James A. Schulz, age 83 years of West Bend, passed away on Sunday, December 1, 2019 at Kathy Hospice. Jim was born on February 19, 1936 to Arthur and Bertina (nee Schmidler) Schulz in Random Lake, WI.

Jim attended and graduated from Random Lake High School in 1954. He married Monica Watry on February 1, 1958 in Dacada, WI. Beginning in high school, Jim worked as a mason for his father’s masonry business.

Jim and Monica enjoyed spending time with their family and friends through family camping trips. They also built and spent many days at their family cottage boating, water skiing and fishing. He was also a big sports fan, attending many Packers, Bucks and Brewers games as well as thousands of local softball and football games. In his later years Jim and Monica loved to travel; especially to Florida over the winter months.
