SSG Mark Allen Schultz
February 15, 1966 – February 18, 2019
Mark Allen Schultz was born on February 15, 1966 in Norfolk, Virginia. He spent his childhood growing-up in Oberlin, Kansas where he graduated from High School in 1984.
Sadly, Mark passed away on February 18, 2019 in Highlands Ranch, CO after a painful battle with Congestive Heart Failure.
He honorably served his country for 20+ years in the U.S Army and retired as a Staff Sergeant. Mark went on to serve our U.S. Military Veterans for another 7+ years as a VA Benefits Representative in Lakewood, CO. He truly loved being in the outdoors and enjoyed exploring the Rocky Mountains. Mark Schultz was a beloved father and friend to so many and he will be missed. May he find rest in the Peace of Our Lord.
From his daughter:
He was born in Norfolk, VA in February 1966 and took his life February 2019 in his lost fight of PTSD.
He loved photography, dancing, hiking, church, rock climbing, and anything with a thrill be hind it. He loved skiing.
My father served 20+ years in the Army. He started his career at Fort Carson, CO in an infantry division and later served as a recruiter in California. He then got new orders after 7 years to go to Fort Campbell, KY. He served in military intelligence. My father went to Iraq in 2003. He came home a totally different person. He shut himself off from a lot of family. My dad did have congestive heart failure, but did end his pain by taking his life. We laid him to rest in February of this year at Fort Logan National Cemetery. Shared by Amanda, who also wants to run in her father’s memory soon.
