Julius Gustav Schmidt was born May 30, 1918 in Columbus to Edward and Hattie (Schmidt) Schmidt. On January 30, 1939 he was united in marriage to Vera S. Schefcick at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church in Columbus. The couple lived in Columbus their entire life except for a few years in Omaha. Julius was employed as a local carpenter and worked at Irrigation Pump. He was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church. Julius was an avid fisherman, mechanic, gardener and loved animals. He will be remembered by his family as being truly one of a kind and he will never be forgotten. We will miss him everyday but we take comfort in knowing he is safe and happy in Heaven with loved ones he was waiting a long, long time to see again. Now somewhere up above us there is a dog barking and extremely loud polka music playing. If you should find yourself in Heaven someday needing to know what time it is, just ask Julius....never without both of his 2 wristwatches, he will certainly be able to tell you.
