Epsom, NH – Henry M. Smith, 85 of Epsom, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, June 2 at Epsom Healthcare Center.
Born on August 14, 1931 in Greenwich, Ct., he was the son of the late William and Laura (Crowther) Smith.

Henry was a long time member of the American Legion and a Mason of 52 years. He enjoyed woodworking, carpentry, fishing and trips to the beach and camping with his family.
