Donald Faris Schmitt

Donald Faris Schmitt of Payson died Jan. 22, 2010. He was born Feb. 5, 1971 in Phoenix.
He is survived by his wife, Marietta Corine Schmitt; daughters, Audrey Schmitt, Sarah Edwards and Amy Edwards; and a granddaughter, Mica Austin. Also surviving are his sisters, Dolores Ricker of Henderson, Nev., Dana Stitz of Mesa, Donna Kennedy of Macon, Ga. and Dana Ryan, Phoenix; and his brother, Dwayne Fischer of Macon, Ga.
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 will held at 1 p.m., Friday Jan. 29 at Mountain Bible Church, 302 E. Rancho Road. Following the service there will be 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.
