We Remember

SCHMIDT, David Leslie

March 12, 1963 — December 18, 2015

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved father, brother, and grandfather. David Leslie Schmidt was born in Chilliwack, B.C. on March 12, 1963 and passed away in Kelowna on December 18, 2015, at the age of 52 years.

David was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Olive Schmidt.  Left to mourn his passing are his sons Jim Schmidt, Jesse McLeod and daughter Sandra (Jeff) Daniels, his three sisters, Heather Swanson (Colin), Dawn Kielstra and Kathleen Stroeder (Gary), and several nieces and nephews and five grandchildren. David was proud of his many accomplishments and his many certificates and qualifications that he achieved with hard work and dedication. He was 5 weeks shy of his second Red Seal Certification in Electrical and already held a Red Seal in Carpentry. David always had a grateful heart and always shared what he had with others, even if it meant having nothing left for himself he said it would be ok and he would find a way…


David, you were so loved by so many, you will never be forgotten.

A Memorial Service will be held on January 9, 2016, 4411 Old Vernon Rd.,Kelowna, B.C. at the Ellison Community Hall at 11:00 am.
