Gerald “Gary” Lowell Schmidt, 81, of Viroqua, WI passed away on Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at Tomah VA Medical Center.

Born in Kenosha, on November 17, 1939, Gary was the son of the late Stanford and Luella (Allen) Schmidt.

He enlisted in the United States Air Force on September 24, 1959 and served as a radar technician. Gary was sent many places during his service including Vietnam and Iceland. He also worked in a computer lab in Columbus, OH. Gary earned his GED while he was in the service. He was honorably discharged on September 23, 1963.

Gary was well liked throughout school and made many friends. He was witty and fun to be with. He received various honors and awards while in high school. He had an interest and hobby in art, especially painting with oils and watercolors, and had a painting hung at the Philadelphia Art Museum before leaving high school.

He is survived by his brother, Ted (Lee) Schmidt; two sisters, Barbara (Bruce) Dunbar, and Penny Harbison; and three sisters-in-law, Rose Schmidt, Barbara Schmidt, and Cheryl Schmidt.

Gary was preceded in death by his siblings, Constance, Dorothy, Robert, William, James, Richard, and Lawrence.
