There is a lifetime of love and happiness, family and friends crammed into the little dash that separates the date of his first breath from his last.
Mike was a cherished son, brother, devoted husband and father, respected uncle and beloved Paw Paw to the grand kids that he adored.
‘Smitty’ spent the last 15 years with Zack Burkett Company, and if you asked, he wouldn’t hesitate to tell you that he was the best heavy machinery mechanic around.
He was fortunate enough to share 29 years of his life with his soulmate Cheryl Stallings-Smith, mostly because she is the only person that could put up with him, and he couldn’t seem to live without her. Cheryl preceded Mike in death on Jan. 6,2016.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Claude and Ruby Smith; wife, Cheryl Ann Stallings-Smith; sister, Susan Lyn Vann and brother, Barton Wayne Smith.
