Dexter R. "Dutch" Shultz

NAHANT, MA Mr. Dexter R. "Dutch" Shultz, age 82, died peacefully on Monday at his home after a brief illness. He was the husband of the late June C. (Clark) Shultz. Born in Bennington, VT, he was the son of the late Dexter G. and Lillian (Brundage) Shultz. He was raised and educated in North Bennington, VT and also attended the Spartan School of Aeronautics in Tulsa, OK. He had lived in Nahant since the early 1960's.

Dexter was a mentor to many and will be lovingly remembered by his family as a true jack-of-all-trades and the go-to person when something needed to be done.
