It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Charles Schmidt announces his death after a long courageous battle with brain cancer, at the age of 63.
Bob will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jane, his children Tristan and Caitlin, and his sisters Denise (Russell), and Anne-Marie. Bob will also be fondly remembered by his nephews and their families and many good friends, colleagues in the social justice community and all who knew him.
Heartfelt thanks to friends and all of the medical personnel who treated and cared for Bob over the past 4 years, and to the staff and volunteers at Pilgrim’s Hospice who made his life pleasant in recent months.
A Memorial Service and celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Monday, June 25, at 10:30 a.m., at St. Michael-Resurrection Catholic Church, 10555-50A Street, Edmonton. Interment of the urn will follow at the Holy Cross Cemetery.
Those who desire, may make memorial donations in memory of Bob to the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, or to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
