Kulaf, Donald H.

Donald Henry Kulaf, age 78, of Crandon, Wisconsin, passed away on May 4, 2014. Don was born in Crandon on October 4, 1935, to the late George and Geneva (Frederick) Kulaf.

On May 2, 1958, Don married Gerry "Ann" Flannery beginning a 48 year marriage until Ann's passing in 2006. Early in his marriage, Don worked at American Motors in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was later employed as a custodian at the Forest County Court House and remained there until he retired.

Don was quite a talented carpenter, building homes and completing many remodeling jobs. However, his greatest asset, by far, was being a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His children and grandchildren loved spending time with him whether it was picking berries, making maple syrup, fishing, or camping at the county park. Through him, his children and grandchildren learned to appreciate and enjoy the outdoors. In addition to this, Grandpa Don loved watching his grandchildren's sporting and school events. He was an avid D.C. Everest fan for many years, but most recently found great joy in watching his grandchildren as they played sports for the Crandon Cardinals. Indeed, Donald Henry Kulaf was a great family man.

He is survived by his son, Jeff (Beth) Kulaf and his daughter, Barbie (Jeff) Marvin. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Todd (Nicole Brengman) Kulaf , Alex Kulaf, and Trevor, Tanner, and Tabitha Marvin. He is furthered survived by his brother, Leo "Beno" Kulaf and his sister, Lucille "Snookie" Jones.

Don was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Ann, and his son, Todd Allen Kulaf. He was also preceded in death by nine sisters: Gertrude "Gert" Murray, Agnes "Aggie" Sharko, Ella Dutton, Marcella Kolter, Mildred "Lottie" Bennette, Shirley "Shin" Gerald, Elizabeth "Beta" Hilman, Joanne Drake, and Mary Ann Schultz; and two brothers: Andrew Kulaf and George "Butch" Kulaf.

Services will be held on Saturday, May 10th at 11:00 a.m. at the Weber Hill Funeral Home in Crandon with Pastor Seth Hamilton officiating. A visitation will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home. The Weber-Hill Funeral Home will be assisting the family.
