The Odessa Record -

Robert Leroi Schultz


March 15, 2018

Robert (Bob) Schultz would like to let you know his work here is done. He received a call, late afternoon on Sunday, March 4, 2018, while resting peacefully at the family farm where he was born and raised, for a trip he will not be returning from, but one that will reunite him with friends and family, including his parents, Adolph and Lydia Schultz also of Harrington.

Robert is survived by his wife Vivienne of 68 years, son Randy (Myra) Schultz, daughter Marita (Ed) Moriarity, son Rick (Juanita) Schultz, sister Lois Rogers and many loving grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, extended family and friend to everyone he met. In his 88 years, our father learned and passed on his knowledge to many, never burned a bridge and was always the last one to leave a gathering.

For all who knew him, he was an avid sportsman – from his early years working on hot-rods and stock cars, to hydroplanes and, most recently, following and supporting his grandkids, great-grandkids, nieces and nephews in their activities and racing. With Bob's passion for sports and his competitive spirit, he never met a race car or engine he couldn't make go just a little faster.

It's impossible to speak of our father without also speaking of our mother, because they were one. Together, they showed us what true love was like, the importance of family and always being there for each other.

A continued celebration of his life will be held on Monday, March 19, 2018, at the Strate Funeral Home Chapel, 505 10th St., in Davenport at 1 p.m. Burial will take place at the Harrington Cemetery, followed by a gathering (location to be announced at the celebration of Bob's life) in Harrington. Flowers can be sent or contributions can be made, in tribute to Robert's life to the Harrington Athletic Booster Club to help others enjoy what he spent his life doing - cheering on his own kids and generations of other young student athletes as they, too, follow their passion.
