W.B. (Bill) Smith and his family.

Sandy McCann of Columbia shared these photos from her father's birthday party this weekend.

My dad, W.B. (Bill) Smith, celebrated his 90th birthday on Monday with his family and friends. Bill founded W. B. Smith feed mill and has lived in Columbia since he was 5 years old.

I am oldest of his five children. Marty, Judy and myself live in Columbia. Greg lives in Dallas, and Peggy lives in Gulf Breeze, FL. Steve Edwards took these photos from the party.

Bill Smith was a WWll Navy pilot. After the war, he returned to Columbia to finish his degree at the University of Missouri.
