It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of longtime Camp Humming Hills ranger Ed Smith. Ed passed away peacefully in his sleep early Tuesday morning after a prolonged illness.
Ed served our council with great spunk and dedication for eight years, and along with his wonderful wife, Wanda, made many beneficial changes to this camp property. He was a hard worker, who loved Humming Hills as if it were his own.
Ed was a friend to many of our staff, and his loss will certainly be felt both by us and our Girl Scout family. Personally, I will remember Ed's easy smile and kind heart. As many of you know, Ed always liked to pretend to be something of curmudgeon, but underneath that, he really just loved his camp and all of us, and he demonstrated this in hundreds of ways. I'll miss my dear friend and colleague. He was truly an original.
Please join us in thoughts and prayers for his family during this difficult time.
