Eugene “Gene” D. Schultz was born in Anoka, then a trip to the “old” Anoka hospital on Aug. 3, 1958. On May 1, 2019, Gene passed away at Abbott-Northwestern Hospital.
He is following in death his mother, Kathleen Schultz; his brother James; and leaves behind brothers Mike, David and Darren, and one sister Dawn; also his son Jesse Schultz; grandchildren Austin and Zachary Schultz and many other nieces, nephews, cousins and aunts and uncles.
Gene worked as a “49er” for many years, also as a farm hand. Gene lived life his way, and this is what led to his death at this early age. He was a free-spirited man who ended up paying for it in the end.
Early in life he enjoyed his family, fishing, water skiing, hunting, shooting bow and going to his son’s sporting events. There were good times and bad.
Celebration of his life will be held at Spirit River Community, 1321 Heritage Blvd., Isanti, MN (south entrance of the church) on Saturday, July 27, 2019, from 1-4 p.m. Interment at a later date.
