Albert Schmitt

Albert Schmitt, 30, of Evansdale died Tuesday, January 15 as a result of a house fire.
He was born on July 14, 1988, in Phoenix, Arizona, the son of Steven R. and Linda (Chapman) Schmitt. On December 19, 2015, he married Haley Moritz in Waterloo.
Albert obtained his GED and enlisted in the Army Reserves in 2006. He served an 8-month tour in Kuwait during Operation Spartan Shield in 2016. He worked for Harrison Truck Centers in Elk Run Heights since 2008, as a Diesel Technician.
He is survived by his wife, Haley; daughter, Carlee; and son, Benjamin, all of Evansdale; a twin brother, Edward, of Waterloo; a sister, Stephanie (Eric) Weber of Elk Run Heights; a sister, Susan (Forrest) Davis, of Saint Augustine, Florida; and nephews Clayton, Carter, and Cahne Weber of Elk Run Heights.
Albert was preceeded in death by his father; his mother; paternal grandparents, Raymond and Gertrude (Betty) Schmitt; and maternal grandparents, Dick and Helen (Woodgate) Chapman.
Albert had a very distinct sense of humor and often used sarcasm which made everyone around him laugh. Albert enjoyed fishing and shooting at the shooting range. He was a “fixer” and enjoyed spending time figuring out problems with vehicles and electronics and fixing whatever the issue was. He was a history enthusiast, particularly learning about World War II. He was a political enthusiast as well and spent countless hours watching YouTube videos about political issues. He enjoyed collecting World War II memorabilia and currency from different countries. But most importantly, he enjoyed spending time with his wife, his children, and his countless friends.

The memorial service will be on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at 1:30 PM at Parrott & Wood Chapel of Memories in Waterloo, with the visitation from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM.
