Michael Smith

June 21, 1949 — January 10, 2023

Cadiz

Michael Dwain Smith, 73, of Cadiz, Ohio, passed away on January 10, 2023, at Valley Hospice Center North in Steubenville, Ohio surrounded by his family. He was born June 21, 1949, in Martins Ferry, Ohio a son of the late Dwain Dickerson Smith and Mary Margaret McFarlan. He graduated from Cadiz High School in 1967.

He is survived by his wife Kim (Sliva) Smith; his two sons Clinton (Samantha) Smith of New Port Richey, Florida and Jacob (Sarah) Smith of Hudson, Florida; stepdaughter Lori (Greg) Hinnant of Denver, North Carolina; stepson Michael Meadows of Sumter, South Carolina; seven grandchildren with whom he spent as much time as possible.

He was a proud father, stepfather, foster father, Godfather, and grandfather. Mike had five siblings, all of whom have remained best friends throughout their lives: Terry (Sue) Smith, Robert (Susan) Smith, Rebecca (Chris) Wood, David (Lorrie) Smith and Amy (Greg) Tullis. He was an uncle to many nephews and nieces whom he adored lovingly. They gathered as a family as often as possible.

More than anything, Mike’s faith was his number one priority. He spent countless hours reading, talking, sharing with others, his belief in God. He also enjoyed planting anything that would grow and spent constant attention taking care of them. He enjoyed playing euchre with friends. He was not a stranger to anyone and loved spending time talking.

Mike lived in Marysville for 18 years raising his family. Mike had many jobs over his lifetime. His favorites were farming and truck driving. He also enjoyed his 10 years managing McDonald’s, but he also put that suit and tie on and worked other office jobs. While Mike was at Marysville, he was a member of a barbershop quartet and chorus, and spent many enjoyable days performing for people.

Mike volunteered at the Food Bank and the Food Pantry when he could. He enjoyed just getting in the car and driving past the corn fields to see how they were doing. He enjoyed doing anything for his church. That was very important to him.
