He was born October 7, 1940 in Paris Township near Dickeyville, WI the son of Clarence and Viola (Udelhoven) Schultz. Roger grew up in Livingston, WI where he lived from 1942 – 1950 when the Schultz family moved to Platteville, WI. He received his GED and later joined the United States Navy in 1957 at the age of 17. He served with the 7th Fleet, USS Thetis where he spent a year traveling the Pacific. He was honorably discharged in 1960. Following his return from the Navy, he began working for Prestress Concrete in Verona, WI where he learned his trade of welding. In 1965, Roger started working for Iron Workers of Madison while attending night school for welding. He was a certified welder in 7 different states and traveled all over the country practicing his trade. Roger was united in marriage to Janice McKarive on July 4, 2000 in Peoria, IL.
