Helmut Schmidt

June 24, 1953 – September 2, 2022

On Friday, September 2, 2022, at the age of 69, Helmut passed away suddenly due to complications from an aggressive form of cancer. His beloved wife Susan of 43 years was there holding him in her arms as his spirit left her side at their home.

His daughter Robyn that he so deeply loved, along with his son-in-law Robbie, who meant the absolute world to him were right by his side as he officially passed at 5:55 a.m., while receiving his angel numbers. The meaning of angel number 555 is all about transition and welcoming change.

It is a friendly reminder and warning from your angels and guides that it is safe to make change that is on your mind. It is a message that you have to trust your inner intuition with this decision and know that you are divinely protected…protected he was.

Waiting to see his smiling face again were his mother Elfriede and one of his best friends Tony, along with his many fur babies.

He leaves behind his incredible father Walter, his siblings and in-laws, nieces, nephews and countless friends who he cherished so much, along with his niece Taylor whom he shared a very special bond with.

Helmut was an amazing, extremely loyal and kind hearted man who absolutely loved to make people laugh. His cackle was infectious and if he was teasing you, you knew you were special to him. His talents as a finishing carpenter were undeniable and truly remarkable. His skill set led to he and his wife’s labour of love, building their dream home where they raised their daughter. Many cherished memories were had here hosting fabulous dinners, countless pool parties and corn roasts. These traditions will remain as Helmut was his happiest when he was sharing laughs with the ones he loved.

Although his passing was sudden, his fight was mighty!!!!  A warrior to say the very least.

We would like to thank all of the doctors and staff at HSC and Selkirk Hospitals who helped in his care and transition.

A Celebration of Life will follow.

“Your presence we miss, your memories we treasure, loving you always, forgetting you never.”
