Schultz, Carl A. "Pat'
Carl A. "Pat' Schultz, age 77, of Mesa Arizona, died unexpectedly Monday afternoon January 13, 2014 at his residence.
Carl was born December 2, 1936 in Two Rivers, Wisconsin son of the late Louis and Clara (Sosnosky) Schultz, Sr. He attended St. Luke's Parochial School and Washington High School, graduating with the class of 1955. He is a U.S. Navy Veteran, who served his country from 1955 to 1957. On August 6, 1966, he married Shirley Kuick at Holy Redeemer (Saint Peter the Fisherman) Catholic Church in Two Rivers. Carl was employed by Eggers Industries in his early years and also ran a flower shop in Manitowoc in the early seventies. Carl moved to Arizona in the mid-seventies and spent the next 40 years in the plant and landscape business first with Kmart, and then with a number of commercial landscape companies beautifying the Phoenix metropolitan "Valley of the Sun" area. After his retirement, Carl continued to take great pride in his personal residence and the beautiful citrus trees surrounding his property. He also was able to make extended visits back to Two Rivers and the lakeshore area to spend time with his siblings and many nieces, nephews and their families.
Carl was a faithful member of St. Bridget Holy Catholic Church in Mesa, Arizona. He is survived by one brother and sister-in-law, Earl (Lois) Schultz, Mequon, WI; three sisters and one brother-in-law, Louise Olson, Two Rivers; Shirley Holschbach, Manitowoc; Carol (Frank) Novy, Two Rivers; three sisters-in-law, Marilyn Schultz and Jane Schultz, both of Two Rivers; and Marie Schultz, Menomonee Falls, WI. He is further survived by good friends, Glenn and Lorraine Edwards, Mark and April Enniss, and Mike and Maxine Brooks of Mesa AZ; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
In addition to his parents and his wife, he was also preceded in death by six brothers and four sisters-in-law, Daniel (Thelma) Schultz, Robert (Grace) Schultz, Raymond Schultz, Leroy (Jean) Schultz, Dale Schultz, Louis Jr. (Ellie) Schultz; and one sister and three brothers-in-law, Leona (Richard) Wondrash, Harold Olson, Sr., and Orville Holschbach.
