Robert Warren
Schmidt passed away
after a long and courageous
battle with
bone marrow cancer
on Saturday November
17, 2018. He was surrounded
by his family
at home. Bob was born
in Denver on May 26,
1946 and grew up in
Littleton. He graduated
from Littleton High
School in 1964. Bob then
attended the University
of Colorado as both a
music major and a business
major. Bob had a tremendous
gift when it came to music and played
multiple instruments. Bob played
in the "King Louie and the Laymen"
band for many years. They played at
several local clubs in the area and at
"The Bitter End" in New York City.
Later, Bob opened "The Bugle"
clothing store in Boulder in 1974.
He later opened a second store in
Fort Collins which became "Robert
Schmidt Clothiers". He relocated the
business to Boulder and was a staple
in the community for men's clothing
for many years. After he closed his
retail store, he spent over 15 years as a
realtor at RE/MAX of Boulder.
Bob was a longtime member of the
Boulder Country Club
where he served on the
Board of Directors for
several terms. He loved
spending the summers
playing golf with
his "Goon Group" and
in earlier years loved
playing tennis. Bob was
also a former member
of Boulder Rotary and
Foothills Rotary in Fort
Collins.
Bob loved the Buffs
and Broncos and was a
season ticket holder for both the CU
football and basketball programs. He
also was a big supporter of Fairview
High School athletics where his kids
attended high school. Bob's greatest
love was his family. He is survived by
his wife Dale, daughter Taylor, son
Trevor, and sister Sandra Stone and
her family.
A celebration of life will be scheduled
sometime after the first of the
year. Details will be communicated
at a later date. In lieu of flowers, we
ask that donations be made to the
Mile High Weimaraner Rescue. Bob
loved his dogs and rescued many
Weimaraners over the years.
