Cookie served in the US Army.  He worked on bridges much of his career and was as a self-employed “Hobo”, he would say he was only “retired about for 10 days” his whole life. Cookie owned and operated American Chloride in McKean for over 15 years; worked at Corry Bridge & Supply Company for 20 years and went on to Hobo Construction.

He loved a challenge and believed he could “make something better”, if he saw a problem he always wanted to fix it. That is what he ran his last campaign on with this year for County Council.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing and was a member of The  Federated Church.

In addition to his parents, Cookie was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Miller Schulze; a son Wade Schulze, grandson, Race Schulze and his brother Richard Schulze.
