Donald A. Schultz

January 21, 1943 — June 3, 2023

Donald A. Schultz, age 80, passed away unexpectedly at Aurora Medical Center on Saturday, June 3, 2023. He was born to the late Alvin and Alvina (Heise) Schultz in the town of Black Wolf on January 21, 1943. Don married the love of his life, Judith A (Judy) Lyness, on September 11, 1965.


Don graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1961. He worked for Jeld Wen (Morgan Company) as a fork lift driver in the warehouse for 42 years.


Don liked to fish-be it summer or winter. Taking the ice shanties out each year to go ice fishing and sturgeon spearing on Lake Winnebago. Many people enjoyed his smoked fish that he caught on set-lines over the years. He was also known for his fried perch dinners he served at family gatherings. Don spent many years deer hunting with his long time friends Dick and Doug. Don was also into vegetable gardening and started to spend more time attending to his gardens than fishing. He spent many years on Saturdays and some Wednesdays selling produce at the Oshkosh Farmers Market and for a few years sold produce twice a month at the Evergreen Retirement Community. He was now selling the produce on Fridays at his gardens and would take the extra produce to the Salvation Army.


Don was also into wood working making anchors and selling them at the Farmers Market and at home.


Don is survived by his loving wife, Judy; sisters, Marion Schuelke, Arlene Soukup, Elaine Bowen, Evelyn Soward, and Dolores Schultz; brother, Alvin Schultz Jr.; sisters-in-law, Marcia Galica and Darlene Lyness; nieces, Heidi (Shawn) Christian, Buffi (Jason) Kremers, Cindy Verzal, Kim (Dave) Butz, Vickie (Tom) Michels, and Cathy Jupp; nephew, Ed (Betsy) Soukup, and several other nieces and nephews.


In addition to his parents, Don was preceded in death by his father-in-law and mother-in-law Ray and Ruby Lyness; his brothers-in-law, Tom Galica, Ken Lyness, Don Schuelke, and Ron Soukup; nephews-in-law, Larry Verzal and Ken Jupp.
