His accomplishments and honors, both in and outside of the fraternity, are many. (Michael's lengthy list of achievements can be seen in his obituary HERE.) Over the years, I know of countless Masons all across the country who have said that Mike Smith exemplified the very best that Freemasonry teaches and that he lived his life by the precepts of our fraternity. His death is a tragic loss to us all. Please keep Michael's wife Lynn, his sons, Worshipful Brothers Duane and Chris, and the rest of his family in your prayers.
His column is broken, and his brethren mourn.
Requiescat in Pace.

A tremendous loss to Masons of South Carolina.ReplyDelete
When I joined Scottish Rite Michael was GM of South Carolina. He attended the reunion and presented me and Richard Tarpley from my Lodge "Summerville 234" his Grand Masters pin along with his congratulations. We also had a picture taken with him. I will never forget him and will miss him every day. He was a great man and Freemason.ReplyDelete
