With deep regret, United Church Funds announces the death of dedicated board member Hal Schultz on Saturday, March 7 in Laguna Hills, CA. A CPA and ordained UCC clergy, Hal brought a unique set of skills to his service on the board and as chair of the Audit Committee. He regularly served as a presenter at UCF events, and had served the Southern California/Nevada Conference of the UCC as Treasurer. Hal was also known for his love of travel, gourmet cooking, and good food and wine — regularly researching the most interesting restaurants in any locale he visited. He is survived by his wife, Melody, who often accompanied him to UCF meetings and events, and by their two adult sons. Hal will be remembered for his quiet wisdom and love for the church.
