OBITUARIES
Ralph Arden Schultz

Ralph Arden Schultz (aka Papa Ralph), passed away after a very courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by his family on Saturday, January 14, 2012.
He was born February 27, 1936 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, to Gustav and Muriel Schultz. They moved to Oregon in 1950 and settled in the Lookingglass area. Ralph joined the Army and served in the Korean War and he was honorably discharged June 7, 1956.
He returned to Roseburg and met and married the love of his life, Neola Mae Miller on June 14, 1957. Their lives were filled with family and friends, many great camping, hunting, and fishing trips, and lots of love and laughter. Ralph was employed by Roseburg Lumber Company and retired with 44 years of service.
Ralph is survived by his wife of 54 years, Neola; his son, Darrell (Lorie); his daughter, Holly (Stuart) Paselk. Papa Ralph's greatest joys were his grandchildren, Scott (Melissa) Paselk, Craig (Jess) Paselk, Mariah Schultz (Jon), and Heather Schultz; his beloved great-grandchildren, Jared, Kaylynn, Hailey, Dylan, Hunter, Hannah and Seeley. He told us once that they were what got him up in the mornings. We shall also not forget his best friend, companion, and entertainment for the last five years, Allie, his wire-haired Jack Russell Terrier. He is also survived by two brothers, Harold (Margie), Dan (Carol) and sister, Lori (Vern) Kruger, two brothers-in-law, Virgil Miller and Dennis Miller, mother-in-law, Mildred Bunnell and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Gustav and Muriel, two brothers, Arnold and Lawrence.
As per Papa Ralph's request, there was no service. We are planning a Celebration of Life onSaturday, March 3 at 1 p.m. at the Sutherlin Community Center in Sutherlin, Oregon. Papa wanted us all to gather for a potluck dinner, he so loved.
You can rest now dear, God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to me." A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Your presence I miss, your memory I treasure, loving you always Ralph, forgetting you never, Love Neola.
