LEE ROY "ZEKE" SCHMIDT Tuesday, March 7, 1933 - Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Lee Roy “Zeke” Schmidt was born in a log cabin on Terrill Creek Road, Billings Missouri, March 7, 1933 to Frank and Alma Schmidt. On May 24, 2017, at 84 years of age, he passed from this life into the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was preceded in death by Sydney Jane Schmidt, his wife of 61 years, and by one of his dear grandchildren.
In his life he was a faithful husband, father, and grandfather, a little league coach for all his sons, a Sunday school teacher and deacon in his church, a masterful electrician and contractor, a friend, mentor, and encourager to too many people to name.
He is survived by his six adult children and their spouses, Steve and Nancy Schmidt, Becky and Bill Cummings, Sue Schmidt, Victoria and Harley Faber, Dave and Joyce Schmidt, and Mark and Kelly Schmidt; eighteen grandchildren; twenty-seven great-grandchildren; and a brother and wife, Jim and Mary Schmidt.
His great smile and welcoming heart were present even though he was painfully challenged these last few years. We love and will miss you Dad. You fought the good fight and finished the race. We will see you on the other side.
There will be a memorial graveside service at 2:00 P.M., Saturday, June 3, 2017, in Wade Chapel Cemetery, Republic, Missouri, with Steve Schmidt officiating. Flowers are to be taken to Meadors Funeral Home, 314 N. Main Ave., Republic, before 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 3, 2017. Online condolences may be shared on this website.
