Harold passed away on June 22, 2019 at the age 101 years.
He was born in Marlette, Michigan on a farm on February 12, 1918 to Ethel and Egbert Smith.
He had one brother, Kenneth, and three sisters, Betty, Donna, and Genevieve.
He graduated from Marlette High School in 1935 and became a salesman for Acme Art Co.
He also worked for General Motors in Michigan. He married his first wife, Lois Jean,
and had two children, Pat Motika and Sandra Kilpatrick.

He worked for several corporations in Michigan and later on went to Cleary Business College in Ypsilanti, Michigan, working five jobs to pay for his education. He graduated in 1940.

I, Everett, am a nephew of Harold. Mehri, my wife, and I visited Colorado for two days in the year 2,000. Harold visited us in our hotel. We clicked from the moment we saw each other. Since then we continued through phone calls, letters, and post cards. We enjoyed each others company. Harold was a gentle, knowledgeable man. He shared his expertise about real estate and the importance of connection with the community. He was a man of dignity. We all loved him. We miss his wisdom and advice.

My name is Charlene Wilder, Genevieve Smith's daughter and Uncle Harold's niece. Uncle Harold and I corresponded for more than 50 years. He always thanked me for taking the time to write him, enclosing pictures of my family and sending special occasion cards. Uncle Harold was a wonderful person and always encouraged me to never give up and keep on trying in the business world. He said, "you will be successful." He was a very positive person who was passionate about politics and religion. He loved his family with all of us heart. He will be truly missed. We all loved you Uncle Harold and will never forget you. You will always be with us every day.

I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose someone very precious, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. Allow him to give the comfort you need at this time through prayer as he invites us to do at Philippians 4:6, 7 “…in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God;7 and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” He has promised that under his Kingdom rule he will remove sickness, old age, and death from his human family (Isaiah 33:24; Job 33:24, 25; 1 Corinthians 15:26). May you be comforted by these words.
