Alan C Schmoldt (1989) Commemorative Letter

A special creative spirit came into the Schmoldt family on May 11, 1989 in Takoma Park. He spent 10 years of bringing great joy into his immediate and extended family. He had cousins that whenever they got together he became the ringleader of the group. They loved to do plays together and the props often came from his backpack. Curiosity and creativity were the hallmarks of his spirit. He had the ability to create something out of almost nothing. Most children would expect their parents to buy them what they wanted, but not Alan. He could create what he wanted out of whatever materials he could discover. One of his favorite things at our house was to pull down the attic and get up and see what new piece of material he could use to make something. His greatest joys were in the things he made. Whether it was a pokemon, a bow and an arrow, a sling shot, or the borrowers belt filled with treasures patterned after the Borrowers movie or his batman capes or mask. He just loved to make costumes.
