Rev. Dr. Harold C. Smith
January 11, 1934 – March 21, 2017

“I’m proud of the fact that we made
life good for a lot of people.”

Harold began his career with the YMCA Retirement Fund in 1958, and became the fourth president and CEO of the Fund in 1983. During Harold’s 17-year leadership tenure, the Fund experienced unprecedented growth in membership
and assets.

Harold’s greatest strengths included his devotion to Fund Participants and the YMCA Movement. He would often visit YMCAs across the country to provide retirement guidance, and he greatly enriched the Movement. He was passionate about, and committed to, educating and helping people plan for retirement. He once stated, “I’m proud of the fact that we made life good for a lot of people.”

Throughout his lifetime, Harold touched many lives and was extraordinarily generous, supporting many causes close to his heart, both locally and throughout the world.
