Joseph J. Smith, a longtime resident of Mahopac, NY passed away on Tuesday December 6, 2016 at the age of 83. He was born in Archbald, PA on October 10, 1933, the son of Joseph L. and Mary McGee Smith.

Joe earned his bachelor's degree in accounting from Kings College and served in the US Army. He retired as Director of Financial Reporting from IBM Corp. after a long and distinguished career with the company. He also served as a member of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). Joe was a parishioner of St. John The Evangelist Church in Mahopac and was a former Eucharistic Minister there, along with his wife, Jean.

On January 25, 1958 he married Jean E. Moore at St. Rose of Lima Church in Carbondale, PA.

He is also survived by his nieces, Jennifer and Melinda and his nephew David, who affectionately called him "UJ", as well as many nieces and nephews living out of the area, with whom he greatly enjoyed seeing when they were able to get together at family gatherings.

Visiting will be held on Thursday December 8 and Friday December 9 from 5-8 pm each day at Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home.
