M.D. Smith, age 91, of Palm Harbor passed away gently on July 10, 2017. He was surrounded during the last three weeks of his life by his loving wife, children, grandchildren, Pastor and friends.

M.D. was born and raised in Bartlesville, OK. His working years were spent as Manager of retail ready-to-wear stores in Bartlesville, Kansas City, St. Louis and Chicago. He and his wife retired to Florida in 1990.

M.D. was a quiet, unpretentious person with a great sense of humor who loved sports, reading, traveling, baking (!) and being with his family and friends. He was ever-thoughtful of those he felt needed a helping hand, and never ceased feeling fortunate with his lot in life. M.D. was a much-loved man and will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife of 73 years, Claudine; one brother, Don, and his wife, Doris; two sons: Gary, of Lake Placid, NY, and David, of Matthews, NC; two daughters-in-law: Kathie and Kym; one granddaughter, Sagan; three grandsons: Garrick, Justin and Kellen; three granddaughters-in-law: Tracy, Laura and Hannah; five great-grandchildren: Jackson, Grant, Morgan, Kelsey and Saoirse; and one nephew, Mike.

A memorial Celebration of Life will be held in M.D.’s honor at 11:00 AM on Thursday, July 27, 2017 at Stratford Court, 45 Katherine Blvd., Palm Harbor, FL.
