Gilbert William Schmidt

April 1, 1953 - December 4, 2021

Gil Schmidt, 68, passed away unexpectedly on December 4, 2021. He was born in Norfolk, VA, and spent most of his life in Virginia Beach.

Gil was a hard-working, opinionated, and dedicated man. He worked diligently over the years, beginning at the age of 16, and loved his family, God, his Country, and his many friends.

Gil lived a simple life; never seeking wealth or fame. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved to make people laugh and was always there to help anyone in need. He will be deeply missed.

Gil was predeceased by his stepfather Eugene H. Frizzell, his mother Marian Gates Frizzell, and his brother David Frizzell.

Left to treasure his memory are his loving wife of 39 years Rebecca Taylor-Schmidt, his cherished daughter Elizabeth Schmidt, and his two cats BoBo and Little P, who he adored. Gil is also survived by two brothers Mike Frizzell and Larry Frizzell, as well as numerous cousins.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Altmeyer Funeral Home Maestas Chapel in Virginia Beach.
