Michael Sidney Smith, July 20, 1934 - June 14, 2019

After living a full, interesting and fantastically diverse life, Michael Sidney Smith passed away on June 14, 2019.
Mike grew up in post-depression wartime Britain. After years of cycling the rain-soaked foggy streets of London, he found his way across the Atlantic to beautiful Toronto. This is where he met Joan who, as he would later say, “Changed my life for the best.”
Mike helped revolutionize the Canadian Film industry, turning it into what we as Canadians take pride in today. He was most proud of his family who will remember him for his rich stories, countless friendships, summers in Muskoka, and years of woodworking projects. Before he passed, we asked if he was happy with the life he had led, his response was fast, simple and content, “Very, very much.”
Mike is survived by his wife, Joan and their four children, Suzanne (Peter) Longstreet, Michele (Mark) Rich, David (Helen Cloots) Smith and Christina (Robert) Holroyd and all of his grandchildren, Hannah, Sidney, Harrison and James Wyatt. He is also survived by his sister Jacqueline Lehto of Vancouver.
A celebration of life and love will be held on September 6, 2019 in Collingwood, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice Georgian Triangle, Collingwood General Marine Hospital Foundation, of Saint Elizabeth Foundation would be appreciated.
In true Mike Smith fashion, his last wish was to make sure all of the wonderful staff at Campbell House were honoured.

Our heartfelt sympathy to the Smith family as you celebrate the life of Michael Sidney Smith.
May the good memories of times spent with him bring you solace.
Although we did not get the chance to meet Mike, we know he was a generous, smart and resourceful man, who achieved a lot in optical printing technology and who much enjoyed life.
Your family must have been very proud of him.
We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
