CoRR Founder Bill Schultz Dies

The community is mourning the loss of Bill Schultz who passed away from a stroke on Wednesday.  Bill Schultz’ leadership in the community through his decades of service as Nevada County Supervisor, business owner, friend, employer, and visionary in establishing and supporting recovery programs is deeply appreciated by so many.  Warren Daniels, the current Executive Director of Community Recovery Resources says Schultz was the force that took what began as a court mandated DUI program, to the Campus…that is a national model for substance abuse and mental health treatment.

Daniels says Schultz was his mentor and  employer for 8 years.   Schultz first hired him in 1995 to join  the Community Recovery Resources team. Daniels says CoRR is comitted to continuing Bill’s lifelong work to help individuals and families rebuild lives and reach their full potential, but his shoes will be tough to fill.   Last April the community honored Schultz with an appreciation dinner that was a sellout.  Schultz insisted all proceeds go back to   CoRR.

Bill indeed was a "one of a kind" we will all miss him a lot. I had the privilege of following him as President of Grass Valley Rotary. He continued to be a part of Rotary and this beloved community for all of his life.
Bill had more than his share of trials in life but he never lost his big smile and laugh. He was a true friend to all that knew him. I'm sure his Cowboy Poems will last a long, long time.
