Hmmm... You say the function "only takes integer values" but the examples you post are written to accept any value and return integer values. Also, I would not decribe something returning integer values as quite smooth. However, NMinimize does what you want. For example,
In[1]:=
NMinimize[{func1[x, y, z], {x, y, z} \[Element] Integers},
{x, y, z}]
Out[1]=
{54., {x -> 2, y -> 3, z -> 4}}
