Michael Orell Smith passed away in his home on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. He was sixty-eight years old and lived in Wedgefield Plantation in Georgetown, South Carolina for the last sixteen years. He was born on March 10, 1952 and was raised in Hartsville South Carolina, and was the son of Orell and Martha Mills Smith. 

He obtained a bachelor’s in business marketing from the University of South Carolina and was employed by Loxcreen Company Inc. for 25 years. He
worked as the company’s Vice President for several years before leaving. He later retired as a branch manager from Amerigas Propane Corporation. Michael was a loving and generous father to his daughter and cared deeply for both of his sisters and their families. He had an incredible work ethic and successfully tackled any household and outdoor project to perfection. He was an avid fisherman and shrimper throughout his life and loved to visit the Outer Banks of North
Carolina. In his later year, Michael became a wonderful father to his beloved Papillion, Maggie. He enjoyed working in his yard, gardening, and spending time with many of his neighbors and his family. 

He is survived by his daughter, Laura R. Smith of Columbia, S.C., his two sisters Cheryl Brearley (Dr. William) of Lexington, S.C. and Teresa Peterson (Walt) of Hartsville and Greenwood, S.C.; his two nephews, Dr. William Brearley Jr. and Adam Peterson and his three nieces Jenny Cooper, Hannah Meade, and Kayla Tavernier.
