Schmidt, William C. (Bill), age of 68, of Trinity, FL (originally Cincinnati, OH), died March 16, 2018. He is survived by his beloved wife of 37 years, Patricia (Patti) Schmidt, and was the cherished father of Laura and Brian.

Dear Patti,
We will always remember Bill for his strong commitment to his family and friends. We remember how much he loved you, and how he got up late at night to go shopping for you at school. True love. He was a role model for all of us. We cannot believe that we will no longer see him. He will be truly missed. We will always remember his faith filled life. We know that he is now enjoying his eternal life in heaven. We will keep him and you in our prayers. If there is anything that we can do for you, please let us know. We love you very much.
