Edward "Duke" C. Schultz Sr. 74, of Brookfield Twp., Ohio passed away on Wednesday February 15, 2012 at his home with his beloved dog Poochie by his side. Duke was born in Sharon, PA on July 17, 1937 the son of the late Edward and Geraldine (Bowman) Schultz. He was a 1955 graduate of Hartford High School and would go on to serve in the United States Army at Fort Knox Kentucky before his honorable discharge in 1957. A lifelong car lover, Duke returned home following his discharge and went on to found the former Brookfield Automotive which he would operate for many years. Duke currently was barely semi-retired from his other business Duke's Automotive, but he still loved to tinker his garage. He was an avid N.A.S.C.A.R. fan and in earlier years he loved to work on and build racecars and had raced at several area racetracks including Sharon Speedway and at Mercer Raceway. Duke leaves behind his beloved wife of more than thirty-two years the former Kay Thomas whom he married on August 26, 1979; his four children Margaret Blair and her husband Ray of Hubbard, OH, Edward C. "Charlie" Schultz Jr. of Ponce Inlet, FL, David Frederick and his wife Kimberly of South Carolina, and Starr Barber of Youngstown, OH; five grandchildren and four great-granddaughters also survive. He was preceded in death by his parents, his sons Gregory Schultz and Darryl Frederick, and by his brother William Schultz. The family will receive friends on Sunday February 19, 2012 from 5:00-7:00PM at the Madasz Funeral Chapel 6923 Warren-Sharon Road in Brookfield, OH 44403.
