Alec "Tiptoe" Schmidt Benefit
Alec was an amazing, smart, witty, charismatic, not to mention handsome (see pics below) social butterfly. He was a passionate gamer who at one time was professional until age limitiations changed that. He was the backbone of Onslaught and many people knew what an amazing and up and coming gamer he was.
Alec loved his friends and family more than anything. Suicide is not something anyone ever expects, especially when there were no signs. We know that this was completely out of Alec's character and may never know why, but we do know that he loved us and would have never done something like this had he thought about the pain we are all experiencing right now.
Our unexpected loss has left us searching for ways to honor Alec and unfortunately our family does not have the means to pay for all of the circumstances around the death of Alec. It is not like us to ever ask for anything and if you knew Alec, you know this to be true of him as well, but we are asking for your help at this time to eliviate this unexpected financial burden.
Our family is more than grateful for anything you can give. The funeral will be Tuesday June 7 with times and location to be posted soon. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and support. We are heartbroken.

We would also like people to know that Alec showed no signs of depression to our family, any of his friends or competitors . No one had any clue that something like this would occur with Alec. We are all completely shocked as this is totally out of character for him. He loved life and was the life of the party.
Anyone who knows Alec knows that this is true and would never in a million years believe that Alec would be capable of something this tragic. We don't believe this is something Alec had been planning, however we also don't know what lead him to this. We may never know and that is also very hard to comprehend.
Please know suicide is never the answer. There is help and people truly do care. You are loved, just as Alec still is.
Your kind words, hugs, donations of food, helping us with expenses, removing comments from social media until all family was notified, prayers, the out pouring of love, the memories you have shared and so much more than can be listed here are appreciated more than you can fathom.
We hope Alec appreciated his send off. Our hearts are still broken but now the healing begins. Please continue to share memories of Alec with our family even if it is 5 years from now. Remembering Alec and being more like Alec is something we all need.
On behalf of Alec's family, my family, THANK YOU and please remember you are loved and that suicide should never be an option. Trust me, we care.
I have been apart of Rob , Jesse & Alec's life since the boys were born and Rob since I was very you. There should be no question as to the validity of this account ! For gods sake a young man died far too young.Why would anyone be so stupid as to question the fact that gunerals are very expensive and is especially financially draining when it is totally unexpectec. Rob would never ask for help unless it was his last option. I hope whoever is questioning never has to go thru what Alec's family is going thru!!!
