    Dear Elaine, Curt, Brian, and extended Schultz family,

    I’ve known and worked with Stan for 15 years and I will miss him very much! He was a wonderful light in the world and a great gentleman. His friendly manner and wonderful smile often made my day. He was so kind and helped me with advice on how to fix things, which was a wonderful help on numerous occasions. He taught me so much over the years and I enjoyed many and varied conversations with Stan. He loved you all so very much and often spoke with pride about his wife Elaine and his two boys Curt and Brian, as well as his much-loved grandchildren.

    I would like to extend my most heartfelt condolences for your loss and a wish for heart healing for all of you. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know and to spend time with your beloved Stan.
    Warmest regards and best wishes,
    Ursula Kurth,

  6. My deepest condolences to Stan’s family and friends. I was shocked to hear of his sudden passing.

    Stan always had a smile and a bounce in his step that I will miss seeing . Stan seemed to have an answer for whatever I needed and a “can do” attitude that is rare.

    I will truly miss seeing Stan at the office.

    Warm regards,
    Linda Morrell
