David Earl Schultz

1949 - 2015
David Earl Schultz June 18, 1949 - January16, 2015 David was born June 18, 1949, in Lakeport, CA, to his parents, Patricia Lee McIntire and Elbert Earl Scroggins. When his father passed away, David was adopted by Robert Schultz. Partially raised on the McIntire Ranch, he would help his grandparents work on the ranch he dearly loved. In David's pre-teen years he was very active in 4-H. He raised steers from the Holdenried Ranch, but his favorite 4-H project was his pig, Gaylord. David attended Clear Lake High School and graduated in 1967. Soon after, David joined the Navy and served in San Diego. After the Navy, he moved to Sonoma County and worked for Sonoma County Social Services where he met and married Carmen Schultz, a colleague, and embraced her daughter, Julia Arteaga as his own. They had two other children, Christopher and Sarah Schultz. He and his family moved from Rohnert Park to Lakeport where he worked for Unocal at the Geysers. He was a loving, doting father and family was his number one priority. He was very much involved in all his children's activities and school work. He took his family on yearly camping trips to Rice Creek, snow skiing in Tahoe, and coached his children's soccer, baseball, and football teams. David was an athletic man, an avid golfer and generally loved all sports, but especially relished baseball as he coached and played in adult leagues. Politically astute, David appreciated political discussions and was a trivia buff; ask him any question and he had an answer. David was truly an incredible man; his witty humorous personality was loved by all and will truly be missed. He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Carmen Schultz; daughter, Julia Arteaga (Marc Carithers); two grandchildren, Maya Carithers and Philodice Schultz; his sisters, Linda (Mike) Fullerton, and Jackie (Teddy) Rodrigues; also, nieces and nephews. David is reunited with his son, Christopher Schultz, daughter, Sarah Schultz, and his mother and father. We love you David, give them a kiss from us. "Stronger than dirt." Memorial service will be at 10 a.m., Saturday, January 24, 2015, at Chapel of the Lakes Mortuary, Lakeport. Please share your memories by signing the guest book at www.legacy.com.
