SCHMIEDGE, Kirk Dale

May 9, 1971 – May 9, 2012

It was with great courage, strength and determination that Kirk (Target) crossed the finish line of this leg of his race on his 41st Birthday at 5:36pm, the same day and time he entered this world in 1971.

Kirk (Target) will always be cherished by his loving wife and best friend Cindy (Aiello); his children Markus and Taiya; his parents Arlene (Ray) Pelletier and Dennis Schmiedge; sister Dana (Scott) Seebach; and his Grandmother Jean Schmiedge. He will be forever remembered by his extended family of parents, sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Kirk lived life with no regrets and always honoured what was important to him. He was an incredible husband and father who enjoyed sharing his love of sports with his family. Target was a national water polo player, an avid cyclist and a passionate hockey goalie. He was an inspiration to not only his many teammates but also his family, friends and fellow Calgary Police members. Kirk dedicated, loved and took great pride in being a respected member of the Calgary Police Service. It was a blessing that he found his true calling in so many areas of his life.

We will never forget how he touched our lives. In lieu of flowers, Kirk established a sports fund for his children to continue his legacy. Donations can be made through the Kirk Schmiedge Fund at Calgary Police Credit Union( 5111 – 47 Street N.E., Calgary, AB T3J 3R2)

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Funeral Services will be held at RockPointe Church (Corner of Lochend Road and Hwy 1A) on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Kirk Schmiedge, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs Park Cochrane by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    Cindy, Marcus, Taiya,
    We are so saddened by the loss of Kirk. When ever I think of Kirk the first thing that comes to mind is his smile, he had the warmest smile and always made you feel that he was truly happy to see you when he flashed that smile. I love the photo you picked of him – it really shows that beautiful smile. I have cried many tears for all of you, both during this journey and since Kirks passing. His legacy is strong. Kirk will never be forgotten, you all have a guardian angel now who’s name you know. We are here for you Cindy. Love Ciara and Randy.
