In Loving Memory

Schmitt, David Anthony

David Anthony Schmitt of Oakville, Missouri entered into eternal rest on February 22, 2024 surrounded by family.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Marie Schmitt, and his 2 grandchildren, Davito and Steven Schmitt.

Those left to cherish his memory include his beloved wife of 58 years, Karen Schmitt (Klevorn), his 14 children, David (Rosalinda) Schmitt, Suzanne (Steve) Stottlemyer , Julie (Jeff) Elking , Daniel, Bernard (Tammy) Schmitt, Michael (Roberta) Schmitt, Catherine (Jason) Collins , Ann Schmitt (Bryan Shoultz), Emily (Tim) Howard , Mary (Derek) Sizemore, Margaret French, Lucy Jean Kostelny (Eric Wuebbels), John Jacob (Lexy) Schmitt, and Matthew Schmitt, along with 44 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  He is also survived by two brothers,  Raymond and Stephen, and a sister, Sr. Mary Kay.

David was an entrepreneur, a co-founder in the pioneering software company, Lattice, Inc., and a published author.  His career, which spanned six decades, was filled with many accomplishments. He ended his career as an Architect Evangelist for Microsoft where he was a mentor and friend to many.

David enjoyed spending time with his large family, traveling with his wife, bowling, watching movies, listening to music, and keeping up with the latest technology.  He was an avid debater, and you could often find him smoking a cigar and discussing a variety of  topics with those around him, especially with his brother-in-law on Saturday evening “hair night.”  David left a legacy of service to life and family that all who knew him seek to emulate.  His presence in our life will be greatly missed, but his lessons live on.

David was a devoted parishioner of Queen of All Saints Parish in Oakville, MO.  A memorial mass will be held in his honor at 10:00 am on April 5, 2024 at Queen of All Saints Parish. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributing to The Little Sisters of the Poor or Covenant House.

    I was truly sorry to hear of Davids passing. We have been friends and classmates for over 75 years. He was a great guy and someone you could count on at all times. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace old friend.
