Please share a memory of George to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

George Robert Smith, 93, of Traverse City passed away on December 19, 2022. He was born on May 27, 1929 to Bert Smith and Minerva Hempstead. Educated locally, George graduated from Mt. Morris High School in 1947.

 

He married his high school sweetheart, Shirley D’Arcy on October 20, 1951. Shirley has been his wife and best friend for 71 years. George proudly answered his country’s call and enlisted in the United States Army in 1947. He served through the Korean War as an electrician. Upon his return to civilian life, George worked for General Motors at A. C. Sparkplug for 40 years, until his retirement in 1987. George was a kind, loving man with a dry sense of humor.
