Woodlawn man hits century mark

(Continued)

When Smalley was asked about a historical event he remembered, a family member reminded him of the Great Depression.

That then prompted him to reminisce on how his family had a farm where they raised crops and livestock.

This hard work paid off because it made surviving a little easier on them than the average family. He is the youngest of five siblings: Tony, Joe, Clara, Annie, and Mike.

Family and friends gathered for a birthday celebration in honor of Smalley in Radom earlier this month.
