  1. Sending our thoughts and prayers to the Schulze family from the Turpin family during this difficult time! Mr. Schulze was a colleague, friend, and fellow Hokie with my father Gene Turpin who passed away in 2020. I remember going to a VT football game when I was a young child with my dad and Mr. Schulze. Fond memories of going to his home and jumping on the trampoline in Farmington. Years later he lived in our neighborhood for many years. God bless him! I am sure he and dad are having a scotch together!
