Obituary for William H. Schulz

March 3, 1926 - August 8, 2021
Doylestown, Pennsylvania | Age 95


William H. Schulz, 95, of Doylestown, died August 6, 2021. He was born March 3, 1926 to the late Henry and the late Frieda Schulz. William was the beloved husband of the late Rose G. Schulz (nee – Morelli); father of Barbara and her husband Tom, Diane, and her husband Ray, William and his wife Marsha, and Mark and his wife Lori; grandfather of Sonia, Kristin, Jessica, Erin, Rhianon, Sarah, and William; great-grandfather of Elena, Julia, Kelly, Giana, and Makiya; brother of the late Charles and the late Erna; he is also survived by a loving extended family.

William was raised and educated in Jersey, City, New Jersey. Like many young men of the time, he answered the call to serve his country in the United States Navy during World War II, entering the service when he was just 17. William returned home after being honorably discharged, met Rose Morelli, and the two were married April 1, 1948. The two would share 71 years of wedded bliss which included raising a family together while moving extensively during his tenure with General Electric. As a financial executive in their insurance department, William oversaw underwriting projects both domestically and internationally in his more than 20 years with the company.

In his free time, William was an avid basketball and baseball player in his younger years, though a love of golf replaced those earlier sports later in his life. He prided himself on being a handyman and enjoyed woodworking. William was also involved with his local Masonic Lodge in Middletown, NJ before he moved away from the area.
