     Stan (Stanley) O. Schuldt 81, of Pendleton, Oregon passed away at a local hospital on January 16, 2018.  

     He was born the youngest of 6 children to Walter H Schuldt and Mary (Pape) Schuldt on April 20, 1936 in Decorah, Iowa.  He is survived by his two sons; Greg of Pendleton, Or and Mike of Seattle, Wa; 3 grandchildren Angela, Anita and Brett of Seattle, Wa; and 4 great grandchildren.

            Stan moved with family to Washington in the 50's. He attended school in McMicken Heights and Foster High School in Seattle, where he met his wife to be and started a family. 

     In 1956 Stan started working at The Bethlehem Steel Corporation (commonly called Bethlehem Steel). It was a steel and shipbuilding company that began operations in 1904 and was America's second-largest steel producer and largest shipbuilder.

            While at Bethlehem Stan worked the control panel pushing billets of steel into the melting furnace. He also traveled back east for the company to explore new furnace options.

            After 27 years of working Stan retired from the steel mill in 1983 then moved to Pendleton, Or in 1989.

            Stan enjoyed so many things. He loved family and made countless trips to Florida, Wisconsin and Washington to visit relatives.  With a brother in Seattle, a brother and sister in Florida and a Sister in Wisconsin he was always going somewhere. 

He loved collecting coins, classic cars, wood working, antique store shopping, quilting, camping and going on trips with his sons as well as talking with people and telling stories.

     On several different occasions Stan’s sons Mike and Greg traveled with him to Wisconsin and Florida. They switched between flying and driving. During that time period Mike was in the army. On one occasion Stan and Mike drove accompanied by Mike’s wife and children. En route they broke down in Blue Earth, Minnesota. New stories and fond memories were made and shared for many years after that.

     Since moving to Pendleton Stan loved the entire Pendleton Round Up experience. He loved the rodeo, parade, Main Street. He was very much a country western fan.  His love for country music also influenced his sons love for country music growing up with it.

      His son Mike remembers his first concert in the 70s was Johnny Cash. He was so excited because his dad gave him the keys to his car and put him in charge. His dad also bought Mike’s tickets to the show. These were separate from where his dad and his dad’s girlfriend sat. Mike had just started driving and months later wrecked that car, a few stern words and another car later they were all back to going places, whether it was working on his sons cars, camping at Lake Ketches, Ocean shores or driving the motor home through the snow to Omak. That's just the way he was, Family and his boys.  His sons and family will miss him very much.
