Designing and building with his wife, their lifetime residence on Montgomery Road in Ellicott City, they were one of the first settlers in Howard County, Md. back when the county was considered the "sticks."

He was the owner of George F. Schatz and Sons Painters, which also employed his two older sons, George A. and Wally.
