Michael Smith

AGE: 72 • Middletown

Michael "Mr. Fantastic" Smith, 72, of Middletown, NJ, passed away on December 24, 2016 at Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel. He was born in Indianapolis, IN and lived in Jersey City for many years before moving to the Middletown area in 1979. Michael worked for the Monmouth County Road Department. He honorably served his country in the US Army from 1962 to 1966. Michael was a member of the VFW Post 2179, American Legion of Union Beach, Knights of Columbus of Keyport, a lifetime member of Keyport fishing club, and a member and past president of the Jaycee's of Jersey City. He was an avid fisherman and considered his many friends and fishing buddies part of his extended family. His sense of humor and larger than life personality will be sorely missed.

Surviving are his loving wife of 48 years, Carol; two sons and daughters-in-law, Timothy and Sharon Smith; Sean and Elizabeth Smith; grandchildren, Nora Eleanor and Aidan Patrick; sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Vincent Barbalinardo; and many nieces, nephews, and lifelong friends.

Michael was preceded in death by his grandson, Owen Francis Smith, and his brother, Paul Smith.

A memorial gathering will be held at a later date. John F. Pfleger Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. For more information or to send condolences please visit In lieu of flowers please consider a contribution in Michael's name to the Valerie Fund at or , at
