Schultz, Warren Gene (27 April 1945 - 15 May 2022)

Warren G. Schultz, 77, of Thorp, formerly of New Berlin, passed away at his home on Sunday, May 15, 2022.

Warren Gene Schultz was born on April 27, 1945, in Wausau, the son of Walter R. and Eleanor E. (Hoeppner) Schultz. He was raised in Wausau until his family moved to Milwaukee when he was young. While in high school, he had a passion for drag racing, building his own hotrods and racing during the summers. Warren completed his education in Milwaukee, graduating from Pulaski High School in 1963. Following high school, he went to work for the Milwaukee Road Railroad. Warren later married his second wife, Terrie Draeger on October 23, 1999, in West Allis. Warren retired from the railroad April 30, 2005, as a locomotive engineer, and moved to the Town of Butler, rural Thorp, where he built his retirement home. He spent his days in the outdoors that he loved, hunting and fishing.

He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Thorp, a member of the NRA, and loved hunting and watching NASCAR.

His family and friends were very special to him, especially his children and grandson; sisters Germayne and Bernice; nieces Christal, Valerie, and Ann and nephew Jay; his hunting buddies Jay, Joe, Jimmy, Wally and Mike; and his neighbors.

Warren is survived by his two children: Natalie Scott of Mt. Pleasant, and Gerald Schultz of West Allis; one grandson: Zachary Scott; and one sister: Germayne Schulz of White Bear Lake, MN. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Terrie; and one sister: Bernice Dowden.
