Dennis Smith

Pawtucket, R.I.

 

Bob Morris remembers Dennis Smith simply as a good neighbor. Although he had no children of his own, Smith would frequently bring gifts over to Morris's two childrena small gadget here and there,M&Msand other candy.

"Dennis was very kind to my kids," Morris said.

Morris, who has lived next door to the Smith family in Pawtucket for 11 years, said he thought his friend had gotten a ticket for Thursday night's Great White show only at the last minute.

"Kind of ironic," Morris said.

Smith worked odd jobs, Morris said, and was always able to offer a hand, whether it was helping his father build cabinets or assisting a neighbor in need.

"Always there to help you," Morris said.
