Fred August Schultz, son of Herman and Louise (Rosenow) Schultz, was born March 8, 1926 in Forest City Township. He was baptized April 2, 1926 at St Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Litchfield and confirmed there on June 23, 1940. He has been a lifelong, faithful member of St Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church where he served on the Finance Committee, as Financial Secretary and on the church council. His church was very important to him.  He attended country school and Litchfield High School. On April 23, 1947, he was united in marriage to Lois Lorensen. They were blessed with four children, Kathy (deceased as an infant), Douglas, Brent and Lori. 


Fred farmed with his dad and later bought a farm in the Lake Richardson area moving there in November 1950. He continued to farm until he retired and then continued to help his son farm. For several years Fred served as a 4-H Adult Leader for the Forest City Livewires. Fred was always ready for a good card game of 500 and enjoyed old time music, dancing and watching the Twins and the Vikings. He especially enjoyed family gatherings with his children and grandchildren and attending their school activities. He and Lois moved to Emmaus Place in Litchfield the fall of 2016.
