Harold G. Schultz was born on June 4, 1927 in Waupun, son of the late George and Mary (nee Resop) Schultz.

He attended Waupun High School until his sophomore year before enlisting in the U.S. Navy during World War II. After being honorably discharged from the Navy, he married his hometown sweetheart Mildred Kovalaske on April 14, 1948.

Harold graduated from MATC Barber College before being hired as a mechanic at Continental Can Company in Milwaukee where he worked for 32 years.

He enjoyed fishing, bowling, polka dancing, playing sheeps-head and blackjack.

Harold was very handy with projects around the house.

He enjoyed telling his life stories to his children and grandchildren and his specialty was making them laugh. Harold also said, "There is nothing like a cold beer!"

We will miss him dearly.

Harold is survived by his beloved wife Mildred (Kovalaske) of 59 years. He was the loving dad of Nancy (Mike) Janasiak of Saukville, Karen (Keith) Jones of Grafton, Sue (Steve) Hubing of Belguim and Sandy (David) Hackbarth of Grafton; the proud "Grandpa" of Scott Schultz of West Bend, Tim Schultz of the U.S. Navy, Nick (Shoua) Janasiak of Fredonia, Melissa (Karl) Peterson of Menomonee Falls, Kory, Kristopher and Kyle Jones of Grafton, Kelly Hubing of Belgium, Tanya Riebe of Grafton, and Kala and Bryce Hackbarth of Grafton. He is further survived by nieces and nephews, and friends.

Harold was preceded in death by his son Wayne Schultz; his brother Alvin Schultz; and his sister Lorraine Schultz.
