Obituary

Warren W. Schultz, 78, a resident of Edgewater, MD for more than 40 years, died peacefully on Friday, February 7 at his residence. He was born on September 3, 1941 in Emporia, KS to the late Walter and Mary Schultz.

Warren received both his Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Biology, with a minor in Physics, and his Masters of Science (MS) in Microbiology from Kansas State at Emporia, KS. He received his Doctor of Science (ScD) in Pathobiology from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

Warren served in the US Navy for 30 years, retiring at the rank of Captain. As a Naval Officer, he worked in the Chemistry Division as the Program Manager for Navy Biotechnology and Environmental Quality Research and Development (1986-1996). Other leadership roles he held during his career include: Head, Pathobiology Division, Microbiology Department, Naval Medical Research Institute, Bethesda, MD (1972-1978); Associate Chairman, Chemistry Department, United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD (1978-1982); Head, Molecular Biology Group, Office of Naval Research, Arlington, VA (1982-1986); Division Manager, MACTEC, Inc. and MACTEC-SBP LLC Division Manager, White Plains, NY (1996-1999); General Manager, Environmental Remediation Technologies, Inc., Annapolis, MD (1999-2001).

Warren served 18 years as the Associate Superintendent of the NRL Chemistry Division (2001-2019), during which time he twice served as the Acting Superintendent. In recent years he has been the Program Developer and Program Manager of the Submarine Launched, Long Endurance eXperimental Fuel Cell (XFC) unmanned aerial system (UAS). After his retirement in 2019 he continued to serve in these roles as a volunteer emeritus.

Throughout his career, his science and technology development achievements have been recognized with five medals, including the Navy Meritorious Service Medal and Legion of Merit. While at NRL he received the Berman Award, the Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award and the Delores M. Etter Top Scientists and Engineers for the Year 2014 award from the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (RDA) for successfully demonstrating the Navy's first submerged submarine launched UAS.

In his personal life Warren spent 40 years creating a beautiful waterfront home with his wife, Donna. Boating on the Chesapeake and its tributaries was his passion and while he was dedicated to his country and career, it was spending time with family and friends that he cherished the most. He was a loving and supportive husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend to many people. He was blessed with six grandchildren whom he adored.

Warren was preceded in death by his son, Daniel Schultz; nephew, Jeffrey Short; grandnephew, Lucas Short; and brother-in-law, Bill Giblin. Warren is survived by his wife of 40 years, Donna Brandt; his daughter and son-in-law, Kathleen and John Leebel; his daughter Kristin Schultz and Todd Droegemeyer; his daughter-in-law, Susan Schultz; his sister, Mary Ann Short; his grandchildren, Else and Adelle Leebel and Madelyn, Avery, Sadie and Quinn Schultz; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews all of whom he dearly loved.
