Douglas E. “Ned” Schultz, of Winchendon, MA passed away on Saturday August 4, 2018 at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, in the loving company of his wife Dianne M. Schultz, son Justin D. Schultz and daughter Lindsey M. Jolley.  Doug was born in Greenville, Maine on August 17, 1954, son of Joan Corinna McBrierty Schultz and Douglas E. Knowles. 

Doug spent his childhood living in Maine, Alaska and ultimately Massachusetts.  He spent the majority of his childhood in Tewksbury, MA where he attended and graduated from Tewksbury High School in 1972.  There he met the love of his life, Dianne M Doucette.  They were married for 43 years, “all in a row”, as he would affectionately say.

He went on to attend Wentworth Technical Institute and earned a degree in Architectural Technology, graduating in 1974.  He was self-employed for 37 years, working as a draftsman designing buildings and parking garages all over the country.  Three years ago, he went to work for Dailey Precast, an affiliate of Peckham Industries, Inc where he worked as a drafter/checker.

Doug took the utmost pride in his work and always gave 110% to every job he ever did.  When he wasn’t working, what brought him even more joy was spending time boating and fishing at his lake house in Maine, hunting, golfing and watching his grandchildren play the sports they loved. Ned was an avid Red Sox fan.  He enjoyed watching the games on NESN and traveling with Dianne to many of the baseball parks across the country. 

Doug is survived by his loving wife, Dianne Schultz of Winchendon, MA.  Doug is also survived by his children Lindsey Jolley and her husband Bill of Sutton, MA and Justin Schultz and his wife Sarah of Rindge, NH.  Grampa Ned was the loving grandfather of his 4 grandsons, Hunter Schultz, Owen Jolley, Gavin Schultz and Andrew Jolley.  They were his ultimate joy and the children always lit up when he walked in the room.  He was also survived by his brother Kevin Schultz and his wife Barbara and his sister Brenda Warren and her partner John Monteiro. He has many adoring aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.  Doug was son of the late Joan C. Schultz and brother of the late Alan T. Schultz.  His family and friends will all miss him and his contagious laughter.
