Herman Henry Schultz


April 25, 2018

Herman passed away April 15, 2018, in Enumclaw, Washington, at the age of 87. Herman was born Sept. 11, 1930, in Parkers Prairie, Minnesota, to Henry and Emma Schultz.

He is survived by his wife, Phyllis, who he was married to for 58 years; and three sons, Darrell (Denise), David (Wendy), and Craig; grandchildren Destine (Bradley), Emerald (Dillon), Darrell, Tony, Trevor, and Arianna; great-grandchild Wyatt (Destine and Bradley); brothers Marvin, Floyd, Duane; sisters Orlene, Violet, and Betty; along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his daughter Connie and sisters Margret and Lucille.

Herman grew up and farmed in Minnesota and North Dakota as a child. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War as a sergeant and returned home to the United States, living in Renton to work at the Boeing Company, where he met the love of his life and married Phyllis Schultz (Nelson) on June 6, 1959. His next move took him to Hermiston, Oregon, where he farmed and worked at the Umatilla Army Depot. From there he moved to Goldendale with his family to again buy a small farm and work in the aluminum industry as a foundry operator until he retired. After many years in Goldendale, he moved for the last time to Buckley, Washington, where his wife and youngest son still reside.

Herman had a determination and work ethic that few individuals could match. He was also a man who would help in a time of need to friends and family, regardless of the situation. He relished the time family could be together and loved to dance, play cards, or go fishing.

The funeral service was at the grave site at the Tahoma National Cemetery on Tuesday, April 24.
