Community says goodbye to Kokomo couple killed in Seattle

Dennis, Judith Schulte struck by car

RUSSIAVILLE, Ind. - A memorial service was held Wednesday night for the Kokomo couple killed while crossing the street in Seattle.

Friends, family and community members gathered at Western High School in Russiaville to remember Dennis Schulte, 66, and his wife Judith, 68.

Dennis Schulte taught math at Western High School for more than three decades and coached countless young athletes.

The couple recently moved to Seattle to be near their first grandchild. 

"My parents' greatest joy was centered on family, especially being parents, in-laws and grandparents," said the Schultes' daughter, Marilyn, while speaking at the service.

The 10-day-old baby boy and his mother, who is the Schultes’ daughter-in-law, were also hit and severely hurt in the tragic accident. Both are in stable condition.

The Schulte family released a statement expressing thanks to the community for all the support.

In Seattle, the King County prosecutor says Mark Mullan was drunk when he hit the family.  Mullan is now charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.  He was already on probation for previous DUI offenses.
