Mr. Smith,

You were a wonderful Swimming Instructor but most of all a Great Friend. I will miss our conversations about old times when you taught swimming lessons and when you taught at Martin Methodist College. You were a ray of sunshine in my life and you will be sorely missed. Remember who loves you..... for all your encouragement and positive instruction in life. Hope to see you in the next life.

Love Always
Mary

Coach Smith was a man of class. Always quick with a smile and a kind word. Coach Smith will be greatly missed by the Martin family. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

Kermit is probably the face of Martin College (old dog here) more than any other individual. I took golf as a P.E. elective from Kermit so I could leran to play golf. Not only did I learn to play golf, but I learned much more about the game of golf and everything involved with it - design, history, sportsmanship, how to appreciate a course, etc. I can't step onto a course without thinking of him.

He was a shining example of what makes Martin Methodist (learning) the special place that it is.

Rest In Peace Coach

I HAVE MANY FOUND MEMORIES OF KERMIT. HE WAS A GENTLEMANS
GENTLEMAN. NEVER MET A PERSON SO POSITIVE ON LIFE AND A TREMENDOUS "CAN DOER". HE WIL SADLY BE MISSED BECAUSE TO ME HE WAS, "MR. MARTIN COLLEGE" AND ALWAYS WILL BE.

HEAVEN IS GETTING A GATEKEEPER !

Kermit was a great friend and mentor. He touched so many lives in so many positive ways. He always made us feel good about ourselves.

His enthuiasm and encouragement will be truly missed.

Kermit was one of my heros!
