Bob was born July 26,1940 in Niagara Falls, NY, to Fred R. and Alice (Howarth) Schultz. He died May 22, 2023 in Corpus Christi, TX at 82 years of age. He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister Margaret (Peggy) Hastings. He is survived by his wife Suzanne, sons Jeffrey Schultz and wife Frances of Conroe, Tx; Michael Schultz and wife Gera Lynn of Omaha, NE; and daughter Britt Stone and husband David of Corpus Christi. He is also survived by grandchildren Rachel Schultz, Kimberlee Castro, Felicity Schultz, Nickolas Schultz, Robert Clay Schultz, and Hannah and Zachary Stone and step-grandchildren Veronica Dickson, Jessika Rivera, Phillip and Nick Hernandez, and Lorena Dugan. Great grandchildren are Coheed, Axton, and Eris Castro; and Esther Dugan. Nephews are Bruce, Andrew, and James Hastings.
Bob grew up in Ransomville, New York enjoying hunting, fishing and sports. He was graduated from nearby Wilson Central School in 1957. He served in the Air Force in the 351st MIMS (SAC) missile squadron programing warheads in missile silos throughout the central U.S.
Bob was married to Toinette Jones September 10, 1966 until 1978. Employed by the DuPont company in New York, Bob moved his family to Baytown, Texas in 1972 when he transferred to the LaPorte, Texas plant. Bob and Suzanne met in 1985 and were married in 1987.
Bob worked for DuPont 28 years, first in operations and later managing a quality control laboratory. He took an early retirement, and with Suzanne traveled much of the U.S. and especially the Rocky mountains where Bob excelled at fly fishing for trout. Returning to work at the Hamilton Stores in Yellowstone National Park, Bob managed the Bridge Bay Marina store on Lake Yellowstone for four seasons.
Bob and Suzanne lived in Corpus Christi for many years and Bob enjoyed photography, flying RC aircraft (many of which he built by hand), and Astros baseball. In 2019 they moved to Ruidoso, NM and enjoyed jeeping, hiking, quarter horse racing and being outdoors. Last June Bob suffered a debilitating stroke, and they returned to Corpus Christi and the support of family.
Bob was baptized early into the Lutheran Church and was always in service to his church family. His faith led him to trek a portion of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Spain in 2013 at the age of 73.
Friends and family were important in Bob's life. He shared his sense of humor and easy going attitude with all those around him. He will be missed.
