"NICK" KLAUS JOACHIM~SCHULZ~With family at his side, Nick Schulz, of Linden, AB, entered into eternal rest Friday, June 25th, 2010, after two months at the Three Hills Health Centre, where he bravely fought the effects of Mesothelioma  (Cancer of the lining of the lung), from working with asbestos when he was 17). Left to remember & celebrate his  sense of humor, joyful spirit & heartwarming laughter, are his loving wife Elaine, & their precious blended family – Dan, Dorothy, Dale, Dave, Darlene, Corrie, Chuck, Jim & Deb. His 13 grandchildren had a special place in his heart & brought so much joy to his life. Nick will also be remembered & missed by his brother, extended family and many cherished friends. His beloved aunts, cousins & friends in Germany will miss the frequent visits & his love of life. After coming to Canada in 1953, he had a variety of jobs, until he started at Air Canada, where he worked for 26 years, retiring in 1999. He enjoyed helping customers, and always had a good time, whether at Lions Club, K.I.K. Seniors meetings, helping out local farmers, cooking hamburgers at Pioneer Acres, having coffee with friends, or taking special needs children to Disneyland with Dreams Take Flight. A huge Thank You goes out to Dr. Swinton & ALL the staff of the Three Hills Health Centre for their tender loving care they gave Nick....he loved to wisecrack, and appreciated your sense of humor also. Thanks also to those who visited, prayed, sent cards, phoned, brought food, and any other expression of kindness...it really lifted us up during this difficult time. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Linden MB Church, Saturday, July 24th, 2010, at 1:00pm. Arrangements entrusted to Prairie Winds Funeral Home, Trochu, AB (403)442-2200. Condolences may be sent to prairiewindsfuneralhome@gmail.com
