David John Dulak, 59, of Town of Easton, passed away peacefully at home after spending the weekend with his beloved grandchildren on February 21, 2021.
Dave was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 31, 1961, to the late Joseph and Theda (Brabant) Dulak. He was raised in Menominee, Michigan, and lived in Wausau, Wisconsin for the past 30 years. He graduated from Marian University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Dave was known for his boisterous personality, drive, and work ethic.
Dave held his friends and family above all else. He thought of his sons David, Brenton, and Micah as his greatest accomplishments. He spoke with at least one of his sons daily. In recent years he had turned all of his energy and focus on turning his property into a wooded wonderland for his two grandchildren Myra and Merritt from David and his wife Betsy, and he was overjoyed when he recently learned of a third grandchild from Micah and his wife Hillary.
Dave’s drive didn’t end with providing for his family, it also extended to his hobbies. What started as a joy of the outdoors and bird hunting turned into Dave founding König Kennels, where he raised and bred German Shorthair Pointers. His dogs were highly sought after, winning several National Hunt Test Titles awarded by NAVDHA and featured in magazines. What he thought of as a hobby, most would look at as a full-time job. Dave loved his dogs and the bond he shared with them while hunting.
Dave had an unbelievable work ethic. He spent the majority of his career employed by Borregaard Lignotech USA. For nearly 30 years he consistently led and contributed to global initiatives as a Global Business Process Manager.
Dave’s absence will leave a lasting mark and he will be missed by many, as he was loved by all he met. He is survived by his sons David (Betsy), Brenton, Micah (Hillary); grandchildren Myra and Merritt as well as a third on the way; his siblings Joe, Diane, and Jim; and his former wife Laurie Hamblen. In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his half-brothers, Robert, and Dennis De'Brabant.
The family will be holding a celebration of his life at a later date in the spring or early summer. Family and friends are asked to go to www.brainardfuneral.com to leave online condolences and words of remembrance.
