Dean Smith’s grave in the Old Chapel Hill Cemetery receives a final marker

One gravestone looks new in the Old Chapel Hill Cemetery. Its gray granite has been purposefully left unpolished to camouflage its age. But the stone, unspoiled by time, stands out. Carved letters read, “Dean Edwards Smith / February 28, 1931 – February 7, 2015.” The new marker was placed over his grave on March 11 this year, replacing a temporary stand-in. (Durham Herald-Sun)
