January 11, 2022 – West Bend, WI – Conrad Raffay Schmidt, 23, of West Bend, WI died January 8, 2022, from injuries suffered in a snowmobile accident. He was born August 7, 1998, to Dale and Jill Schmidt. Conrad was raised in West Bend and graduated from Slinger High School.
Conrad loved spending time with his family, especially Monday night dinners with his grandma and grandpa Raffay and cousins.
Conrad’s friends were very important to him, and he was their go-to guy. Together, they shared many interests. He enjoyed playing soccer, disc golfing, online gaming, target shooting, camping on the WI River, wake boarding, snowmobiling, riding his motorcycle, and just hanging out at Allen’s house.
Conrad was interested in learning how anything and everything worked. He was most comfortable sitting back, observing a crowd, and selectively providing his own witty commentary.
Conrad was employed at Weix Industries and was looking forward to achieving his journeyman status.
Conrad is survived by his parents, Dale and Jill (Raffay); his brother, RJ; his sister, Sarah (Mitchell) Erickson; his nephew, Tiago; and grandparents, Sandra and Ronald Raffay, Lynn and Wayne Peters. He is further survived by his Godparents, Wendy Luengen and Scott Peters, aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.
He is preceded in death by his great-grandparents, his grandfather, Kenneth Schmidt, uncle Dean Wolfe, aunt Kathy Schmidt, and his beloved dog, Emily.
