Obituary for Allen G. Smith

Allen G. Smith, age 87, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on March 4, 2019 at Covenant HealthCare, Harrison Campus. Allen was born February 22, 1932, in Saginaw, Michigan, the youngest son of the late Ibri Nuel and Maria Royal (Shapland) Smith. Allen was a U.S. Army Veteran, honorably discharged in 1961. Allen lived his entire life on the family farm in Blumfield Township and farmed many years with his dad and brothers. In addition to farming, Allen worked at Grey Iron and Malleable Iron as a millwright and retired from General Motors in the 1990s. He dabbled in wood working, building toy barns, high chairs, strollers and any design Laura could draw up for him to follow. Allen enjoyed fishing and hunting with his son, sons-in-law, and friends. He and Laura had many adventures traveling with their fifth-wheel travel trailer visiting family around the country, including a trip to Alaska.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years, the former Laura Pemas, along with children Sherry Bissell, Diane Maurer (Ernest), Thomas Smith (Kimberly), grandchildren Matthew Maurer (Stephanie), Andrew Maurer (Erica), Laura Maurer, Jill Bissell (Luke Secosky), Chester Bissell, Stephanie Kibbel (Spencer), great grandchildren Genesis, Hayden, Cecelia, Vivian. Allen was predeceased by his parents, brothers Basil Eugene Smith, Delmas Dale Smith, Ibri Nuel Smith, Jr, and son-in-law Thomas Bissell.
