Richard R. Schmidt, 79, of Kendall, Wis., died peacefully Sept. 14, 2018, while convalescing in an Elroy, Wis., nursing home.

He was born Aug. 20, 1939. He is survived by his significant other, Alona Schultz; his former wife, Sharon Schmidt of Mauston; his children, Rick (Rosetta) Schmidt of Elroy, Missy (Tom) McAfee of La Valle, Deneen (Chuck) Sinon of New Port Richey, Fla., and Janine (Travis) Harris of Rifle, Colo.; his sisters, Elaine Woodard, Ramona Kampe, and Sharron (Len) Gosse; his brothers, Gordon (Shirley) Schmidt and Donnie (Kim) Schmidt (former wife Donna Schmidt); seven granddaughters; four grandsons; six great-grandchildren; and additional nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
