In Loving Memory

Schulz, Roland K.

November 21, 1934 - August 13, 2023

We are profoundly sad to announce the passing of Roland K. Schulz on August 13, 2023. Roland died peacefully at Garden View Nursing Home with his family beside him.

As a teen, Roland was a Boy Scout and made Eagle!  He was in the Airforce National Guard after graduating from High School.  Roland was successful in sales for Royal and Panasonic Copier Divisions.  He held the position of Vice President of Sales before he retired. Roland loved to travel and took his wife on many adventures overseas.  He was a respected businessman but could be a farmer by just changing his clothes.  He loved to ride his tractor, four wheeler, six wheeler and motorcycles.  His favorite past times were fishing, hunting, eating ice cream and fresh pastries!  He loved playing pranks and having fun!   Roland loved life and was proud of his German heritage.  He will be missed by many!

Roland was born in St. Louis, MO on November 21st, 1934.  Preceded in death by his wife Rita Mae Schulz (nee Scheman), Harry and Marie Schulz (nee Kraehn) parents, Marion Lewis (nee Schulz), Doris Bottems (nee Schulz) his nieces (Denise, Leslie).  He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.

  1. I work in activities at the nursing home Roland resided at. Roland was a great guy. He was always a nice guy. He had a good sense of humor. Roland always had interesting things to say be it things from his life or things from history. Roland was a very smart guy and knew a lot. He made friends with many other residents who will miss him. Roland attended men’s club religiously. The only times he didn’t come was if he couldn’t attend due to circumstances beyond his control. For the longest time Roland had been wanting to see the movie Hack Saw Ridge at men’s club, which he hadn’t seen in years. A few months before his passing i got a hold of the movie. When I told him I got it, he was thrilled. Afterwards he expressed how happy he was that he got to see it again. Two other things I’ll never forget about Roland was his love of the Cardinals ( even this season) and that you would never see him without a baseball cap. Roland will be deeply missed. My deepest condolences to Kim and the rest of the family. He is in a better place with Rita. May Roland’s memory be a blessing. May he rest in peace. So long Roland.

  2. I worked with Roland at Panasonic many years ago. I always respected and admired him. He did have a daily sense of humor that helped all of us through each day. Last time I spoke to Roland was about 15 years ago on the phone. I wish I had called again. He is in my fond memories.

  3. I worked for Roland at Panasonic and travels around the country with him. He was a great guy and loyal friend who will always be special to me. My soul rest in peace!
