It is with great sadness that the family of Nicholas “Nick” James Schultz announce his sudden passing on March 7, 2023, at the age of 39, in Kinde. He was born April 18, 1983, in Harbor Beach to Liz Friedland and the late Anthony (Orv) Friedland. He was a brother to Brook (Dave) Caron and Heather (Kielan) Armstrong; uncle, to seven nieces and one nephew; and most proudly, the father to four beautiful girls; and a soon to be PawPaw to his first grandchild, due in August 2023.
Nick was raised in Port Hope and graduated from Port Hope High School in 2001. He started a family with Tiffany Jewett soon thereafter. His daughters, Alexis Jade, Leeha Marie, Alie Nicole, and Lindsey Jo were his greatest accomplishments. He is also survived by his grandmother, Joyce Friedland; aunts and uncles, Ernie Tice (Lisa), Mark Tice (June), and Ann Drews; cousins, EJ (Stephanie), Courtney (Josh), Melanie (Jesse), Ashlyn, and Abbi; and his best friend, Banjii. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Willet Friedland, Calvin and Mary Lou Tice; uncles, James “Dillinger” Friedland and Ed Drews; and cousin, Buck Tice.
Nick was a member of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians and lived a life full of adventure. He was a motorcycle enthusiast, Mr. Fix-It, an amazing cook, and an even more incredible artist. He always said what was on his mind and left not only a lasting impression on everyone that crossed his path, but usually some ink on them as well. He was loved by many and will not be forgotten – Forever 39 <3
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider memorial contributions in Nick’s name to any addiction or recovery program which helps addicts and/or their family members.
