Charles Arkadga "Chuck" Kulaga

Charles Arkadga "Chuck" Kulaga, 91, of Greenacres, FL, was born to eternal life on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, in Florida. Chuck "Charlie" was born November 1, 1926, in Fond du Lac, WI, the youngest child of Prokofe and Mary Prus Kulaga. He graduated from Fond du Lac High School and married Myra Gusse on May 8, 1948, in Fond du Lac, WI. They were married 67 years. Chuck and Myra (Dolly) relocated to Florida in 1987.

Chuck owned and operated several service stations in Fond du Lac, WI, primarily for Standard Oil, with his last service stations on 6th and Main and Highway 41 South. He was a distributor of home fuels in Fond du Lac. He later worked for Brenner Tank  in Fond du Lac.  In Florida, Chuck worked at Spanish River Resort in Delray Beach as Maintenance Supervisor prior to his retirement from work.  He served in the US Army during World War II as a Sgt in Co “A” 106th Infantry.

His military occupational specialty was Message Center Clerk. Chuck enjoyed golf and later was an avid fisherman.

A wise and insightful man, he and Dolly raised four children and loved playing "Rummy" with friends and family. He enjoyed his family visits whenever they came to Florida. His words of advice and wisdom are a legacy he left with his children, and he will long be remembered for all his good words and generosity shown to others in need.

Charles is survived by his children: Richard (Patti) Kulaga, Karen Kraus of Eldorado, WI, Marcia (George,Jr.) Paluga, and Michael Kulaga of Fond du Lac, WI; four grandchildren: Tammy (Larry) Pitts, Robert J. Kraus II, Andrew Paluga, Kevin Paluga; two great-grandchildren: Nicholas and Grace Pitts.

Chuck was predeceased by his wife, Myra; his parents; his brothers Constantine (Mike) Kulaga, Alex Kulaga, and sisters Ludmilla Unmuth from Fond du Lac, and Anastasia Drimaeh from Cholmetsch, Russia.

The family thanks his compassionate home care aide, Marie, for her presence, care, and dedication, becoming a trusted friend to Chuck and the family; to Hospice Trustbridge in West Palm Beach, the nurses and staff at Good Samaritan Hospital for the ongoing care and concern for him as well as his family, to "Jasmine", his furry pet therapy dog and owner Sheila.

Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will held June 9, 2018 at Immanuel Trinity Lutheran Church in Fond du Lac, WI, with visitation at 10 A.M. and a service to follow at 11 A.M with Pastor Tom Meyer officiating.
