David passed away on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 in Lincoln, NE.
David Charles Schulzkump was born on April 14, 1966 to Ronald and Charlene (McCutchen) Schulzkump in West Point, NE. He was confirmed on April 12, 1981 at Grace Lutheran Church in West Point, NE. He attended and graduated from West Point Jr.-Sr. High School in 1984. During high school, he worked at the Circle A Drive-In, Beemer, NE.
David was a fun-loving, laidback child. He enjoyed making things beautiful. He had a creative gift of being able to visualize beauty in everything, seeing things most of us do not see. David enjoyed going with his mother and sister to flea markets all over on Saturdays, where he found many special TREASURES (unique items, pictures, antiques, glassware, dishes, and tapestries) that he had in his home. He enjoyed the beauty of nature and spending time sailing at Branched Oak Lake, near Lincoln.
David was a kind person, very trusting of others, possibly too much. David had a heart for the less fortunate.
After graduation, David moved to Omaha to attend UNO. He worked at the K-Mart Deli. He then moved to Lincoln, where he managed Little King Restaurants at least three locations, worked at Cheerleader’s Sports Bar, and then started working as the Cornhusker Marriot Hotel as a Sous-Chef. He was a loyal, hard-working employee often working long hours. He worked there until the Hotel was shut down because of the COVID pandemic.
