ECSF Celebration of Life for Niles Schulz
Sunday, August 12, 2018
Sadly, Niles Schulz died on Tuesday July 10, 2018 in a canoeing accident in the BWCA. He was canoeing and camping with his grandson Richard and his friends John Vandermyde Sr. and John Vandermyde Jr. and Alex Vandermyde. They were introducing their 8 year old grandsons and sons to a place they loved.
After graduating from Zumbrota High School and Augsburg University, Niles left a legacy in Northeast Minneapolis and at Edison High School as an English teacher, coaching football and wrestling. He was an active volunteer with many organizations: Edison Community & Sports Foundation, PFLAG/PFund, Aids Bike Rides, teaching English to U of M visiting scholars, and tutoring young readers at Pratt Community School.
Niles was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, brother, teacher, coach, mentor and friend. He influenced the lives of many people, especially in Northeast Minneapolis. His was a life well lived! In the words of his favorite poet, Robert Frost, Niles still had “miles to go” but through us his legacy lives on.
A Celebration of Life in memory of Niles R. Schulz will be held on Sunday, August 12, 2018 in the Edison High School auditorium followed by a gathering at Solar Arts Building.
1:00 pm to 2:45 pm: Meet and visit with the Schulz Family in the Alumni Room at Edison High School.
