Doug Schulz, 53, of Galveston, Texas, passed away May 6, 2013 at his home. Doug was born in Ottawa, Kansas on December 18, 1959. He is survived by his partner of 17 years, Raymond Hernandez; his father, Jerry Schulz; mother, Bonnie Schulz; sister and brother-in-law, Shirley and Steve Smith, of Gainesville, Texas; and nephews, Michael and Steven Smith.
Doug never met a stranger, and his friendship will remain with us all the rest of our lives. Doug moved to Galveston in 1991 and in 1996 made a lifelong commitment to love and cherish Raymond, which he did till his death. Doug leaves behind many close friends who will miss Doug’s humor, friendship and laughter. We will all remember his voice which could over-power a room full of people; you always knew when Doug was in the room. Sing-a-longs will never be the same without our Doug – he is now on the Grand Tour.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Doug’s name to the Aids Coalition of Coastal Texas or a charity of your choice.
A celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 PM on May 18, 2013 at the Pink Dolphin, 1706 23rd Street in Galveston.
