Dr. Craig Nichols Schmall, a Carroll County chiropractor, died of lung cancer Aug. 19 at his Westminster home. He was 70.
Dr. Schmall was born in Baltimore and raised in Reisterstown, where he graduated from Franklin High School in 1951. He earned a bachelor's degree in biology in 1955 from what was then Western Maryland College.
He served in the Army for two years as a medical officer in Korea and attained the rank of captain. After his discharge in 1957, he attended the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago and earned a degree in chiropractic medicine.
Dr. Schmall began his practice in Westminster in 1961 and retired in May because of failing health. He was a member of the American Chiropractic Association and former board member of the Maryland Chiropractic Association.
He was a Baltimore Symphony Orchestra subscriber for 35 years and liked to visit Bermuda. He also enjoyed yardwork around his Westminster home, said his wife of 46 years, the former Mary Lee Younger.
A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Ascension Episcopal Church in Westminster, where Dr. Schmall had served as a vestryman, building fund chairman, assistant treasurer, lay reader and acolyte director.
Dr. Schmall also is survived by a son, Craig Randolph Schmall of Falls Church, Va., and many nieces and nephews.
