SCHULTCHEN, Christopher

Posted: December 13th, 2022

CHRISTOPHER FRANZ SCHULTCHEN 1982 – 2022 Our shining son, brother, grandson, nephew, and cousin has left us. Christopher Franz SCHULTCHEN was born July 10, 1982, in Penticton, British Columbia. He died on November 10, 2022 in Trail, BC.
He was educated at L’Ecole Agnes Davidson, Gilbert Patterson Junior High, and graduated with his bilingual certificate in English and French from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute in Lethbridge. After high school, his adventures and work took him to Calgary, Cochrane, Toronto, as well as Nelson and Trail, BC.
His knowledge of collectables and music memorabilia was encyclopedic. A talented musician, he loved to listen, perform, and write music. Finding inspiration in the works of The Who and The Beach Boys, he performed with Lethbridge bands such as James Leroy and NCL.
He loved nature and the outdoors. The highlights of his last few years included hiking and swimming in the interior of British Columbia. Christopher had a wonderful sense of humour, and nothing made him happier than making his parents and siblings laugh at his pranks. Some of our fondest memories are the stories he told and the things he did to make us laugh. We were so proud of him.
Mourning his loss are his mother Jane Harris-Zsovan, his father Martin Schultchen, stepmother Gwena Schultchen, sister Jessica Schultchen (Matt Murray), brother Jason Schultchen (Michaela Thompson), stepsister Daylean Mutch (Harley), and stepbrother Dave Olfert (Serena) as well as his grandparents, Ken and Norma Harris of Bluffton Alberta. He also leaves numerous aunts and uncles as well as many cousins.
He was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Mary and Franz SCHULTCHEN, several aunts and uncles, and his stepfather.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm, on Tuesday, December 20, 2022 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610, 4 STREET SOUTH, Lethbridge, Alberta. with Reverend Gillian Breckenridge, officiating.
A private family Interment will follow at Mountain View Cemetery.
