Share this story

Werner O. Schmidt, left, was one of the founders of the GIS Program in Ontario.

AWMAC’s Ontario chapter has shared “with sadness that Werner O. Schmidt has passed away.
“Werner was a long-standing, respected member of AWMAC, a leader and one of the founders of the GIS Program in Ontario. Even when Werner stopped working and was enjoying his retirement, he still had an enthusiasm for AWMAC and continued his support where he could.
“In 2020 at the AWMAC Ontario Awards Dinner, Werner was awarded the AWMAC Ontario Director’s Award in honour of his leadership, service and support of AWMAC. Werner will be missed!” 

His daughter has shared the following message:
Werner Otto Schmidt (27/08/36 - 22/01/22)
Werner, cabinetmaker, father, and grandfather died peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of his family.  He was only briefly ill but went out of this life with the same enthusiasm and sense of adventure that he lived every day.
Werner was one of the founding members with the Architectural Millworkers in Ontario and Canada - and always spoke highly of the excellent work done by the members. Most memorable were the many annual meetings/parties he helped to organize!
As a result of COVID, we will not be having any celebrations for him at this time. If you wish to be notified when we do have an event (hopefully this summer), please contact Werner’s daughter Kirsten 

Proudly serving the industry since 1987
