Thomas (Tom) C. Schultz, 69, of Newington, beloved husband of Susan (Markette) Schultz, passed away on Thursday, (February 21, 2019). Born in Hartford, on March 18, 1949, the son of the late Charles and Evelyn (Skinner) Schultz, he had lived in Newington since 1975. He grew up in the Elmwood (West Hartford) and was a 1967 graduate of Conard High School where he excelled at football and wrestling. Tom won the final wrestling match of the season with a pin that kept a 100 match winning streak intact and secured the championship for the team. He was awarded a football scholarship to attend Nichols College and graduated in 1971 with a degree in business administration. Tom and his beautiful wife settled in Newington and actively participated in cheering on their children in youth soccer and high school sports. Tom retired after many years of retail management and spent his time being the best grandfather to his precious grandchildren. A great husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, Tom was well-liked by all who knew him. He had a big heart, a kind, gentle, warm and easygoing presence that left an impact on everyone he met. Tom knew how to appreciate the blessings of life. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, teaching them about life, fishing, cars, coin and stamp collecting, world history, science, and nature. He loved spending summer days with his family hiking, tubing and fishing on the Farmington River. He told the best stories ever to his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Besides his wife, Susan of 48 years, Tom is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Kristen (Schultz) Richards and Mathew Richards of Chelmsford, MA; a son and daughter-in-law Brian and Christina Schultz of East Hartford, CT; four grandchildren whom he adored, Cooper, Samantha, Tommy and Nicky; two brothers, John Schultz of Arvada, CO, Ken Schultz of Wethersfield, CT, and one sister, Mary Ellen (Schultz) Breton of Wethersfield, CT; a brother-in-law Fran Markette of Port Orange, FL.

Susan and family - I was shocked and saddened to read of Tom's passing. Tom was always a kind, gentle and caring person and will be missed by all who knew him. Although our paths have taken different roads and we have not seen one another in a long while, I will always have fond memories of the times we shared. My condolences to all of you.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Thomas. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing... He used to make it next door and sit outside where we always had some words to exchange. This totally caught me by surprise and my heart goes out to Susan and especially Brian, Christina and the boys. It is never easy to lose ones Dad, no matter their circumstances or age... but we make it through - over time - knowing that a chunk of our heart is missing and never will be replaced... My sincere condolences to the entire family and hope that all make it through this difficult time. Time itself heals hearts but one never forgets the good times - as it always should be... Joe Smith

Eve and I were so sad to hear of Tom's passing. He was a great friend and we shared so many wonderful (and sometimes hair-raising) adventures as we were growing up. He was truly one of the few folks whom everyone liked due to his positive attitude and overall uplifting nature. He has a great family to lend support through this time. We're sure his grandkids will miss him and cherish all the good times they had.
