Mr. Schmitt was the love of his wife’s life and her best friend and he was the greatest father and grandfather anyone could ask for, writes his family. He was a walking book of knowledge, who could tell you anything about history, Harleys, guns, cars, movies and music. If asked, he would do anything to help anyone in need. More than anything in the world, all he wanted was to love and provide for his family and dearest friends.
Services were held at Mountain Bible Church, 302 E. Rancho Road, Payson at 1 p.m., Friday Jan. 29. Following the service there was a celebration of his life at Majestic Mountain Inn. There is a memorial fund at Compass Bank.
We all love and are going to miss him, writes his family.
