Barry Marshall Schmit was born on Dec. 2, 1956 , in Orange, Calif., the son of Mary Ellen (Rogers) Schmit and the now late Kenneth G. Schmit.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Janet (Mahoney) Schmit, who died in 2002.

The Schmit family lived in several Southern California cities including San Diego, Highland and Claremont.
