Ralph W. Schulz
Ralph W. Schulz, 84, Hustisford passed away on Monday, November 12, 2012 at the Aurora Medical Center in Hartford.
He was born on February 26, 1928 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, son of the late William and Dorothy (Scheibe) Schulz.
Ralph married Myrtle (Dobratz) of Wauwatosa on July 1, 1950 at Zoar Ev. Lutheran Church in Milwaukee.
Ralph was a graduate of Milwaukee Boys’ Tech High School, class of 1946.
In 1954, Ralph and Myrtle moved to Hustisford where they spent the better part of a decade operating their dairy farm. After farming, Ralph’s entrepreneurial ventures included livestock and general trucking, and real estate sales, appraisal services, property management and general contracting.
In his earlier years, Ralph enjoyed playing accordion in his own band in the Milwaukee area. As time went on, his love of music and dance kept him happy and young at heart. Other interests included traveling, playing cards and spending time with his family. Later, bird watching and cruising Lake Sinissippi on his pontoon boat were favorite pastimes.
Ralph is survived by Myrtle, his wife of 62 years; one daughter: Carol (William) Donlin, of Madison, Ohio; five sons: Robert, Donald, both of Hustisford; David (Jane) of Cedarburg; James of Sullivan and Daniel (Anne) Weber-Schulz of Pueblo West, Colorado; one brother, Earl (Alice) of Hustisford; 13 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his oldest grandson, Shawn Schulz and his nephew, Ronald Schulz.
