Jeffrey C. Schmieg, 61, of Waterloo, IL, passed away March 5, 2021, at de Greeff Hospice House.
Jeff was born December 14, 1959, in St. Louis, MO and moved with his family to Waterloo at 3 years old, where he lived the rest of his life.

Jeff is preceded in death by his parents Clinton C. & La Verne (nee Thornton) Schmieg.
He was a member of SS Peter & Paul and graduated from Gibault High School. Jeff was a fun and generous man. A gentle giant. He was witty, loved to read, and enjoyed trivia. Jeff followed in his fathers footsteps working at Cerro Flo Products for 42 years, something he was very proud.
