“Those who attend the service, if you are able, we request you wear a flannel shirt to honor my father. My dad never wore a suit unless he had to. He won't be wearing one and he wouldn't expect you to either. Stick around and raise a Budweiser.”


Michael William Smith was born September 23, 1951, in Rock Island, Illinois, the son of William and Audrey (Noble) Smith. He graduated from Rockridge High School and St. Ambrose University in Davenport. He married the love of his life, Penney Mullen, on May 4, 1974, in Moline.


Mike worked for John Deere Harvester in East Moline, retiring in 2011. He was a member of Christ United Methodist Church, East Moline, and UAW Local #865. He enjoyed restoring antique automobiles and farm equipment, gardening, hunting, and raising horses. He also loved running and was proud to have twice competed in the Boston Marathon.
