> Dear Colleagues:

> Ken Schmidt, retired longtime Field Services Administrator for the Colorado
> Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, died on Sunday morning. He had brain
> cancer but was resting comfortably surrounded by family at the time of his
> passing. Ken was a part of the DVR family for a very long time and was seen
> by many as a mentor and even a father figure. I worked closely with Ken for
> over seven years and learned a great deal from him. He was loved and
> respected by many people in the field.

> Ken personified how someone's life can change for the better through using
> the services of the public vocational rehabilitation program. In addition to
> his extensive experience working with Colorado DVR, he also worked for Texas
> VR early in his career. Ken went on to earn a PhD from the University of
> Northern Colorado during his career in vocational rehabilitation. He also
> received numerous awards and recognition for his work in VR.

> Ken's family is finalizing arrangements for visitation and memorial
> services.  More information regarding the dates, times, and location for his
> visitation and memorial service will be communicated via the Ken Schmidt
> Memorial on the DVR website (www.dvr.colorado.com
> <http://www.dvr.colorado.com/> ) as soon as it becomes available.

> Please share this information with your contact networks.
