My brother, Ronald Schmidt passed away suddenly in his home on June 20th . He leaves behind a son and daughter. He shared his home with his daughter Katherine Raquel Schmidt in Las Vegas Nevada.
I have created this campaign to help his daughter, who finds herself in a difficult situation. Although it was my brothers intent to leave his home and his worldly possessions to his daughter, he had not yet made out his will. All donations will go directly to his daughter for help with funeral, lawyer, some outstanding medical bills for his hospital stay just prior to his passing and other end of life cost she will incur. And to help alleviate some of the financial pressure that will be upon her and her family in the next few months while she gets things sorted out.
My brother suffered from an ulcerated leg condition which grew worse as he became older, so he was forced to leave work a number of years ago and take early retirement, thus there are no savings for the family to fall back on. His daughter helped care for him.
Ronald was well loved by his family and many friends, and will be remembered for his love of rock hounding and collecting, for his involvement and enthusiasm in the Standauffish Renaissance Guild (pictured above) and his dream for building a permanent site for the Guild and of course his unwavering fascination in all things “Alien” .
He was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed .
