HERBERT H. SCHULTZ
May 4, 1932 September 25, 2021
He was born at home on the farm in La Broquerie, MB, where he worked hard as a child and young man. He was the third youngest son of nine children. He met the love of his life for 67 years, Eileen Fernsel at a country wedding. They were married and lived in a small rooming house in Winnipeg, eventually building their first home.
Soon after they started a family and were blessed with three children, Wayne (Shelley), Teresa (Larry) and Barbara (Michael). When his kids started to play sports, whether it was baseball or hockey, he was extremely proud of them, driving them to early morning practices and travelling to tournaments where he made lifelong friends. With the arrival of grandchildren, Erin, Ian, Jamie, Sara, Rebecca, Adam, Justin, Ryan and Elise, he continued to be the biggest fan, following them to their many games, concerts and activities.
Herb worked in the steel industry with Drummond McCall for 32 years. He ended his career as plant manager, retiring in 1990, earning the respect and friendship of all who worked with him.
His passion for sports led him to a part time job with Winnipeg Enterprises for 30 plus years, as a parking lot attendant. This was not so much about the money as it was about the free entrance to Jets and Bombers games. He remained a loyal fan right until this year's Banjo Bowl.
After retiring at 57, Herb and Eileen hit the road in their fifth wheel and spent several winters in Texas. His retirement years were spent with family and many friends. Herb loved to play cribbage and rook, enjoyed a good meal, watching sports, game shows and taking strolls around The Manor.
His 11 great-grandchildren brought him happiness. He loved teasing the little ones by poking them with his cane and watching them giggle. His smile and jokes will be missed by many.
Generous with his time and always concerned about others well being, "Herbie" will be sorrowfully missed by many nephews, nieces, his two sisters and three sisters-in-law. He was strong in his faith, as a lifetime member at Church of the Cross and is now resting in his eternal home.
He will be remembered for his kind heart and gentle spirit.
The family would like to extend thanks to the Cardiology team at St. Boniface Hospital.
Celebration of Herb's life will be on October 2, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Lutheran Church of the Cross, 560 Arlington Street, Winnipeg. Interment to follow at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery on Hwy. 12, Steinbach, MB. The family requests only fully vaccinated individuals attend.
If friends so desire donations in Herb's memory may be made to Luther Village, 560 Arlington Street, Winnipeg, MB R3G 1Z5 or to a charity of one's choice.
"We will miss you forever"

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I am deeply saddened by the passing of Herb Schultz. Herb was a devoted member of Lutheran Church of the Cross. When I was first hired as organist of this church Herb was the first to greet me. I can still remember his warm smile and strong handshake. He made me feel like I was one of the family as did his lovely wife Eileen. Herb was a very kind and loving person who would go out of his way to help at anytime. He also was a faithful member of Lutheran Church of the Cross, serving on the church council and doing other administrative jobs. Herb was a strong believer in God. I remember him telling me once that it was important to live a Christian life and believe that Jesus came to save us so we may have eternal life in heaven. He supported me in so many ways and always had a kind word whenever he saw that I was down. It was something that I will always remember about Herb. Eileen and Herb raised three lovely children Wayne, Teresa, and Barbara. Wayne took after his father by becoming chairman on the church board and devoted much time to Luther Village. I feel badly that I wasn't able to attend the funeral and say a final good-bye to such a dear friend as Herb because due to health problems I could not take the vaccine. In closing I pray that the good Lord will be with you in your time of sorrow and that you all will be comforted in knowing that Herb is now with God in His heavenly home. Rest in peace Herb! - Posted by: Richard Appler (friend) on: Oct 03, 2021
My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. I have very fond memories as a teenager spending time lots of time at the family home on Amundsen Bay. Herb always greeted us girls with a smile and probably a hug. He was a very kind and gentle man who will be sadly missed by many. - Posted by: Lisa MacRae (Teresa's friend) on: Oct 03, 2021
