(Kim) Schultz all of IN., his grandchildren, Sophia, Lilliana, Kevin, Brooklyn and Natalie, and great grandchild, Ryan Kieninger.

He entered the U.S. Army in 1980 and served as a proud Active Armored Crewman. Afterward, He worked in construction and built houses all his life. He was a hard working provider. Woodworking was his specialty. He was always good with his hands. He was an amazing abstract artist. He also had a green thumb just like his mom. He loved to garden and be one with nature. His passion was fishing. He would stand by the water for hours and feel at peace. He blessed his kids with so many wonderful memories of early morning fishing trips teaching them his skills. His icons included John Wayne and Bruce Lee, and he harnessed their essence daily by always dressing his best, and having his legendary hairstyle in place. He was a man of few words, but still had a powerful presence that impacted everyone around him. Most of all, he loved his mother with all his heart and she was his favorite person. He also loved all of his siblings and had so many fond memories of adventures with them. His most fond memories were of them fishing together. He was a good humored, quick witted, and strong willed man, that never let anything stand in his way, and he will forever be in our loving memories.
