Edward James Schmitt

Edward James Schmitt, 65, of Kihei, passed away on Sunday, March 21, 2021. He was born to William and Laurie Schmitt in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on June 19th, 1955.
Edward grew up in Wayne, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Conestoga High School (class of 1973). He studied at Southwest Minnesota State University, Cabrillo College, and Temple University, where he received his Bachelor’s degree. For several peripatetic years, he lived in a variety of places across the United States and had a number of adventures, such as working on fishing boats off the coast of Alaska. He first came to Hawaii as a fisherman in the late 1980s and immediately felt at home. After working as a taxi driver in Honolulu for a few years, he settled in Kihei where he worked as a taxi driver and a security guard and helped design and build a fishing boat.
Edward was a kind man who lived a simple life and marched to his own drummer. He enjoyed swimming. He loved to read and was a regular visitor to the library. He followed current events avidly and argued passionately about politics.
He is greatly missed by his father, William F. Schmitt, his stepmother, Joan Schmitt, his sister, Johanna Schmitt, his stepsisters Caren Diamond and Liane Robinson, and his stepbrother Alan Schleifer. His mother, Laurie Schmitt, preceded him in death.

Memorial services scattering of ashes will be private.
