Kenneth Schultz, 85

February 18, 2019

Kenneth E. Schultz passed away surrounded by family until his last breath, on Feb. 16, 2019.

Ken was born on July 18, 1933, in Beaver Dam. He married the love of his life, Joanne (Soldner), on May 28, 1955. They farmed together for many years growing crops, milking cows and raising their three children: Gregory(Jenine), Sandra(John) Schmitt and Rhonda(Gwenn) Soldner.

Ken was a member of Salem Lutheran Church and the Church Council in Lowell and a member of Lowell TrackMasters snowmobile club for many years.

He tried to get away from the farm as often as possible to go fishing. Traveling throughout the Midwest, Canada and Alaska in search of the next bite, he fished for muskie, bass, walleye and big fat perch. He loved to deer hunt on the farm and took on turkey hunting after he retired from farming.

Brother to Donna Mae, Wayne and Carolyn. Grandpa to Nick (Ashley) Schultz, Jenny (Aaron) Eberle, Angie (Jon) Christenson, Thomas Schmitt, Stephanie (Trevor) Thompson, Garrett Soldner(Becky Butler) and Amanda Soldner (fiance Shane Hackbarth). Great-grandpa to Jeremiah, Jackson, Jenna and Jesse Christenson, Drake Schultz, Sadie Eberle and Drew Thompson. He loved spending time with his family, attending sporting events, concerts and telling stories while visiting with them.

He is now in heaven with his parents, Gladys and Malvin Schultz; sister, Donna Mae; and his grandson, Thomas Schmitt.

The visitation will be at Salem Lutheran Church in Lowell on Friday, Feb. 22, 2019, from 10 a.m. until noon. The funeral service will follow at the church on Friday noon. A private burial for the family will follow after the service.

Psalm 121: The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
