A Memorial to Bluebirds fans who have sadly passed away.

Sad day for all (German) Bluebirds (RIP Walt)

Postby Hofmeister » Sat Sep 22, 2012 10:18 pm

just heard of the dealth of my old mate and Cardiff fan Walter "Sir Walt" Schmitt.

Image

Known him for a few years, we met at Sheff.Utd during one of our away games, funny thing was he came from the same area as me, but we didnt have a lot of German footie in common:

he grew up in Frankfurt, was one of Eintracht's lads
I grew up on Offenbach's terraces, Frankfurt's most bitter rivals...

he retired from the scene a while ago and had a childhood love for Borussia Dortmund,
I grew up loving Schalke, Dortmund's big rival...

He was sound as f**k, a great guy to be around with, always lauging, sharing a joke, loving football, a good drink...

Can't believe he's gone, just spilled a few tears for him, apparently he died a few weeks back, I just found out about it...

R.I.P. Walt, you'll be missed

no, 3 years older than me... we joked we could have met on "active service" outside a german ground...

and when we first met I asked "are you from the Hesse region?" he said yea he was and I asked what team there? He said Eintracht, and I replied in the old days we would have a one on one now as I was born Offenbach... he laughed and said: "f**k it, we are both Cardiff and too old for that shit now..." :ayatollah:

just spoken to a mate of his, Borussia Dortmund supporters club. Walt was found dead in his flat lying in his own blood, he died of a cerebral infarction, fell down and his head hit the floor. He was dead instantly, didnt have to suffer or anything...

His friends at Borussia Dortmund commemorated him with a banner.... :ayatollah:

R.I.P. again, my friend

Good read and pics. Out of interest, how did you and Walt get into watching Cardiff Hof? I've got a German mate in Gummersbach who follows Dortmund and he took me and my son to a game last season. Es war toll!

Walt got hooked by the Bluebirds years ago, like me, through the atmosphere we had at Ninian Park...

So sorry to hear of the death of Walt , he sounded a fantastic chap and for his fans to honour him with that banner etc shows the respect people had for him. Best wishes to you at this difficult time.
