Todd and Candice Schmidt have been together for 16 amazing years. During that time, Todd was blessed with three children, Devin, Henry, and William. Together they had four dogs (two Pomeranians, Kush and Zeppelin and two Newfoundland's, Blaze and Nova) that brought much joy to his life. Todd and Candice made their home in Hutchinson, Minnesota with their children.
Todd enjoyed spending his time by being with his family, camping, gardening, playing games, going on bike rides, skiing, listening to music, watching kids do their activities, going on walks, searching for agates, and reading books to the kids. His favorite ways to relax were by taking a nice, long, HOT bath and cuddling up with his family watching a kid’s movie. Todd was the most kind and loving person. He loved to talk to anyone and everyone, always helping anyone who needed it whether he knew them or not.
