Raymond Vincent Schultz

June 9th, 1957 - December 26th, 2020

Raymond Vincent Schultz passed away on December 26, 2020 at 9:22am in Boise, Idaho. Raymond (Ray) was born on June 9, 1957 in San Francisco, California. He was raised by Raymond and Alice Schultz in Sparks, Nevada. Raymond graduated from Bishop Manogue High School in 1975. He moved to Washington in 1977 to learn flooring, his lifelong trade. It was there he met his wife, Joyce and the two married on July 4, 1985. Joyce had two daughters from a previous marriage, Steffani and Staci whom Ray welcomed with open arms and helped raised as his own. Together Ray and Joyce had two more children, a son, Cameron born in 1984 and a daughter Kayla born in 1988. In 2001 they decided to move to Meridian, Idaho. Ray was the fixer of all things. He never hired a repair man to do the job as he knew he could figure it out. Always willing to help anyone with a problem inside or outside the family. He had a passion for karate and held a black belt teaching women’s self-defense classes in his spare time. He was a natural leader being the coach of Cameron and Kayla’s little league teams and eventually the president of Bellevue National Little League. He had a strong love of baseball which he passed on to his children, attending many Seattle Mariners games. Ray was raised Catholic, returning back to the church in 2017. The last few years he devoted his life to the church and many organizations such as Legions of Mary, St Vincent De Paul and Choose Life Idaho. He attended mass daily and was always willing to help when needed. It brought him great joy and purpose to be doing those things. Ray was a giving man who supported so many in his family and others through his volunteer work at the church giving all he could. Ray is survived by his wife Joyce Schultz, his children Steffani Rodgers, Staci Benner (Steve), Cameron Schultz (Katie), Kayla Osterhout (Chris), his grandchildren Madelyn, Sabrina (Ashten), Isabella, Lucas, Evelyn, Taylor, Adrienne, Landon, Austin, Emmalise, Ashlyn, his mother Alice Schultz and his brother Joe Nunez and was expecting his first great grandchild. He is preceded in death by his father Raymond Schultz. The family is asking In Lieu of flowers for contributions to be made for the funeral expenses. They can be made by contacting Accent Funeral Home at 208-888-5833. Ray’s funeral mass will be held at Holy Apostles at 6300 N Meridian Rd, Meridian ID 83646 on January 5th at 11:00am. There will be a rosary for Ray at 10:00am at the church.

✝️ Ray was such a nice man! When I saw him at Church he was always warm, welcoming and helpful. The last time I saw him was before a daily Mass and we chatted about the beautiful sunrise that morning. What a wonderful way to start the day! So sorry for your loss! You all are in my thoughts and prayers!

My name is Steven, Ray, or Rayho as we called him was my best friend growing up in Sparks Nevada. We coached T- ball together when he was 16 and I was 17. Not knowing what we were doing our team took 1st place at the end of the season. We also were Alter boys together at Immaculate Conception Church in Sparks. We were best friends with the Brothers of the Holy Rosary also in Sparks. When the Brothers would go on retreat to Las Vegas, they would ask us to stay in the monastery while they went on retreat, that wasn't the best idea, as Ray and I would dress up in the Brothers habits and And head to every Casino Restaurant knowing they would "comp" our meal. We ate well for those 3 weeks. Another benefit of wearing the Brothers habit was getting out of speeding tickets, when the police pulled us over they told us to slow it down and lets us go, but not until we blessed the police men, we did that often.. Ray and I would take our .22 rifles and head out about 15 minutes from where we lived and shoot at anything we saw, including but not intentional his fathers car. The hood to be exact, we were just shooting at things and a ping we heard, not like what we heard before, when we came up the hill and saw the bullet wound to the car we both panicked, knowing we would have to come up with something very believable, Mr. Shultz didn't believe that bikers were chasing us thru the desert and were shooting at us... Ray left to go to Washington to work with his uncle, that same year I joined the army, 29 years worth. I have always loved Ray, as I still tell people, he was my best friend.... My heart hurts today, as I just found out of his passing...
