In Memory . . .
Brian Lynn Schmitt
Our hero, Brian Lynn Schmitt, was taken from us suddenly on December 9, 2010. Brian was born on October 13, 1963, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Neil M. and Connie J. Schmitt. Brian graduated from Cottonwood High School in 1982 and later earned his Associates Degree in Applied Science from Weber State College. Brian completed twenty years of service with the Sandy City Fire Department and Bluffdale City Fire Department. Not only was Brian a true leader and respected Captain to his crew, but to everyone he came in contact with in life. Brian worked hard and played even harder. He enjoyed vacationing, camping and riding with family and friends. Brian filled our lives with his generosity, sense of humor, sincere love for us and his passion for getting his family and friends together. Brian was an amazing husband, father, teacher and best friend to ALL. To his children, Brian was "The King." There will not be one day that passes that Brian will not be in our hearts and thoughts. Our lives will not be the same without him. Brian is survived by his soul mate, best friend and the love of his life, Trina Shoell Schmitt, their four sons: Travis Schmitt, Trevor Hegemann, Tyler Hegemann and Bradon Schmitt; parents: Neil M. and Connie J. Schmitt; siblings: Vaughn N. Schmitt (Dawni), Catherine A. Wozab (Wade), Darren L. Schmitt (Brooke) and Cristen K. Budd (Troy); twelve nieces and nephews who adored their Uncle Brian and the many friends that were family to Brian.
