HERB SCHMIDT (HERBERT)
Date of Passing: Aug 01, 2020Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
1958 - 2020
Herb was the son of Angelina Maria Schmidt and Herbert George Schmidt, both recently deceased.
Herbert was an electrician and had numerous jobs, but the most interesting and fulfilling was his job at the Hotel Fort Garry where he worked as a security guard. The job that gave him a new purpose in life. He met and became friends with celebrities, dignitaries, law enforcement officers, co-workers, and many more. Herb always had an interesting story to tell. We will miss those stories.
He will be especially missed by his close friends, Mel, Carol, and Laura Wiebe. Our feelings can best be described by a short poem by Jamie Cirello, "I hate not knowing for sure what happens when you die. But I'd really love to believe there is a heaven past the sky."
A private memorial service will be held (controlled guest list).
