Edward Herbert Smith, PEng, NBLS, FEC
1940-2019
Edward Herbert Smith, 78, of Fredericton, NB, after a long
battle with cancer, died peacefully at Hospice House with his wife of
57 years and family by his side. He was born September 15,
1940, in Fredericton Junction, NB to Leon and Amy (Hearne)
Smith. Edward grew up in Beaverdam, NB, and like many of his
generation in rural New Brunswick, he attended school at the one room
schoolhouse before moving on to Sunbury West Regional High
School. There he met Ann (MacDonald), and they married in
1962.
Edward (Ed) attended the University of New Brunswick (UNB)
and graduated from the second ever class of Surveying Engineering in
1963. He became both a Professional Engineer and a New
Brunswick Land Surveyor in 1965. His career included
Department of Natural Resources, Sub-Surface Surveys, and later joined
Associated Designers and Inspectors (ADI) in 1966, where he worked for
22 years. In 1988, he co-founded Geoplan Consultants, now
part of WSP.
Professionally, in addition to serving on their many
committees and Councils, Ed was President of the New Brunswick Land
Surveyors (NBLS) in 1992, and the Association of Professional
Engineers of New Brunswick (now APEGNB) in 1996. In
recognition for his service to the Engineering Profession, in 2012 Ed
received the CC Kirby Award, APEGNB’s highest honour, as
well as the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. He
also served as Chair of the APEGNB Foundation for Education for many
years.
Ed was active in the community of Fredericton and believed in
doing his part. For many years he was a member of the
Fredericton YMCA and the « Men’s Health
Club ». He directed four of the Y’s capital
campaigns and was a member of its Board of Directors. He
chaired fundraising for the Corporate Fund of the United Way, and a
« Cancer Care Campaign » for the Chalmers Regional Hospital
Foundation. He was a member of the Chalmers Regional
Hospital Foundation Board of Directors from 1992- 2012. In
addition, Ed was the City of Fredericton representative on the Board
of the Fredericton Airport Authority for two terms. In
recognition of his Community Service, Ed received APEGNB’s
Citizenship Award.
One of Ed’s passions was flying. He was
active in the Fredericton Flying Club and served as its President in
1971. He served as Atlantic Zone Director and later National
Chairman of the Royal Canadian Flying Clubs Association and enjoyed
travels with Ann to make many friends across the
country.
One the places that Ed was fond of was the hunting camp Yoho
Lodge in York County where his family had been hunting, fishing and
cutting wood since the early 1900s. It was there the
« the call of the wild » rekindled every fall and where Ed
introduced his lifelong friends and classmates to this cherished
annual get together and introduced many friends to this special
camaraderie, including a second and now third generation.
For well over fifty (50) years, many rousing stories, jokes, and
political debates, and solving of the world’s problems
occurred at the Lodge and around the dinner table.
Ed enjoyed his time every spring at the Granite Hill
sugarbush. Along with all the « sapsuckers », the
gang took special pride in their high quality Maple Syrup that has
been exported to many places around the globe, but no place as
important as the tables of any grandchildren or their
families.
Ed is survived by his wife, Ann; daughters Laureen Smith
(Andrew) and Karen Robertson (Ian); son Brent (Kathy); 7
grandchildren, Adam and Ellery Smith, Hannah and Ewan Robertson,
Joshua, Holly and Mary Smith; two sisters, Joan Moore (Dennis) and
Norma McFarlane (Ira); 3 sisters-in-law, Marilyn Wishart (John),
Sheryl Darrow (David), Leah MacDonald (Elmo); brother-in-law, The Rev.
Dean MacDonald (Louise) plus several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Preceded in death by his parents; nephew Leary Dean Moore;
mother-in-law, Iris MacDonald; and brothers-in-law, Ira McFarlane and
Elmo MacDonald.
The family will receive friends and relatives at
McAdam’s Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton, NB, on

service will be held at Christ Church Cathedral, 803 Brunswick Street
on Friday, August 23 at 3 pm. The Rev. Canon Tom Smith will
