Question what should i do?

Im going on a mini vacation at the end of march. I'll be away for 5 days.

I will worry about smokey not getting fed. My dad will be home..but im not sure if he will remember to put food out for him in the morning. If he doesnt get fed for the 5 days...im worried that he wont come back when I get home to feed him.

what should i do..

Well, if you have the money to "waste", get an automatic feeder!

5 day feeder = $60

Is there someone, a friend or another relative, who would be willing to give your dad a daily call to remind him?

Or a friend to come by to set food out for your kitty each day?

If this is a case that your Dad is co-operative and happy to feed Smokey, but just happens to be forgetful, then why not put up a few "Don't forget to feed Smokey!" signs in spots where your Dad will look in the morning, such as on the coffee maker, the fridge, the door that your Dad uses when he goes out, etc. On the other hand, if your Dad isn't too fond of Smokey and doesn't really want to feed him, then I'd see if you have a friend or neighbor who wouldn't mind doing it for a few days.
