Nov. 12, 1928 — Jan. 13, 2013

Melvin Lloyd Schultz left this world on Jan. 13, 2013. He was born on Nov. 12, 1928, to “Cotton” and Gladys Schultz in Detroit, Mich. The family moved to California in 1930. Mel grew up in Lake Elsinore, where he and his father built a travel park. He took a boat to school instead of a bus and became a champion water-skier. After high school he enlisted in the Navy Reserves, but after his discharge in 1950 he was drafted by the Army and sent to Korea, where he served as a combat medic.

On his return from the war, Mel enrolled in Glendale Chiropractic College and married Marlyn Reese. Before graduation from chiropractic college, the couple had their first child, Wendy. They moved to Northern California when Mel went into practice and their second child, Kevin, was born.

Mel had an amazing memory and was an indefatigable story teller. He also had a great supply of racy jokes and bawdy songs at his command. He loved animals and they loved him. He loved fishing and hunting and he taught all his children that parents could also be play fellows.

Mel and his second wife, Jan, had a son, Wayne. Mel and Jan were married for 31 years and traveled all over the United States in a variety of RVs. They were camp hosts for a number of Thousand Trail camps in Oregon and California. After Jan’s death, Mel moved to Eskaton Lincoln Manor in 2006. With his generous nature, amazing stories and passion for bingo and poker, he became an integral part of the Eskaton family.

Mel is survived by six children, Joyce Shipman (Russell), Wendy Schultz Payne (Robert), Robert Quartier (Connie), Kevin Schultz (Beverly), Karen Quartier (Gilbert) and Wayne Schultz (Lauren); 13 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grand nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife, Janet; his sister, Gloria Rose Ferris; and by both of his parents.

No services will be held and in lieu of flowers friends are asked to donate to the veterans organization of their choice. Remember Mel with stories of your own and smile when you tell them.
