To the Schulte Family, I send my love and prayers. Another great loss in our family in such a short time. I've been blessed with the most amazing brothers that a sister could have ever asked for.
I loved my brother Frankie and was always so proud of him. The loss of my brother is still so hard to fathom. To not be able to call and hear his voice brings deep pain to my heart and tears to my eyes.
My big brother told me every time we spoke, how proud he was of me... And that he loved me very much. He always said I reminded him of mom.
Laughter! Lots of laughter. This is what I remember most when I think of my brother. Frankie not only had the funniest stories to tell, but he was an amazing storyteller that made you laugh all the more. He would share stories of running surveillance and chasing the bad guys. He would often tease me as a young girl when I'd ask him to tell me FBI secretes saying, "Druie, if I told you, I'd have to kill you."
I do remember one story, in particular, it went something like this; Frank and his fellow agents were running surveillance in NY city in a van. While sitting in the van, a group of thugs tried to break into the van. HUGE mistake. The thugs got a hell of a surprise when Frankie and the other agents opened the doors of that van with pointed guns. As Frankie said, "They crapped their pants, and they definitely, picked the wrong van to try and heist that night."
I know my brother has joined our parents and his brother Kris in heaven and I'm sure.. making them all laugh as he did here on earth. Thank you Frank for being such an amazing brother. To MJ, Frank, Jenny, Danielle, and all his beautiful grandkids; thank you for the amazing gift and grace you showed to all of your father's siblings before and after his passing. His absence is felt by so many, as he touched so many lives while here on earth. I let go with love as I know you have landed ever so gently into our Lord's arms. I love you, Frankie.

My Brother’s Frank & Kristopher,

These past five months have been very difficult to say the least, so I thought it be best to write my feeling about the void in my life after the passing of my two brother Frank and Kris within months apart. The quote and author Corey Whalley is a good place to start.

“Not only had my brother’s disappeared, but a part of my very being had gone with them, stories about us could, from then on, be told from only one perspective. Memories could be told but not shared" — John Corey Whalley

Starting at a very young age we were very close, not only in age, we shared many of our friendships with the next store neighbors. The three oldest brother were born in New York. We spent our early years living on 8 Wigwam Path in Babylon NY. We spent much of are time being rambunctious wrestling, riding bikes, playing stick ball, basketball with the neighbors children. We were all about the same age, occasionally would get in some trouble around the neighborhood.

What a will miss is not being able to reminisce with my two brothers about those days. Playing “Combat” in Cleady Wilson’s back yard, me getting stung by a swarm of yellow jackets, playing Rhino in the our living room. Little league Base Ball and the fun we had at the lumberyard and pond next to the house. Running & biking through the mosquito fog Machine, no doubt chock full of DDT. Summers at the cottage in Mattapoisett fishing from the jetty and waterskiing in Bussard Bay and quahog and the our gatherings at the stone entrance to sneak a smoke. Never forget Ann rubbing poison oak all over her body, believing she was impervious to this little plant. Just to name a few memories from our childhood days.

But the memories of Frank & Kris will still be with me in my heart, the loss I feel will be short lived as my belief in the lord Jesus Christ dying on the cross for us. I will pass on, as we all eventually do, and enter into the kingdom of God.

Frank
You were my big brother and you showed me a lot of things .I learned a lot I didn’t know from you .You forgot to teach me one last thing ..
How to let you go .I miss being your little sister and hearing you call me Lessie Pie and your laugh and you 10 crazy emails every day .
Frank you have left a legacy... there was no one like you .You were a devoted husband , father , big brother and good and loyal friend to many .
If only I could have the chance to see and hear your voice one more time .The day that heaven calls for me I will run to you with open arms and joy in my heart to once again see my big brother .
Until then my brother I will miss you and think of you often .
Love always your sister Lisa

I was devoted to this hard working Senior FBI agent, Frank Schulte. In those NYC years, we were all charging through doors to arrest the worst of the worst. As always, Frank was there to ensure all would make it through and we did. On the home front, Frank & MaryJane kept the kids busy with school & fun activities with their friends.

