Donald G. Smith was born on December 19, 1938 in Independence Kansas. His family later settled in Michigan where he ended up attending Michigan State University, eventually earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting in 1961. Don was a passionate and lifelong patron of MSU and enjoyed taking friends and colleagues to Spartan football games every year, enjoying MSU Dairy Store ice cream, and singing the MSU alma mater.
After his graduation, Don moved to Detroit and took a position with the State of Michigan. This position was his first step in his lasting commitment to civic duty and public service – he became a Big Brother for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. It was here that he met his future wife, Hersheline.
Don became a Certified Public Accountant in 1972 and was hired by the Firm Weintraub and Nessel and Associates. He was an exceptional accountant and his attention to detail was extraordinary; ultimately these skills led to him becoming Managing Partner in 1980.
Don is remembered for being loving and faithful, careful and firm, his love of coin collecting and pear preserves, and standing as an example of humility and integrity for all in the world; earning the respect of clients, associates, friends, family, and most anyone he spent time with. He will truly be missed.
