Sean Christopher Schultz
Sean Christopher Schultz of St. Louis, Missouri died on April 2, 2013 at the age of 27. He was born on September 12, 1985 at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, Missouri to Ann and Kim Schultz. Throughout his life, Sean followed his dreams. He studied to become an audio engineer at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. After graduation he worked for a recording studio in New York City. He then toured the world with the band Mutemath, serving as their audio engineer.
After touring, he returned to his hometown of Springfield, MO and met Sarah Gummels. They were engaged with plans to marry. They lived in St. Louis, MO where Sean worked for Apple, teaching others how to use his favorite technology. Sean also loved to be on the river, fishing with his father, and was a member of the Missouri Trout Fisherman's Association (MTFA). On April 1st Sean suffered head trauma after a fall. He was pronounced brain dead the next day. Honoring Sean's wishes, he was transported to Midwest Transplant for organ donation. He was able to donate several of his organs so that others may have life.
Sean is survived by his parents Ann and Kim Schultz, fiancé Sarah Gummels, sister Jenn Simmons, brother-in-law Brent Simmons and nephew, Desmond Simmons; grandparents, Jean and Sam Schultz, Aunt Karla Ebrahimzadeh and her two daughters Erica and Jess, Uncle Kirk and Aunt Michelle Schultz and their three sons Trevor, Trent and Turner; Uncle Eugene Craker and countless friends. Sean was preceded in death by grandparents, Claude and Joyce Craker.
