Robert A. Krultz, age 70, passed away on Friday, May 12, 2017 in the comfort of his home.
Robert Allen Krultz was born in Willard, WI to Michael Jr. and Rose Marie (Malnar) Krultz on January 7, 1947. He is a veteran of the Vietnam War, where he served two tours. Prior to his time in Vietnam, he enlisted in the United States Navy in 1965 and was sent on a flagship in the Mediterranean, which led him to being baptized in Italy. Bob was honorably discharged in 1969. After Vietnam, Robert became a cop in Stevens Point and loved a good, high-speed chase. Bob developed a love for muscle cars and would enjoy going to car shows. One of his favorite activities was fishing and he spent many summer days on Mead Lake doing exactly that. Robert was a jokester and always had a "true story" to tell. He will be dearly missed.
Robert is survived by his Godchild and niece, Karen (David) Pszeniczny, a sister, Darlene (Donald) Zukowski, a brother, Michael (Diane) G. Krultz and nine nieces and nephews; Kathryn (Ray) Pszeniczny, Donald (Lisa) Zukowski, David (Kathy) Zukowski, Kay (Ed) Vater, Daniel Zukowski, Jason (Amy) Krultz, Jenne (Cassidy) Miles, Kristi (Dan) Emmerick and Kevin Krultz. He also leaves behind twenty-two great nieces and nephews and two great-great nieces.
