Costco greeter of 24 years dies

- A familiar face to shoppers at the Danville Costco has passed away.

Arlie Smith greeted countless customers at the store for 24 years. He died Tuesday, after a battle with cancer.

KTVU profiled Smith back in 2015 for his fundraising campaign for his favorite charity, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.

He raised more than $230,000 for the hospital, and gave $10,000 of his own.

Smith was 48-years-old and is survived by his wife, Shari Smith.
