Timothy Ray Schmit was born on July 26, 1966, in Mitchell to Francis and Eileen (Spahn) Schmit. Tim’s early years were spent at the family farm near Artesian. In 1973, he moved to Rock Valley, Iowa, where he attended the River Valley School, formerly known as Hope Haven, until 1982. He participated in Special Education classes there. On Feb. 4, 1982, Tim moved to Mitchell and began receiving services from MAATC, now LifeQuest.

Tim worked at various times at the vocational program provided by LifeQuest. Tim found meaning in his day by participating in activities that he enjoyed, both at home and in the Life Enrichment Program. He had a love of all animals, especially horses and dogs. A trip to Reclamation Ranch to ride on a horse was a special memory.

Timothy is survived by his brothers, Allen (Lynette) of Kingwood, Texas, Kevin (Rebecca) of Sheridan, Wyo., Craig of Sheridan, Wyo., Terry (Chris) of Gillette, Wyo., and Robert (Brenda) of Artesian; many nieces and nephews; and the amazing staff and residents of LifeQuest.
