Carl David Schmidt, 66, of Indianapolis, passed away on Wednesday, May 26, 2021.
Carl was born in Indianapolis, IN on May 4, 1955 to Carl W and Mary A (Mabry) Schmidt. After graduating High School he went on to become a welder. He was incredibly talented at welding, he even converted his van to wheelchair accessible for himself after losing his legs. He was mechanically gifted, and the go-to guy for fixing cars for anyone in the family. Carl was the type of person to drop everything and help someone fix whatever, he was kind-hearted soul. He loved being outside, fishing and especially camping. He was already excited for this year, convinced he was going to get his camper out and fixed up himself.
Carl was a fighter, he never gave up and never let the circumstances hold him back. He was the life of the party, and always ready to celebrate with someone. Although he had a bit of a temper and could be incredibly stubborn and set in his ways, Carl was the best brother and best dad he could be. He loved being grandpa and playing with his grandbabies. His family was his world and he loved them dearly.
Carl is survived by his children Joanna, Carla, and Shanna; his grandchildren Jaylen, Cameron, Corinne, Kyli, Zachary, Marissa, and Seth; his siblings Gregory A Schmidt, Susan A Schmidt-Ciresi; John A Schmidt; Michael "Red" A Schmidt, Maureen A Schmidt, and Elizabeth A Schmidt Havlin; and many nieces and nephews.
