Former City of Falls Church resident Robert B. Smith passed away in his home at Lusby, Md, on November 10, 2014. Rob, who was also known as “Smitty,” “Rob,” “Bob” and “Dr. X,”  was a longtime resident of Falls Church and graduated from George  Mason High School in 1969. He worked and retired from the Fairfax County Government where he was a facilities manager and acted as accountant on behalf of many.

After retiring from the county government, where he received numerous outstanding service awards, he took up permanent residency at Lusby where he enjoyed his daily life pursuing his passions of fishing, playing Chinese checkers, rooting for the Yankees and the Cowboys, working in his yard and entertaining.  He will always be remembered as a special man and loyal friend.

Rob is survived by his cherished dog Dodge and will be deeply missed by the countless friends he considered his family.
