George C. Smiley, 80 of Kewaunee died on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at the Emergency Room at Ministry St. Joseph's Hospital.

Family will have a committal service on August 2, 2014 in Algoma.

George was born on April 20, 1934 in West Chester, PA to Herbert and Helen (Hammond) Smiley. He was united in marriage to Karen A. Goerl on August 23, 2002 in Green Bay.

He served in the United States Navy during the Korean Conflict. After retiring from Walt Disney World in 1989 where he worked for 13 years as a painter, George moved to the Marshfield/Neillsville area to start his own painting business, George Smiley Painting. He moved to Kewaunee in 2002 where he volunteered his time for many charities but mainly to the Algoma/Kewaunee Great Lakes Sport Fishing Club.

With a sense of humor that touched each person's heart, he filled the room with his smile.
