Karl Schulz Obituary
Schulz, Karl

Karl Arthur Schulz, 84, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Appleton, WI surrounded by his loving family. Born to Edward and Meta Schulz, Karl lived most of his life in Oshkosh and was a cherished brother of 3 sisters and 3 brothers.

Karl is survived by his wife Patricia and his beloved children Kathryn (Bruce) Heling, Kristine (Larry) Scovil, Karl (Nancy) Schulz, Tricia (Ken) Stertz and Amy (Craig) Haberkorn. Karl took great joy in his 12 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

Karl was a talented woodworker, builder, engineer, hunter, writer and poet, retiring from a 28-year career with the Leach Company in Oshkosh as Director of Product Safety. Karl had a great love for his wife and family and served as a Big Brother. He had a reverence for the outdoors and for animals of all kinds. Karl was a long time member of the South Side Ice Yacht Club, Otter Street Fishing Club, Elks Club and Toastmasters International. In retirement, Karl volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Marian Manor, Mercy Medical Center, Menomonee Park's Little Oshkosh play area and Oshkosh Senior Center.

Visitation will be Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home (Westside). A Memorial Service to celebrate Karl's very full and productive life will follow.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society would be appreciated. The family extends a special thanks to the wonderful staff of St. Elizabeth's Cardiac Care Unit and ICU for the compassionate care they showed Karl and his family in his final hours.

Sometimes when I'm all alone,

and no one else can see,

a tear comes in remembrance,

of folks who favored me.

Each one a brilliant jewel,

a priceless memory gem,

and I vow if I am able,

to be as much like them.

So, when my time is over,

and the world has set me free,

I hope there'll be at least one someone

who will remember me.
