The Schultz Legacy - Estate of Don & Cliff Schultz Gives $2 Million to Local Hospitals

May 6, 2022 

The Hospital Foundations in Clinton, Goderich, Seaforth and Wingham have each received a gift of over $500,000 from the Estate of the late Don and Cliff Schultz of Blyth.

Don & Cliff were brothers who lived and farmed in East Wawanosh all their lives. Neither married nor did they have any other siblings. The pair was committed to their farming enterprise and worked together seemingly with one mind to manage their 600 acre farm, mixed livestock, and custom farm work.

In their later years, when they stepped back from farming, the brothers became dedicated collectors of toy tractors, farming memorabilia and full-sized International farming equipment. The collection grew to over 80 big tractors and over 3,000 toy collectables.

Cliff passed in 2013 at the age of 75 following a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. The collection was sold by public auction after Cliff’s passing and the farm was sold after Don’s passing in 2019 at the age of 83.

Both Don and Cliff, as well as their late parents Reg and Irene Schultz, all made use of the services provided by their
local hospitals. They were grateful to have healthcare available close to home. The brothers felt strongly that the community of Blyth and the surrounding area was a wonderful place to live and work. They were able to build a prosperous life for themselves in the community and wanted to share that prosperity back to the community through this generous estate gift to the four local hospital foundations, as well as three other small local charities.  

The Schultz brothers legacy will be that of safeguarding local healthcare for many generations to come. The Hospital Foundations in Clinton, Goderich, Seaforth and Wingham will put their generosity to good use by investing in up to date medical technology and facility improvements. Estate gifts, like that made by the Schultz brothers, serve local patients and put live-saving tools in the hands of the professional, compassionate caregivers who keep our families, friends and neighbours healthy.  

Foundation Members hold a cheque for over $2 million dollars
