Robert "Rob" J. Schmidt, 45

St. Joseph

October 31, 1968 - June 13, 2014

Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 20, 2014 at St. Anthony Catholic Church in St. Cloud for Robert "Rob" Schmidt, age 45, who passed away at his home on Friday after a courageous thirteen-year battle with cancer.  Rev. Thomas Knoblach will officiate and burial will be at Calvary Cemetery, St. Cloud.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the services Friday at the church.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home, Sauk Rapids.  

Rob was born Oct. 31, 1968 in St. Cloud to John & Olivia (Slivnik) Schmidt.  He worked as a computer technician for NCR.  Rob was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church in St. Cloud.  He loved his dogs, and loved working and keeping busy.  Rob also loved music and owned an impressive collection that numbered over five hundred titles.  Rob was determined and hardworking, even when his health was failing.  He was always full of one-liners and possessed a dry but pleasant sense of humor.

Survivors include his mother, Olivia of St. Joseph; brothers and sister, Thomas (Becky) of St. Cloud, William (Mary Beth) of Monticello, Alan (Patti) of Minneapolis, and Mary (Mark) Stiegel of St. Cloud.  Rob was preceded in death by his father, John in 1996; and brothers, Joseph and Richard.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
