          Ken  (affectionately known as Kenny) passed away peacefully on March 5, 2010 at the Brighton Gardens Assisted living unit in Santa Rosa, one day shy of his 94th birthday.  He had been recovering from a broken hip and declining health since March of 2009.  He adjusted will to his new residence and the Brighton Gardens staff enjoyed him dearly.  He was born March 6, 1916, Flatrock, Indiana, in an Octagon House that his father built and to this day is still being lived in.  Ken was the youngest of five children that came to California with his entire family in the 1920s.  He attended Todd Grammar School and graduated from Santa Rosa High School in 1932 at the age of 16.  After graduation he continued his education through UC through 1965.  In 1934, at 18 years of age he began his employment with the U.S. Postal Service and after 42 years he retired in 1977 as the Director of Finance.  Ken served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and after his active duty discharge he remained in the Navy Reserves till 1951.  Ken was preceded in death by his lovely wife  Eula E. Schulze  in 1987.  He is survived by his son  Herman Schulze (Joan);  grandson  Ken V. Schulze (Shellie);  granddaughters  Kristina Schulze-Torres (Deric)  and  Melisa Schulze (Rob Perman);  and niece  Judy Nader (Charles).  Ken was a lifetime member of NARFE and very active in the Sonoma County Horse Shoies Pitching Club, Senior Bowling League in Windsor and a member of the Nazarene Church, Santa Rose.  The family wishes to express its gratitude to all the Brighton Gardens staff that made Ken's stay so pleasurable and comfortable and made Ken feel like part of their family on his final journey.  If anyone is so inclined to honor Ken, the family suggests directing any contributions of Sutter VNA & Hospice, 1140 Dutton Ave, Santa Rosa, Ca. 95401.  Ken and his nice smile, witty remarks, and generosity will be missed forever by his family and friends.  At Ken's request there will be a private interment and no services planned.  The family can be reached at 3433 Parker Hill Rd, Santa Rosa, Ca 95404.
