Maurice Smith was born on July 21, 1952. He was raised and educated in the Grundy County school district and graduated from Grundy Center High School. Following high school, Maurice went on to Kirkwood College where he enjoyed with great honor. Maurice always had a job that was helping others, he drove an ambulance for many years and worked at different nursing homes as an LPN assisting others and putting their needs in front of his own. His other passions in life were his Harley Davidson’s. He took pride in his bikes and nothing made him happier than when he was riding on his Harley’s. Although his Bikes did make him happy, nothing made him any more excited than the time spent with his family and friends.
Left to cherish his memory are his three children: Jessica (Stacy Barnes) Smith, Cody Roos and Jared (Dawn Huynh) Smith; seven grandchildren: Dakota (Lindsey Slifer) Plante, Quin (Eli Anderson) Damman, Miranda Damman, Kalob Plante, Izaak Seymour, Carlee Smith, and Jace Smith.
In honor of Maurice, the family has asked for those who can please ride your Motorcycle.
