Bo was born on September 1, 1935 in Alexandria, Virginia, son of the late Noble and Mary (Gensmer) Smith Sr. He served our country honorably in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Alaska. During this time, he met the love of his life, Priscilla Ann Blackburn. The couple was united in marriage on April 14, 1962 at First Presbyterian Church of Northville, Michigan. Their union was blessed with four wonderful sons of whom he loved and cherished. They made their home in Roseville in 1966. Bo worked as a tool and die welder for Chrysler for over 30 years of dedicated service, retiring on October 31, 1996. He enjoyed golfing whenever he could and loved camping with his family. After his retirement, Bo and Priscilla became "Snowbirds" and enjoyed traveling out west; and spending their winters in Arizona and Texas. Bo never met a stranger and was a loyal man. He also loved his southern seafood and collecting Pepsi memorabilia. Above all, he was a family man who was a dedicated husband, a supportive father and an adoring grandfather. He will be deeply missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.
Bo is the beloved husband of 56 years to Priscilla; cherished father of Noble (Sue), Brion (Lori), Gregory (Gina) and Michael (Traci); proud grandfather of Donald, Brionna, Troy, Easton and Kiara; dear brother of Mary Alice Sullivan and the late Florence Kobleck and Anna Myers; and loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.
