Dear Friends & Family:
Flagler Tavern truly appreciated the outpouring of love and messages you’ve shared on the passing of our dear Ed Shultz.
Flagler Tavern will be closed today, Monday, February 27, 2023 from 3:30pm to 5pm so his family, friends and coworkers can come together and raise a glass to celebrate a life well lived and toast the man, the friend, the coworker, the amazing human being he was to us all. Ed you will be forever in our hearts!
A Memorial Service for Edward P. Schulz, 59, of Edgewater, who died Wednesday, February 1, 2023 will be at 2:00 PM on Monday, February 27th at CrossRoads Church, 1851 S. Clyde Morris Blvd. Daytona Beach. Immediately following the Memorial Service there will be a celebration of Ed’s life at the Flagler Tavern, 414 Flagler Avenue, New Smyrna Beach. Ed was born September 14, 1963 to Otto and Dorothy Schulz in Wantagh, NY. Ed worked for almost 29 years at Boston Whaler as a Master Assembler. In the mid 1980s Ed began working security for several establishments in New Smyrna Beach, most notably as Head of Security for the Flagler Tavern, where he worked for over 20 years.
As a teenager Ed competed at the Inter-County level as a member of the wrestling team and the glee club. Ed was an accomplished singer, making his way through several competitions to represent his High School in the New York State School Music Association’s All State Choir. Although Ed enjoyed riding his motorcycle, he found his greatest satisfaction at work, making sure that if he was responsible for something, it was done right. Whether it be assembling a part on a boat or providing a safe environment for patrons to enjoy a night out with friends or family, Ed was a conscientious and dedicated employee.
Ed’s family extends their heartfelt thanks to all of his friends and co-workers for all their thoughtfulness and prayers, as well as to the doctors and nursing staff at Halifax Hospital, Daytona Beach for the exceptional care they provided to Ed during his time there. Ed is survived by his brother Bill and sister in-law Rochelle, his sister Deborah and brother in-law Scott, as well as the many friends he cherished at Boston Whaler and the Flagler Tavern. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ed’s memory to Halifax Health Hospice at halifaxhealth.org/hospice.
