GEORGE J. SCHULTZ, age 87, a resident of Fairless Hill, PA, passed to eternal rest on December 27, 2019. He was born April 27, 1932 in Milwaukee, WI to George F. and Kathryn P. Schultz. The family moved in 1938 to Green Bay, WI where he graduated from Central Catholic High School and nearby St. Norbert College. He began his writing career during his last two years of college as news editor with two Green Bay radio stations. Upon graduation, Schultz went into active duty with the U.S. Army as a First Lieutenant assigned to the National Security Agency headquarters in Washington, DC. Upon completing his military service, he returned to Green Bay as reporter for the Green Bay Press Gazette. But Washington DC beckoned again and he returned there, first on a congressional staff and then as a public affairs officer with the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Department of Commerce. Subsequently, he transferred to the New York City Department of Commerce regional office at the World Trade Center, residing in West Windsor, NJ. After leaving the Department of Commerce, Schultz worked from his residence and also published his book Foreign Trade Marketplace. He was also employed by a few public relations and advertising firms, and was a contributing editor to various trade and technology magazines. As an avid sports lover, especially of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cubs, he coached his children's' youth soccer and baseball teams. He also volunteered with the media center at the 1994 World Cup Soccer tournament. Music was ever present and always playing in George's life. His passion for music helped him become a member of various choral groups. He performed with Voices Chorale in Princeton, NJ, Master Chorale in Haddonfield, NJ, and most recently with St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Morrisville, PA. He was also a member of the Princeton Society of Musical Amateurs. He is survived by his two sons and daughter, and four grandchildren -George A. and Pamela Schultz (Nicholas and Christopher) of West Windsor, NJ, John and Lori Schultz (Katie and Ian) of Littleton, CO, and Marianna Schultz and Darrion Heffner of Warminster, PA.
