dad 1.jpeg

Donald Emil Schulte, 79, passed away at the Cook County Care Center on May 4, 2016 after an ongoing battle with Parkinson’s disease. Don was born to Walter and Alta Schulte on June 6, 1936 and lived his entire life in Grand Marais. Don loved hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, trapping, swimming, hiking and taking care of his pets. He also enjoyed spending time in the West End with the Jimmy Hall family. His work career included school bus driver, logger, Taystee Bread truck driver, and an ironworker. He operated his father’s Pure Oil gas station for many years. He also co-owned three local businesses including Best Western Superior Inn, Schulte Sanitary Service, and Grand Marais Super America. Don was a lifelong member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. He also enjoyed attending Bible Study at the Care Center. He participated on the Grand Marais Public Utilities Commission, the Historical Society, the Grand Marais Recreational Park Board, and retired from the volunteer Grand Marais Fire Department. Don was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Alta Schulte and his first wife Melva, Uncle Neil and Doreen Hall, and brother-in-law Dick Kainz. He is survived by his wife Phyllis Schulte; children Dena (Peter) Schliep, Craig (Lynn) Schulte and Diana (Aaron) Young; stepchildren Rob and Ronnie Stone and Sharlyne (John) Brayden; six grandchildren and four stepgrandchildren; brother Walter “Butch” (Rhonda) Schulte; sister Darlene Kainz; and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 4 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Grand Marais. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice in remembrance of Don. The family would like to thank Dr. Stover and the staff of the Cook County Care Center for supporting and caring for Don during his illness.

Food needed for event

The BWCA Expo, to be held June 11-12 at the Seagull Landing on the Gunflint Trail, needs food service for the Expo. Food truck, local caterer, or a non-profit group with the ability to provide lunches and drinks onsite.  No alcohol involved, but there would be lots of pop and water sales in addition to lunches.  This is a good money-maker for whoever does it, as all the venders and visitors need to eat and there are no other options. Event has grown significantly since the first year, so it's also good exposure.  Best business day will be Saturday, but there will be sales to be made on Sunday also. If you're interested, email ASAP.
