One thought on “Tribute to Richard (Dick) Schultz”

  1. Dick’s children – Steve, Laurie and Julie – hosted a grand celebration of Dick’s life today near the water. Many friends attended as a show of friendship and respect for a man who touched many people in different ways.

    As a Fairliner owner myself, I would like to add that we will all miss Dick at the rendezvous that we continue to have each year with our Fairliner boats. He had a wealth of knowledge about the Fairliner boats and was more than happy to pass it along. Everyone knew that Dick was the go-to guy when it came to knowing just about anything you’d want to know about engines or parts for Fairliners. He and Jeannine will both be missed. We all admired the Honey Bear, Dick’s pride and joy. We are hoping to see the Honey Bear this summer, perhaps at the Wooden Boat Show in Des Moines. Dixie Ellis, a Fairliner owner.
