Duane Donald Schmitt, 83, of Hampton, Iowa, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, August 9, 2019, at the Franklin Country View Nursing Facility in Hampton. Duane was born November 20, 1935, on a farm near Beeds Lake, in Franklin County, Iowa, to Walter R. and Vera L. (Freie) Schmitt.

Duane attended Hampton High School in Hampton. He was united in marriage to Dixie Ann Mason on October 8, 1955, at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Hampton. Duane was a lifelong farmer, where he worked side-by-side with his children, passing on to them his strong work ethic. Duane also drove school bus for the Hampton-Dumont Community Schools for many years, which he thoroughly enjoyed, as he made many friends, young and old alike.

Duane was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Hampton. He was also a member of the National Guard, Ducks Unlimited, Friends of Beeds Lake, and Hampton Fish and Game.

Duane was an active volunteer of the Franklin County Fair for many, many years. He also enjoyed attending the Iowa State Fair; but mostly, Duane loved spending time with his family.

Duane is survived by his wife Dixie, daughter Teri (Rory) Fender of Hampton, daughter Tamra Schmitt of Hampton, daughter Traci (Bob) Kloetzer of Hampton, daughter Toni (Jorgen) Paulsen of Forest City, son Todd Schmitt of Hampton, grandchildren Jennifer (Garth) Spieker (Cade and Emma), Jessica Janssen (Kylee and Karter), Kaleb (Stephanie) Kloetzer (Hayden and Harrison), Paige Hoshaw (Hunter, Ryah and Vierra), Kaeli (Casey) Waechter (Brody and Evan), Payton Paulsen (Mathis, Merek and Maya), Piper Paulsen, Shayla Schmitt, Tate Schmitt, Tucker Schmitt, brother Wendell Schmitt of Hampton, several nieces, nephews, and extended family members.

Duane was preceded in death by his parents Walter and Vera (Freie) Schmitt and sister Elaine Behn.

Memorials may be directed to Trinity Lutheran Church in Hampton, Lutheran Hour Ministries and the Franklin County Fair.

Duane will be greatly missed by his beloved family and precious friends!
