Obituary: Johnny Schultz

A viewing will take place on Friday, Jan. 26 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Lewis Funeral Home in Moorestown.

Johnny Schultz, who is remembered by family and friends for his sense of humor and his kindness, passed away in his sleep Monday, Jan. 22. He was 64.

He was born to John Schultz and Lily Croita on May 10, 1953. He spent his formative years in Moorestown, graduating from Moorestown High School in 1972. Through his high school days, he could be found on the football field, where he played Tackle. He was No. 77 (his lucky number).

For nearly 50 years, he owned his own painting and home restoration business. He could probably point to any house within a 50 mile radius of Moorestown and tell you exactly what he had worked on.

An outdoorsman at heart, in the summer, he spent his weekends on his boat with his best friend at Lake Lenape. He had an eye for the eagles’ nest and the wildlife that dotted the shores. His outdoor adventures were always boisterous stories. He spoke often of the times spent at the Grand Canyon with friends, camping or misadventures in his beloved MG. There are, in fact, too many stories to condense into one piece, and it would be an injustice to try.

He loved to laugh and make people laugh. He was good at it. His sense of humor stayed constant through all the difficulties life threw his way. He is sorely missed.

Schultz, as he liked to say, “was rode hard and put away wet.” He is survived by his daughter, wife and sister.

A viewing will take place on Friday, Jan. 26 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Lewis Funeral Home located at 78 E. Main Street in Moorestown. Interment will be private at the Birmingham Lafayette Cemetery in West Chester, Pa.
