Marron Michael Schultz (aka Mike Schultz) passed away on July 13, 2019 in Gainseville, MO. He was born March 9, 1942.
Mike graduated from Bayfield High School in 1960 before going to meat-cutting school and working as a butcher in Duluth, MN for several years. He decided to chase his dreams by moving to sunny southern California. In California Mike was frequently found at the palladium dancing to Lawrence Welk or listening to the music at Cal’s Corral in Huntington Park, with many weekends spent up at Big Bear.
After quite a few years he moved to Houston, TX, then back to California before finally returning to Bayfield where he started a garbage collection route. Mike then sold that very successful business and started the “Master Bait Farm” worm farm, as well as getting into the birch bark business. It was in the birch business where he established a wholesale market supplying gift shops in a 150-mile radius with birch bark products he produced. Upon retirement he moved to Salome, AZ, and then on to Texas before finally settling in the Gainesville, MO area.
Mike is fondly remembered as a fun-loving guy who enjoyed a good party.
Mike is preceded in death by his mother, Ceil (Galazen) Schultz and father, Mike Schultz.
He is survived by brothers Jason (Bayfield), Neil (Iron River); and sister Julie Rorers (Minnesota).
Per Mike’s request, private services will be held.
