Ronald J. Schmitt

April 24th,1933 - September 27th, 2009


It is with great sadness that I must report to you that Ronald J. Schmitt, my father, and the Proprietor and Founder of the Gourmet Toolbox, has succumb to an illness he was fighting on September 27th, 2009 and has gone home to be with our Creator.

I thank each and every one of you, Dad's customers, for the joy you have given him through allowing him to be of service to you.  We are trying to determine how best to continue his legacy by continuing his online business pursuits, and continuing to honor and service your needs, as his customers.

During this difficult transition period, if you have any particular needs or wants, please send an e-mail to

I will try to locate and send you the products you desire.  I would most especially like to hear from you on how my Dad and you were connected.  Again, I appreciate all the orders you have sent him.  It gave him purpose and drive in his later years.
