Michael Francis Smisek was born August 20, 1965, at Queen of Peace Hospital in New Prague to Adeline and Marvin Smisek. He attended Montgomery Lonsdale School. He was active in Montgomery FFA, hockey, and working at Montgomery Auto.

Mike helped his grandparents and mom on the farm and had lots of hobbies: hunting, repairing cars and trucks, his great love of feeding his hummingbirds, growing cacti, and caring for his cats and dog, “Socks” with love. He was a wonderful man and will be deeply missed.
