We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Irvin Schultz (1926-2015) at the age of 89 on Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
Irvin was pre deceased by his wife Dorothy of 53.5 years and infant son Clayton.
Irvin is survived by his sister Evelyn Posehn of Regina, Sask.; sister-in-law Ruth Schultz of Weyburn, Sask.; daughter Faye Schultz (Wilson); son Curtis Schultz (Tracey); grandchildren Christine Schultz (Turner), Hayley Warthe and Shyla Michaud (Brad); great grandchildren Bently and Sutton; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Irvin was born in Lang, Sask. in 1926 to Edward and Christina Schultz. Irvin had a large and loving family and was predeceased by his brothers Arthur, Albert, Ernie, Walter and Bernard Schultz.
Irvin married the love of his life Dorothy back in 1960 in Rocanville, Sask. They moved to Calgary in 1964 where Irvin found a job at Canada Malt, stayed on for 24 years and made a home for the family in Inglewood. A few years after retirement they decided to move to Fort Macleod where they made some very special friends.
Irvin had a great love for the outdoors. Whether it was camping, fishing or hunting he was excited to do them all. He hunted at home on the farm to help his family and it became a never-ending passion. Irvin and Curtis were hunting just last year and come home with plenty of laughs and stories to share.
Irvin had a great love for his children Faye and Curtis as well as all his grandchildren. He was always checking on them to make sure everything was okay. This year Irvin had a special opportunity to get to know his great grandson Bently. I believe Irvin had his whole hunting career all planed out for him (lol).
Irvin also loved to eat and would make sure to never miss a meal or a party that was serving food (lol).
He became quite light-footed near the end attending a dance every Thursday at the Braeside Community Centre. Wow, did he look forward putting on those cowboy boots every Thursday. Then along came Saturdays at the Legion on Horton Road. Boy could he pick the winning tickets, coming home with all sorts of meat and a smile on his face.
Irvin’s passing was sudden, however he did not suffer and for that we are thankful. He will be missed and is loved very much.
There will be a graveside service in Calgary in a few months’ time. We will make sure to notify friends and family.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Eden’s Funeral Home. Phone 403-553-3772 or visit www.edensfuneralhome.com.
