HAUBSTADT — Warren Lee Schultheis, 69, passed away Monday, Aug. 10, 2009 at Deaconess Gateway Hospital in Newburgh.

Born April 16, 1940 in Haubstadt, he was the son of Wilfred “Jack” and Marjorie (Nicholson) Schultheis.

He graduated from Haubstadt High School in 1958. He graduated from barber college in Henderson, Ky. and attended Indiana State University in Terre Haute. He served in the U.S. Army from 1960-66. He lived in New Jersey and sold real estate for Burgdorff Realtors until he retired and moved back to Indiana in 2007.

Warren was very active in sports and coaching. He coached summer baseball for 15 years, youth football for five years, seventh and eighth grade basketball for five years and served as a scout master for eight years.


The highlight of his basketball coaching career was when his team won The All-City Championship Tourney. Along with coaching, he was chairman of Ducks Unlimited for 20 years.

Although he donated much time to his children and young adults, he also had a great passion for golfing, fishing and hunting. Attesting to that statement are the numerous golf plaques and trophies (including the “NYC”) which are displayed proudly in his home.

Survivors include his children, Cyndy Corbett (husband Chip) of Paris, France; Scott Schultheis (wife Allie); Jeff Schultheis (wife Jamie); granddaughters, Tara and Lauren all of Gunnison, Colo.; and grandson, Luke of Pittsburgh, Penn. and Stephen Schultheis and friend Peter Hughes of Ridgewood; mother, Marjorie Hayden; fiancé Shelia Meyer, both of Haubstadt; three brothers, Charles Schultheis of Spring Hill, Fla., Ed Schultheis (Jeannie) of Warrenton; Dave Schultheis of West Lafayette; three sisters, Susie Martin (Ronald) of Mt. Vernon, Ind., Judy Streetman (Don) of Darmstadt and Betty Orth (Harold) of Evansville.

He was preceded in death by his father; and brother, Robert Schultheis.
