Ann & Family, I was so sorry to read of Van´s passing. Rockville was blessed by his presence for many years. He was quick to smile, shake a hand, or help others. Know that I have you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. May God Bless.

Van, Jr. and family, I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Van. I always enjoyed my conversations with him. He was such an upstanding person and represented only the highest of values, a true Southern gentleman. He will definitely be missed in the community both professionally and personally. Deepest sympathy for the Smith Family. Billy Oltmann

I am so sorry to hear of Big Van's passing. He was a wonderful man. I have very fond memories being at Kiawah when he had the Company parties there. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time of sorrow.

The mention of Van Smith´s name brings up so many memories and connections, from adjacent houses at "Old Kiawah" (before resort development) to Rockville, the Regatta, and SIYC. He was so kind to me, and I count him as a friend. My condolences to the family; another good one gone to his reward. May God cover you in His blessings and grace.

So very sorry for your all's loss. "Big Van" was a great man and I was honored to work for him and the outstanding company he built. May he rest in peace with our Lord. Prayers and thoughts to the entire family.

Dear Ann and family, So very sad to hear that Van is gone; he was such a pleasant person. We would always talk when he was sitting on the porch and I was walking the front of Rockville. His contribution to sailing and the preservation of the SIOD fleet is immeasurable, and had a major impact on the Regatta. Van was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed.
