-Time August Group Member and Volunteer Dick Smith has passed away

RIP Dick Smith, a man who served many over the years in the quietest of ways with his volunteering and supporting others in job search as a member of The August Group. Dick lost his battle to brain cancer at Strong Palliative Care unit Saturday night at 8:00 p.m.

We want to let you know that Padre has become an angel. He passed away around 8:00pm Saturday night. His nurse, Dee, reassured us that he went peacefully and was not in any pain. We are so thankful for that.

We will keep everyone updated on information as soon as we all decide what is best for all of us.

Thank you so much for all your prayers, support, cards, stopping up to see him, sending him messages here on the Caring Bridge. We are so lucky to have all of you join us on this journey. It's not been an easy one but with all of you, it's been a little bit easier. I know how much he loved hearing all the kind words everyone wrote. He always would say is that for me? He was just in awe of the support behind him. 

I do plan on on to update this site, it's been so therapeutic to write in. I would hate to not be able to write in it and have all of us share our stories, fun times with Padre. He was my hero, and I will be so forever glad to have had this time with him. 

Love and Hugs,

Kristen. and the rest of the "A" team.  

Dick Smith, was a long time supporter and volunteer of The August Group. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor last September. He had surgery and chemotherapy for months. This past week the family placed Dick in palliative care at Strong.

If you wish to learn more or share your thoughts with Dick and his family, you can visit his support site. There have been more than 3600 remarks left on the site to sustain Dick, his wife and young adult children. Dick was a long term committed contributor to The August Group and its membership even when returning to work.

Dick became an integral part of The August Group making contributions in the quietest and humblest of manner. Dick was the keeper of the calendar for The August Group for I am guessing 5 years. You might not have been aware of his work as you referred to the calendar to initially find out when orientation or general sessions are held. How about the Job Fair and its preparation meetings and Power Networking Groups? Dick was always there in the background serving members and the public posting events of note for all members.

Dick was humble and modest in his contributions. He could be timely when requested. Not only did he update the calendar but he also was instrumental in the development of the Monday morning Spencerport Networking group. Dick was a good man, ever ready to help. When returning to work he did not resign, but remained fully engaged supporting the group.

The August Group had the good fortune to enjoy Dick's presence and service. Please keep Dick, and his family, in your thoughts and prayers.
