A Tribute to Gary Schmidt 1951-2012

On November 9, 2012, a valued friend of the concrete placing industry, Gary Schmidt, 61, passed away in Walnut, California. Gary courageously battled lung cancer for almost a year before leaving behind his wife Sally, a married daughter and a recently born grandson. He precedes his mother Mary, three brothers and two sisters. Gary was the son of the late Joe Schmidt, Jr., a pioneer in concrete placing; and Gary proudly followed in his father’s footsteps with the same dedication to advancing our industry.
