The public is invited to view the funeral procession, which will begin at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, at Kolssak Funeral Home, 189 S. Milwaukee Ave. in Wheeling.

The procession will travel north on Milwaukee, then west on Dundee Road to Community Drive, circle through St. Joseph the Worker church then continue on Wolf Road. From there the route will travel past Schultz's home and then to All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines for a private burial.
