Raymond C. Schulz, 93, of Quincy, passed away September 18, 2013 at his home. He was born August 31, 1920, the 10th child born to Johann and Maria (Doering) Schulz, pioneers of the Quincy Valley.

On October 18, 1942, he married Nancy Andersen in Quincy; they moved to Spokane, where their three children were born. The family moved to Quincy after irrigation came to the valley, where Raymond was involved in farming with family. They later returned to Spokane, where they resided until Nancy’s death, in 1976. Raymond returned to Quincy where he resided until his death. He was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church.
