Arthur Edward Shultz, of Vicksburg passed away on Friday, June 15, 2018 at the age of 73. Art was the son of Kenneth and Lena (Hildenbrandt) Shultz. He graduated from Vicksburg High School and then went on to work for over 30 years as a forklift driver for the General Motors Fisher Body. On January 21, 1967 in Vicksburg he married the love of his life Helen Huntington. Art is described as a jokester, fun loving, and a wonderful husband. He loved to fish, hunt and was a wonderful woodworker. Up until a few years ago the family had a cottage up near Hardy Dam where the family enjoyed going and spending time on the water. At home Art was always seen with his four-legged companions, his two boxers, Willie and Ozzie.
