Mt. Pleasant

George E. Smillie, 69, of Mt. Pleasant, died, Sunday, April 14, 2024, in Select Specialty Hospital, Latrobe. He was born, March 30, 1955, in Greensburg, a son of the late Jesse C. Smillie and Nora M. Smillie. He was a member of Forbes Road Christian Fellowship. George was the owner of Smillie’s Restaurant, Mt. Pleasant.  Early in life George was an avid “Animal Style” Volleyball player in family games fondly remembered by those who were there.  Later in life he cheered for his grandchildren’s adventures with that same vigor outside of his die-hard support of the Pirates.  All along he greatly enjoyed Steeler football, Monday Night bowling at Pleasant Lanes with his son, and working towards his own business dreams alongside his daughter.  He is survived by his wife, Joan I. Smillie; his children, Jesse C. Smillie (wife Dawn) and Amanda M. Hardik (husband Andrew); his brother Donald Smillie; his sister Tammie Smillie; his grandchildren, Lilly Hardik, George Smillie, Drew Hardik and Jacob Smillie; brothers-in-law, George W. Tompkins, Jr. and Patrick W. Tompkins; sisters-in-law, Betsy Reynolds and Bonnie Diehl; his last living Aunt Edith Albright; also, several nieces and nephews.  Family and friends will be received on Thursday, April 18, 2024, from 4 to 7 pm at Kepple-Graft Funereal Home, 524 North Main Street, Greensburg. A funeral service for George will be held on Friday, April 19, 2024, at 12 Noon in the funeral home. Interment will follow in Westmoreland County Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Forbes Road Christian Fellowship. The Smillie Family would like to thank the staff of Select Specialty Hospital for their wonderful care of George.   They would also like to extend a special thanks to Pam Smillie and Ivan Keslar for their tireless support of the family.  For online condolences, please visit www.kepplegraft.com.
