Bruce Schultz, handyman, Navy veteran Oct. 2, 1948 -- Feb. 19, 2006

A memorial service for Bruce Schultz, a handyman and a Navy veteran, will be at 1 p.m. Saturday in East Aurora Wesleyan Church, 364 Main St., East Aurora. Burial will be in Bath National Cemetery.

The East Aurora resident died Sunday in Veterans Affairs Medical Center after a long illness. He was 57.

Born in North Tonawanda, he lived his entire life in the Buffalo area and served in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

He worked at Fisher-Price in the 1970s and later installed sprinkler fittings and did odd jobs. "He was a jack of all trades," said his close friend, Peggy Sirotski of East Aurora.

Mr. Schultz was an American Legion member and enjoyed country music, football and hockey.

Surviving, in addition to Ms. Sirotski, are two daughters, Kelly Garrow of Niagara Falls and Wreatha Oliver of North Tonawanda; a son, Eric of North Tonawanda; his father, Edmund of Columbia, Tenn.; a brother, Greg of Mesquite, Texas; three sisters, Diane Dulnik, Pamela Lippold and Nancy, all of Columbia; and a grandson.
