A message from his children:
This is our Dad.
He was a fighter. He was a cowboy. He was a patriot. He was a teacher. He was an artist. He was a compassionate friend. He was adventurous and pushed people to challenge themselves. He was a collector and curator of information. He was an independent, persistant and self reliant man. He was a unique and eccentric personality. He was a sweet valentine. He was as stubborn as an ox. He was a warrior. He was God fearing and loved his Savior. He was a force all his own and left his mark on everyone he met.
He was, and is, an ever-loving father to us and now he is with both his father and His Father. He is whole and complete. He is healed of all ailments. He is able to run as he never was able to in this life. He is able to ride his beloved horse Flip faster and farther than ever before. He is at peace in the arms of those who love him across the veil. Our empty arms long for him, but the knowledge the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives us to know that he will be there to hold us when we come back home soothes our aching hearts. We will miss you Dad with all that is in us…‘til we meet again.
His service will be held at the Bedford Wyoming Ward chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Saturday, February 13th at 12:00 pm. Viewing will precede at 10:30 the same morning. The service will be streamed online at schwabmortuary.com.
