It is with profound sadness that we honor and remember Tanner Aaron Schultz, a cherished father, son, brother, and friend. Tanner was a radiant presence in the lives of all who knew him, bringing light and laughter wherever he went.
Tanner’s journey through life was marked by his kind and humorous spirit, which remained a source of joy and inspiration for those around him. A proud graduate of Washington High School, he embarked on a career as a truck driver with Beal Distributing, showcasing his dedication and hard work.
The highlight of Tanner’s life was his beloved daughter, Sophia, born from his union with Nataliya Romanova. His love for Sophia was immeasurable, and their bond was a beautiful testament to his devotion as a father. Tanner’s passion for life extended to his hobbies, which included dirt biking, racing, and supporting his brother at softball games. Yet, it was the moments spent with Sophia that he treasured the most.
Tragically, Tanner’s life was cut short at the young age of 24, leaving a void in the hearts of those who loved him. His untimely passing alongside his friend and fellow Beal driver, Josh Steinfurth, is a stark reminder of the fragility of life. They were victims of a cruel deception, purchasing what they believed to be prescription pills, only to fall prey to the lethal reality of fentanyl.
Tanner’s memory will continue to live on through his daughter, who embodies the love and joy he brought into this world. His laughter, kindness, and unwavering love for his daughter will forever be cherished and remembered.
