Allen J Schulte

 

Allen Joseph Schulte was born November 17th 1954 to Raymond and Henrietta (Herrmann) Schulte at the hospital in Flagler, Colorado. The family resided in Arriba Colorado until 1962 when they relocated to their farm southwest of Stratton, Colorado.  He attended the St. Charles Catholic Academy until it closed and he started school at Stratton Elementary. 

After graduating high school he attended Northeastern Junior College and then moved to graduating with his Bachelor's degree in Ag Business at Colorado State University.  

Allen returned to Stratton and began working on his dad’s farm while also managing the Vona Elevator. It was at this time he met a spunky little school teacher named Mary Havice. They were married June 2, 1984. To this union they welcomed their son Matthew James on January 17, 1987.  Two years later Allen had to leave the annual corn harvest to be with Mary as they were blessed with their daughter Marque Anne on October 27,1989. On September 21, 1992 they welcomed their second daughter Morgan Marie who would make their family complete. 

He spent many years building his farming business of Schulte Brothers with his brother Ed. After his son Matt moved back from college they were able to transition it to 4S farms with Ed, Korey, and Matt. 

Allen enjoyed spending time with family.  Many nights were spent playing cards and board games. He enjoyed doing a large puzzle each Christmas and had to put the last piece in by any means necessary.  Often pocketing a piece so he could say he “won.”  He liked to battle it out in a game of ping pong or Foosball.  He would spend winter nights with a group of guys playing Racquetball like he was still in his 20’s. He loved to cut a rug at family weddings, inventing the infamous Schulte Shoulder Shimmy.  

Allen loved his community and education. He served on the Stratton School Board for 8 years.  He was a member of the St. Charles parish and enjoyed helping the community with the annual Bazaar and tree decorating for Christmas. 

Allen was known to the community for his honest, hardworking, kind and great sense of humor.  He loved his family and was everyone’s favorite Uncle Al.  He loved little kids and was always seen playing with them at family events.  He was known for giving everyone a hard time, and everyone got a special nickname whether you wanted it or not. 

Allen is preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Henrietta Schulte, sister Rita Erber, Mary’s parents Otis and Pauline Havice. 

Allen is survived by his wife, and three children, Matt Schulte and Teesa Yacco, Marque (Nick) Moss, and Morgan (Andy) Taylor, siblings Edward (Rebecca) Schulte, Lois (Charles) Tilley-Morrow, Charles (Lois) Schulte, Marcia (Rick) Stauter, Ramona Wagner, Dennis (Cathy) Schulte, Robert (Colleen) Schulte and many loved nieces and nephews. Along with Mary’s sisters Connie (Larry) Todd, Ramona (Leonard) Kashka, Christina (Terry) Calendar, Peggy (Lynn) Kleiber, Paula (Jock) Bowers, and brothers William (Pamela) Havice, George (Jacque) Havice, Mark (Jody) Havice, and Edward (Amy) Havice as well as many nieces and nephews.
