Peter Talbot Smith Obituary, Death – Peter Talbot Smith After enjoying a fantastic life as a devoted husband, father, brother, son, and Marine, he passed away unexpectedly on August 26, 2022 at the age of 84. He had lived a wonderful life up to that point. He reached the age of 84 having continued to lead this life. He was an outstanding architect who, during the course of his career, had been awarded a number of honors for the work that he had done. He was born on June 13, 1938, as the first child to Clarence J. and Eleanor (Talbot) Smith, making him their eldest child and the first born child overall.
He was the first child to be born to any of their children. Peter’s ancestors included John Alden, Priscilla Mullins, and Myles Standish, and he was a descendent of these people. Peter’s ancestors also sailed on the Mayflower. His family has been associated with the community of Duxbury as far back as the year 1624, when it was first settled. Since Peter and his coworkers began working in this industry, it has been almost four decades, and they have successfully completed over 900 projects in the city of Duxbury alone.
Peter took the choice in 1956 to enlist in the United States Marine Corps rather than continue his education at the age of 17, when he was just 17 years old. Up to the year 1960, he was a member of the Marine Corps. After receiving his diploma from Parris Island on April 11, 1956, he enlisted with the First Marine Air Wing, VMF-513, also referred to as the “Flying Nightmares,” where he continued his service for the remainder of his time in the armed forces. It wasn’t until he had served in the military from 1956 until 1962 that he was finally awarded an honorable discharge, at which point he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant (E-4), a position he had held since 1956.
