1954 - 2017
Larry W. Schultz of Kamloops passed away peacefully on Oct. 16, 2017 after a long courageous battle with cancer at the age of 63. He was born and raised in Vanderhoof B.C. Jan. 10 1954.
Larry is predeceased by his father and mother, Merle and Marie Schultz. He leaves behind his loving wife Linda, still holding hands after 41 years of marriage, and his little buddy, the ‘Ozman’. He also leaves behind his brothers Terry (Bev), Rob, Brian (Sherry) and sister Charmayne (Jim), brothers-in-law and sisters-in law, Carl & Pat, Joan, Wendy & Rob, Les & Chris. Larry had many nephews and nieces who thought of him as a fun loving, caring Uncle.
Larry’s working years began at age 13 on a farm, then to the ‘Royal Produce’ grocery store where he met Linda, his wife to be. In 1972 he began his career with the CNR and retired as a locomotive engineer in 2009.
Larry’s passion was anything outdoors, including trapping, hunting, fishing, and camping (especially cooking with his cast iron frypan over the open fire). His castle was his home, yard and vegetable garden. One of his favourite sayings was “I could sit on my deck all day and watch the dandelions grow.” He achieved all he ever wanted and there was nothing left on his bucket list. Larry had a good sense of humour and a strong belief of Common Sense. A quote he read and lived by every day: “There are two things to aim at in life: First, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.” Logan Pearsall Smith
