Dennis Lee Schmidt

February 15, 1945 ~ November 22, 2021 (age 76)


Madison - Dennis L. Schmidt (AKA "Otto", and "MenAce") of Madison, Wisconsin, passed on November 22, 2021 surrounded by loved ones. Dennis, born February 15, 1945 in Madison, was the son of Norbert and Bernice. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Cheri; sister, Kitty; children, Heather (Jason), Andrew (Lisa), Nicholas (Sarah), and Michael; and grandchildren, Corey, Lily and Max.

Dennis was a lifelong golfer, an avid Wisconsin sports fan, and never met a stranger. He was fiercely loyal, selfless to a fault, and will be missed by many. The family would like to thank GHC and Dr. George Leydon, as well as the staff at UW Hospital who took such great care of Dennis.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring. Please see the Ryan Funeral Home website for further information. The family welcomes donations to Special Olympics Wisconsin, a cause Dennis regularly supported. To view and sign this guestbook, please visit:
