Mark Schultz Obituary

Mark Allan Schulz, passed away at the age of 59, on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at the CentraCare Long Prairie Hospital.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Friday, January 19, 2024 at the St, Mary's of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Long Prairie at 11:00 AM, with Father Omar Guanchez presiding. A rosary will be prayed at 9:45 AM that morning at the church, with visitation to immediately follow until the mass starts. Burial will immediately follow at the church cemetery.


Mark Allan was born July 19, 1964 to Walter and Helen Schultz.  Mark was the seventh of eight children.  He lived at home with his family until the age of six years and then he lived in Brainerd, Wadena and most recently at Longwood Group home in Long Prairie.  He may have been handicapped but he was a very intelligent and kind person.   He was not able to verbally communicate but he could speak to you with his eyes.  He had his own way of letting you know what he wanted and was very patient and persistent in getting his message across.  Mark loved to tease and joke around with people at home and at work. He loved to make people smile.  He worked at STEP in Browerville and previously at the DAC in Sebeka.  He had also spent time at the senior site in Browerville and enjoyed his time there.  He really enjoyed watching the Twins and the Vikings and cheering them on and going to their games when he could.  He knew the players names and numbers by heart.  He also enjoyed basketball, car racing and hockey, anything with action.  He liked listening to Elvis, Michael Jackson and Tim McGraw.  They are larger than life people and he admired them. 

God planted in Mark the gift of joy, and that is something that he shared with everyone he met.  His smile could light up a room.  He made the most of each and every day.  Mark’s selfless and caring heart will be deeply missed by his family, friends and roommates.

On November 5, 2023 Mark was called home to heaven at the age of 59 years old.  He leaves behind his mother and step-father, Helen and Elmer Bruder; siblings, Bruce (Deborah) Schultz, Gary (Patricia) Schultz, Michael (Judith) Schultz, James (Donna) Schultz, and Mary Kay (Rodney) Hinnenkamp;  17 nieces and nephews; 18 great-nieces and nephews: many friends, colleagues and his second family at the group home and STEP.  He was met in heaven by his father Walter Schultz; brothers, Dennis and Allan Schultz; and sister-in-law Cynthia Schultz.
