RIP Howard Schmidt- Sawyers Building Supply of Santa Maria

I was shocked today to learn of Howard Schmidt’s sudden death last month of a heart attack. Sawyers is a small business I like to support and purchase some of my materials from and I’d always gotten along well with Howard.

Can’t say I knew him well, but he was a nice guy and the construction community in Santa Maria/San Luis Obispo will certainly miss him.

Howard wasn’t much older than I, and I guess his sudden passing should be a warning to us all to get a check up, stay healthy and most of all, appreciate every day that you get on this earth.

RIP Howard.
