David Schultz, 40, of West Newton, MA, formerly of Blue Island, IL, died suddenly while competing in a triathlon on May 11.

David was born on August 5, 1978 to Kae and David Schultz, Sr. and grew up with siblings Valerie, Jonathan, and Denise. He attended the University of Illinois, graduated with a degree in actuarial science, and later received his full credentials as an FSA, EA. As a 15-year employee of Fidelity Investments and a Vice President, he will be remembered for his work ethic, leadership, and affability.

David leaves behind his loving wife Kelly O’Leary Schultz and children Liam (9), Emily (6) and Maeve (6). He is survived by his siblings, parents, and grandmother, Theresa Schultz of Blue Island, and extended family. David will also be missed by a devoted Goldendoodle named Millie who greatly loved his belly scratches, treats, and daily runs.

David was the kind of dad who came home after work and dropped everything at the door. He loved nothing more than playing with his kids, reading to them, and making them his famous apple pancakes on Sunday mornings.

Moreover, David was an avid athlete. He began swimming at age five and competed through college. He also lifeguarded and ran cross-country in high school in Chicago. As an adult, he joined a crew team in Baltimore and sculled competitively at Riverside Boat Club where he met Kelly. More recently, he ran his first half-marathon, completed an Olympic length triathlon, and was considering training for his first half-Ironman. Ever committed to his children and sports, he could often be seen shuttling Liam to baseball, soccer, swim, ice skating, and basketball practices with Athletes Unlimited. This past summer he even organized a “Schultz Triathlon” for his kids--which they unanimously named the highlight of their summer and begged him to make it an annual event.

A wake will be held from 4-8 PM on Thursday, May 16th, at the Burke & Blackington Funeral Home, West Newton and a Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Bernard’s Church, West Newton at 10 AM Friday, May 17th. The Franklin PTO has set up a Go Fund Me site for donations in lieu of flowers

I am very sorry to hear about the loss for your family. I knew Dave from Baltimore and logged many miles on the Patapsco with him, and had the fun of finding a new place for "burger night" every week after a workout. The smile in the photograph is exactly as I remember from years ago. He was wicked smart and had sharp sense of humor. Thank you sharing Dave with us. - Rob Mulligan

My wife and I had the privilege of meeting Dave at the Riverside boat club in Cambridge in February. Dave had read an article about the destruction of the boats, ergs and rowing equipment during Hurricane Maria. Dave wanted to donate his single scull to the cause. He mentioned he was no longer rowing because he had turned his attention to triathlons. He brought one of the twins, the sweetest little girl who wanted to help load his boat onto our car for the beginning of the long journey to San Juan. I made sure to let his daughter know how generous her father was and how nice it was for him to help others in need. This boat was recently used in international training in Ponce Puerto Rico. Thank You Dave. RIP
