A message from Tom Ford, Head Coach and Owner of Central Bucks School of Gymnastics:
It is with great sadness that I share news of the death of my close friend and fellow coach, Bob Schultz. He passed away on Friday, October 2nd surrounded by his family.
Bob was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. I offer my heartfelt condolences to his wife, Debbie, and the rest of his family. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.
This is an extraordinary loss for the Central Bucks family and the entire gymnastics community. Bob and I spent nearly forty years coaching side-by-side. He was one of my best friends and my right-hand man in the gym. He poured his heart and soul into Central Bucks Gymnastics. His passion and love of the sport will live on through the countless gymnasts and coaches he influenced and mentored throughout his career.
Bob taught our gymnasts to be tough, disciplined and resilient, but more importantly he taught them to love and support their teammates unconditionally. Please reach out in support of one another as we celebrate Bob’s life and grieve this tremendous loss.