As fate would allow, Frank & MaryJane moved to CA and settled in Oceanside. There again, Frank, MaryJane and the kids had great times together. Little did they know that I would be moving to San Diego CA. I will never forget spending wonderful times with Frank & MaryJane at their home & keeping in touch with them after they moved to Tennessee.

May God bless this wonderful family.

I am very sorry for your lost , I was very happy that we reconnected this past August just wasn't enough time but had some great laughs about old times boy and we had some . But still one of the funniest things I remember was about your Uncle Steve ,have him tell you the story of him rolling the VW LOL what made it funny was he came home and woke Frank up and your Dad convinced him to wake your Grandmother up and tell her right away her feet never touched the ground smacking him good I still laugh so hard I cry thinking about.

Frank and my brother Jimmy went to Christopher Columbus together and MaryJane and I went to Miami Killian. Jimmy and I were only 18 months apart in age and since Christopher Columbus was an all boys school I set up all his friends on dates with my girlfriends. There was going to be a Christopher Columbus dance and Frank needed a date and I said Frank should take Mary Jane Frank didn't want to take her and I said Frank MaryJane is a nice girl and you need to take her out on one date so he agreed. That one day seal the deal they were always together.

When ever Frank came to our house he would have you laughing or rolling your eyes. He and my brother could tell stories for days. I lost touch with MaryJane and Frank and even when I tried looking I couldn't find them. I think that had to do with Frank and the FBI. Jimmy and I would also talk about them and finding them I checked FB but nothing. Then one day a few months ago I get a message from a mutual friend that said MaryJane wanted to get in touch I was so excited I gave her my phone number and within 5 mins we were talking up A storm. I felt like old times. I then put my brother in touch with Frank and he said they talked for over an hour.

As many of you have said Frank was a character he was a character 50 years ago and I think he was a character till the day he died. My only regret is that my brother and I did not get to see him again. I would have loved to have seen he and MaryJane together after almost 50 years of being thrown together.

MaryJane I know you and the family will miss him everyday. Try and remember the good time and all the times he made you laugh. It will help get you through the rough days. We all will miss him and I think we all feel grateful for being in our life's even if it was for a day, a season or for years.

Love to you all.

Dear Husband,
I keep asking God why now, you beat 4 cancers and the 5th one took you from me. When I wake you are not there but I always feel you beside me. I miss your snoring and me waking you up, now it is pure silence! I am trying to be strong but it is so hard, I will be all right. We have so many memories that it is so hard to share since they go back to the summer of "68" and we were so young! Now it is just me with our children and grandchildren and I know you are looking down making sure I make the right choices. I love and miss you more than ever!

I knew Frank for over 30 years while working with him in the FBI. He was the best, a true patriot and father. I am sure that he is in heaven having a "taste". In the words of Frank, All the best.".

God bless Frank and his family.

Mike and I met Frank when we were in high school and we were lucky to have known him for so many years. He was a wonderful husband, father and friend. We so admired him for his career with the FBI and Mike and Frank were able to share and connect over many stories as they were both in law enforcement. We are so glad we were able to visit with Frank and Mary-Jane a few years ago at their home in Soddy-Daisy.

We will forever treasure our friendship with Frank.

Much love to Mary-Jane, Frankie, Danielle and their children.

I can hardly believe I’m sharing my favorite memories of a dear a friend as Frank. He was a neighbor, a friend, a brother of sorts. We were finishing our lives growing old together, having fun just doing nothing. He love telling stories about his life as an FBI agent. But when he moved to Soddy Daisy he truly thought he found a hidden paradise. We spent many hours out in my garage solving world problems and bragging about dove hunting trips we had gone on. I loved Frank like my own brother. What a guy, you will be missed.
