Plan Ahead

Schmollinger, Steven H.


On December 24th, 2020, Steven H. Schmollinger, a beloved husband and father, passed away at the age of 67. He is survived by his wife, Lynn, his siblings, Sandy and Paul, and his five children: Alex, Burke, Carlyle (Anthony), Wyatte (Tyler), and Mia. He was an adoring grandpa to five grandchildren: Cate, Isabel, Petra, Rosie, and Ptolian.

Steve was born on June 27, 1953 in Lodi, California to Herbert and Dorothy Schmollinger. He graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in economics and received an MBA from the University of Arizona. He served as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Guatemala. In 1986, Steve married R. Lynn Hayes and together they raised five children. He worked as a financial analyst for many years. From a young age, his true passions were photography and trains. Steve combined both of those interests to publish four successful railroad photography books. Throughout his life, he devoted himself to genealogy and church service, always ministering to those who could use a friend. Steve also loved model railroading, watching movies with his family, doting on his pets, and sharing his testimony of the Gospel with others. A friend to all, he will be deeply missed.

    So saddened by the loss of Steve. We had been in contact many times over the years, but a lot this year of 2020. We were starting to work together helping each other out with the Schmollinger ancestry. I will miss him.

    I knew Steve through my volunteer work with the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation (ORHF) in Portland, Oregon. I volunteered with him on the ORHF Holiday Express and at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center (ORHC) Doyle L. McCormack Enginehouse. He made the ORHF/ORHC a great place to volunteer. I also saw a lot of his railroad photography. I will miss him.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
