Donn Robert Schutt “Schutty”,71, went to be with his Lord & Savior on September 29, 2019 at his home surrounded by his Family, after a long hard battle of cancer. He was born August 26, 1948 in Wolf Point, MT to Melvin and Ida Schutt. Donn graduated from Wolf Point High School in 1968. He married his high school sweetheart, Debbie Rhoads, on April 5, 1969 and they settled in Wolf Point. From this marriage came two daughters; Bobi Jo Schutt Shores and DeDe Dawn Schutt Gonzalez. Donn loved farming with his Dad, Melvin, his whole life. Donn and Debbie took over the farm in 1991 after Melvin passed away. Donn loved farming and ranching as much as he loved to rope at the Hi-Line Roping’s and at the Go-Getters arena with all of his Cowboy friends and family. He won several trophy buckles along with other prizes over the years of being a header. He was always willing to help the younger ones learn how to rope and had a lot of young men and women look up to him.
