Obituary

Sheldon A. “Dutch” Schultz, 83, left this world peacefully February 20, 2022, after a brief battle with a fast-spreading lymphoma, confirmed after his passing. He was comforted by the love and support of the angels on the 3rd floor at Advent Ormond Beach, Nurse Arlene, and tech Connie, Halifax Hospice, his daughter, and his wife.

Nicknamed Dutch by a friend after the famous gangster “Dutch Schultz,” our Dutch never lived up to the criminal hype. Instead, he lived a life of service, beginning with military policing in the armed forces, and 40 plus years in law enforcement. After retiring and moving back to the Daytona area, his wife encouraged him to get involved in the community Homeowners Association.

Dutch joined the Daytona Beach Police Department in 1963, earning multiple commendations and promotions during his 27-year career with the department, where he retired as Captain in 1990. He was most proud of two notable accomplishments, graduating from the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA in June 1978, and starting the DBPD K-9 unit in 1981. Throughout his career he was known to be honest, up front, and dedicated; his intentions and integrity were unquestionable. Upon retirement from DBPD, Dutch accepted a position with Crescent City Police Department, FL as Chief of Police, serving that community for 11 years before retiring and hanging the badge up for good.

Dutch is survived by his wife of 32 years Diane, daughter Kelly Schultz Stephan, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and an extensive list of his in-law family whom he loved dearly.

Though he touched many lives during his time here, his world truly was his wife and his dog Mollie, thankfully in that order. Dutch and Diane shared a love that was as devoted, tender, and strong at the end, as it was at the beginning. Dutch and Mollie were the ever-vigilant neighborhood watch team in the community, and now Mollie can be seen taking the Mrs. on patrol. Dutch was past president and served on the Trails South Forty Homeowners Association Board up until his passing.

Dutch held a passion for working out and earned several powerlifting world records. He was an avid dog lover, training and titling multiple dogs in AKC competition events. He enjoyed coaching youth football in the 70’s and continued his love of teaching and coaching with anyone who asked for his help in all aspects of his life. Dutch enjoyed music, which included playing the guitar and keyboard, reading, watching college and pro football, and the bi-weekly breakfast gatherings with the Daytona Beach Retired Police & Firefighters.

Come Celebrate Dutch, Saturday, April 30 from 3-6pm, Sharing Stories and Memories at 3:30pm at the Trails South Forty Clubhouse, 75 South Forty Trail, Ormond Beach, FL 32174.

In lieu of flowers, please pray that the Gators have a winning season, and/or send a donation to Belgian Tervuren Rescue in Dutch’s name. https://www.belgiantervurenrescue.com/

    I always admired and respected Capt. Shultz. He was the guy in the command staff that I looked up to the most. I remember he used to have a plaque on his desk that said “Be reasonable, do it my way”! His way was usually the right way. Great man, great cop. I met his wife Diane for the first time at his memorial gathering today. Great lady. Lots of my LE comrades were there to honor Dutch. I never got to call him Dutch. It’s was always Captain Shultz. He commanded that kind of respect.

    Dutch was a light that shown on all who had the opportunity to know him. He always had a smile and greeted you as if you were just the person he wanted to see or hear from. His warmth spread over you. I know that I will miss his voice for some time to come. I would call Diane and if she wasn’t available, he would spend time talking to me! I will never forget his wonderful laugh!
