Floyd Schulmeier, with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based supplier Selco (PPAI 113845, S6), passed away on October 8 at Saint Francis Hospital. He was 80.
Schulmeier was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, where he attended McArthur High School and Saint Mary’s College. He began his lifelong career as a jeweler in 1961 and left San Antonio to join Selco in 1965. Schulmeier and his wife, Vi Smith, started their own watch company, S&S Time, in 1992. It merged with Selco in 2010, where Smith continues to work.
An accomplished trumpeter, Schulmeier played in the German American Society band for residents of nursing homes across the area, for his church and in the Tulsa community band.
“Floyd was smart, funny, opinionated, friendly and never met a stranger,” Smith says. “He loved unconditionally, was compassionate and would do anything for you. He loved God and knew God was his source, and had a fierce pride in our kids and grandkids. He made me laugh; 37 years with Floyd was a joy and each day was totally new. He is missed terribly, but at peace.”
Schulmeier is also survived by his son Eric Smith, daughter Connie Duncan and her husband Brian, daughter Janet Allen, son Jeff Smith and his wife Jackie, daughter Samantha Bridgers and her husband Butch, son Allen Schulmeier and his wife Julie, as well as nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, sister Darleen Lange and her husband Marvin, sister Aline Wallace and her husband Gene, and several nieces and nephews.
Services for Schulmeier were held October 12 at Christian Chapel Church in Tulsa. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials in his memory be made to Royal Family Kids’ Camp, Christian Chapel Church, 7807 E. 76th Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74133.
