SCH­MID, John Nor­bert

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM/ADVICE -

It is with great sad­ness that the fam­ily an­nounce the pass­ing of John Nor­bert Sch­mid on March 21, 2016, at Dart­mouth General Hospital, with his lov­ing wife Corinne at his side. John was born in Syd­ney June 7, 1944, the son of the late Ge­orge and Hen­ri­etta (Tobin) Sch­mid. He grad­u­ated from Syd­ney Academy, St. Xavier Univer­sity and TUNS as an ar­chi­tec­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal de­signer. His ca­reer with con­tract work was var­ied and very in­ter­est­ing from study­ing the ef­fects of work­ers in iso­la­tion in Labrador to work­ing as a li­ai­son and su­per­vi­sor when build­ing high-rises in Cal­gary for the Chan­dler Kennedy Ar­chi­tec­tural Group of New York.

John’s pas­sion was art and he was an ac­com­plished artist painting in oil and acrylic. He sold his work in painting, pho­tog­ra­phy and sculp­ture at lo­cal shows and shops. He shared his love of fine food, wine, art, ren­o­vat­ing older homes and travel with his wife of 12 years.

John is sur­vived by his wife, Corinne (MacDon­ald); her daugh­ters, Kara (Peter Camp­bell), Amy Le­Moine (Daniel Mor­ri­son), Meaghan Le­Moine (Shane Bal­lard); as well as grand­chil­dren, Adam, Reg and Grace Camp­bell, Johnny Le­Moine and Everett Bal­lard. He was a much-loved brother of Ge­orge (Elaine) Sch­mid, Theresa Bren­ner of On­tario and Wal­burga ( John) Bel­liveau of Bri­tish Columbia. He was much loved by his neph­ews, Ge­orge Colin Sch­mid and Michael Bel­liveau and nieces, Cindy Hunt, He­len Bren­ner, Anita Fisher and Shiloh Bel­liveau. His trips to visit his first cousins Hans Peter, Bernard and Rita in Ger­many will also be missed by them. John will be es­pe­cially missed by his sis­ter-in-law, Glenda and brother-in-law, Daniel McKeough, with whom many hol­i­days and cel­e­bra­tions were spent.

John served many years as trea­surer, di­rec­tor and his­to­rian of his beloved C.B. Ca­noe and Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety. They will raise a trib­ute to him in their own way.

John had a wide cir­cle of close friends who will truly miss him.

A cel­e­bra­tion of John’s life will take place Fri­day, April 1, at 4 p.m. at United Her­itage Church, 500 Char­lotte St. with Rev. Rose­mary Godin of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Fam­ily flow­ers only please and if one wishes an act of kind­ness or do­na­tion to your favourite char­ity can be made in his mem­ory.

“It’s a blessed thing to love and be loved in re­turn.”
