A visitation is set for 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Kisselburg-Wauconda Funeral Home, 235 N. Main St., Wauconda. No funeral service is planned.
Schultz, 30, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, in November 2007.
The disease led to the amputation of his right foot. He returned to work with a prosthetic, but the cancer came back. His last shift with the police department was in 2013.
