KOKOMO, IND. — Hundreds gathered near Kokomo, Wednesday, to remember and honor the lives of two longtime teachers killed while crossing the street in Seattle.
Dennis and Judy Schulte died two weeks ago when a suspected drunk driver ran over them and their daughter-in-law and 10-day-old grandson. The baby and his mother are still hospitalized, but the family told Fox 59 they believe they are in stable condition.
The memorial happened at Western High School where the couple worked. Dennis was a Math teacher and coach and Judy taught English.
“The loss of Dennis and Judy Schulte leaves a void in our lives that can never be filled,” said the family in a statement. “If we can learn anything from this tragedy, it is that the choices we make daily affect the people around us. Every person must have accountability and a responsibility to their fellow citizens.”
The driver blew three times the legal limit and was not supposed to be driving at the time of the accident. He has been charged with vehicular homicide.
