Manfred Schmidt

In Memorial

“Gone Sailing”
Born in Hamburg, Germany October 14,1934 passed away peacefully in Port Moody, BC on April 8, 2011. He was a wonderful husband, father and Opa. Mourning his passing are daughter Karen; son-in-law Brian; grandchildren Kira and Caden, as well as numerous relatives in Germany including his brothers. Manfred is predeceased by his loving and beautiful wife Lisa only a few short months ago. Manfred had an adventurous spirit, and truly loved sailing the BC Coast with one of the many boats he built. Gibsons Marina was like a second home to him.
At this time, we would like to thank all the wonderful staff at Crossroads Hospice, as well as the staff at Willow Manor for all their kindness throughout the last year. We will be having a memorial luncheon at 1pm on Sunday May 29th at Pebbles restaurant in Sechelt.
We welcome you to join us in remembering Manfred on this special day. If you have any questions, feel free to email Karen at

  2. I never met Mr. Schmidt but I recently purchased “Minka”, a boat that he had buillt by Dave Fernie in 1980. She was named after his mother in Hamburg (her nickname).
    What a remarkable little ship!
    I would have loved to have met this gentleman.
    Best wishes to all of his loved ones.
