CW3 (Ret) Rex Schulz, of Big Pine Key, FL passed away on 12 August 2013, after a long illness. He was at home, and God took him very gently. Rex loved people, and loved life. He lived it to the fullest. He served 20 years in the military, 4 with the Navy, and the rest with the Army. He was an MP, and then, in time, he became a CID agent, which was the perfect job for him. After four overseas tours, he retired with the rank of CW3. His second career was as a professor of criminal justice, at Broward College, the Davie campus. While teaching others for 24 years, he continued to pursue his doctorate, which he received in 1979 from Nova. While teaching he also started to travel in the summer, started mountain biking, tour biking, sailing, and took bass lessons. He moved to the Florida Keys in l994, and commuted to Broward for a year-and-a-half until he retired in 1996. He had a deep interest in Christianity, and bible study, and converted to Catholicism in 1992 or 3. He then became very involved with St. Peter Catholic church, when fully retired. He played bass at the Saturday night mass for years, taught religious education, and became a proud fourth-degree Knight with the Knights of Columbus. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, two sons, and a grandson. He is survived by his wife, Carol, four children, Rex, Jr., Rey, Sandy and Regina, five stepchildren, Robert, Thomas, Michael, Cathleen and Cynthia. Eleven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. He was dearly loved by all of us, and many close friends, as well. He'll be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest in peace. Donations may be made in his name to the American Lung Association, or the Knights of Columbus scholarship fund.
