Smith From page 6 The city was facing many is- sues with vehicles on the Island. "Everyone was comifg to us about it," he said. "In 1976 we cre- ated a Vehicle Review Board and I was its first commissioner." The city went to the leaders at the state level. "We became the only city in the state of California that was allowed to limit the number and size of ve- hicles," he said. "For some people, this became a personal thing be- cause there was always the issue of 'I have mine, but you have to wait to getyour vehicle,'" he said. Smith said he thought the vehi- cle limits were good for the Island. He never regretted moving back to Catalina. "Everyone knows everyone else," he said. "It's a great place to take advantage of what nature has to offer." Throughout his life, Smith's passions remained in flying, camp- ing in the Island's interior, boating, fishing, kayaking and snorkeling and other sporting actvities. "I've always enjoyed camping on the Island," he said. "As a boy, I was in the Boy Scouts and we did a lot of camping." Smith earned just about every badge the organization had at the time and reached the honorable top rank of Eagle Scout. "Catalina is a great place to live," Smith said. Memorial services will be held at 11:30 a.m. today, Friday, Aug. 3 at the Catholic Church.
