SMITH, Lewis Conrad ''Rad`` III

Lewis Conrad ''Rad`` Smith III, beloved son-in-law of Georgette Auerbach Koopman, of West Hartford, died Monday (Dec. 7, 1998) in Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was being treated for cancer. Born in Iowa City, IA, in 1947, he was the devoted husband of Rena Beatrice Koopman of Newton, MA, and formerly of West Hartford, for almost 20 years, and the loving father of Alexandra Koopman and Jordan Auerbach. He also leaves his parents, Lewis and Mary (King) Smith Jr. of Cortland, NY; and two sisters, Emily and Rebecca. Rad was brought up in St. Cloud, MN, where he attended high school. He graduated from Harvard College magna cum laude, did graduate work in English at the University of Virginia, and earned a master's degree in business administration at Harvard University in 1977, and then joined Teradyne Inc. in Boston, MA. Rad retired from Teradyne Inc., in 1992 to devote more time to his family, to complete the work on their cottage in Maine and to further pursue his love of writing. Rad was an accomplished poet and had his work published in the Spoon River Poetry Review, Prairie Schooner, and the Antigonish Review. His most recent book, Distant Early Warning, will be published this spring. While at Harvard he studied with the renowned poetess, Elizabeth Bishop. He was a collector and expert on Japanese samurai swords and other Oriental art objects. Rad was a member of the board of directors at the Japan Society in Boston and co-chair of the friends of Asiatic Art at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and a trustee of the Greater Lovell Land Trust in Maine. The memorial service was December 10, at the Story Chapel at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, with the Rev. Anne Fowler officiating. Burial services were conducted by Rabbi Stephen Fuchs at Beth Israel Cemetery, Hartford. Contributions may be made to the Wellness Community, 1320 Center Street, Newton Center, MA 02459.
