Barnaby D. Schultz, a longtime resident of Stevens Point and Green Bay, passed away Friday, July 8, 2011 at the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King where he had been residing since 2005. He was 87.
Barnaby was born June 11, 1924 to the late Anton and Helen (Stoltz) Schultz as the youngest of six siblings, Dorothy, Irene, Thomas, Norbert (Nubbs) and Loretta (Rexie). Barnaby is the last surviving member of their family. He married Marie Helinski at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church on July 17, 1948. She died of cancer in 2002. He lived his life in a loving example of his Catholic faith, unselfishly giving and doing for others unconditionally. He was happy, humorous, very congenial and loving to everyone.
Barnaby grew up on Franklin Street on the north side of Stevens Point and graduated from P.J. Jacobs High school in 1942, where he played basketball, football and golf. He had a part-time job caddying at the Stevens Point Country Club during high school as well. After high school, he served on the Atomic Guard with the Coast Guard in Alaska. He also served in the Navy. After his discharge from the military, he studied and received his cosmetologist license from the Milwaukee School of Beauty Culture in 1952. He owned and operated Barnaby's Beauty Shop in Stevens Point for twenty-five years until 1972 when he joined Aerial Beauty Supply Co. for twenty years as a territorial manager and board of directors member. Barnaby was a very active member of the Nativity of Our Lord Parish in Ashwaubenon. In retirement, he enjoyed working several seasons at the Packer Stadium Skybox. Barnaby loved ice fishing, especially on Shawano Lake. Barnaby felt fortunate to be a nineteen-year colon cancer survivor and gave his support to others as well. He was a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a 4th Degree Knights of Columbus Honor Guard, serving a term as Grand Knight as well. Barnaby is survived by his four children, Barbara Bohm and her children, Betsy and Michael; his son, Michael (Melanie) Schultz and their two children, Cody and Keaton; his daughter, Susan (Michael) McCarthy and their four children, Sagan, Anissa, Dyer and Baylee; and Molly (Robert) Schumann and their two children, Christopher and Cora.
