Claude Allen Smith (1934-2008)

It is with regret that we have heard of the passing of Allen, believed in the first week of September 2008. We would like to convey to Allen’s family, our sincere sympathy and our thanks to Allen for the way he has made such a difference in our lives. We will remember him every time we use our Easterly 30’s and Pacific 38’s as well as many of his other designs.
