Wulff, Waldemar "Walt" James (6 August 1937 - 7 June 2008)


Waldemar "Walt" Wulff, 70, Neillsville, formerly of Mondovi, died Saturday, June 7, 2008, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Waldemar James Wulff was born August 6, 1937, in Mondovi, the son of Kenneth Theodore and Selma Mathilda (Jordet) Wulff. He was united in marriage to Barbara Steinke July 11, 1964, in Durand.

Walter was a self-taught mechanic, mason, carpenter and truck driver. He passed these trades onto his children, instilling in his family a "you can do anything you put your mind to" attitude. He was also co-owner of Wulff Trucking until his retirement in 2000. He loved traveling with the love of his life, Barbara, and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and his special niece.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; children, Deb (Dan) Hill of Mondovi, Sue Lambert of Elgin, TX, Beth (Dean) Gotter of Spencer, Eileen (Ray) Pagenkopf of Neillsville, Margaret (Scott) Gruzebeck of Lynnwood, WA, Marvin of Sun Prairie, Jim (Naomi) of Withee, Ken of Neillsville and Don (Nelda) of Batavia, IL; 24 grandchildren; 13 great-grand-children; a sister, Eileen (James) Walker of Edgerton; sisters-in-law, Mildred Wulff of Edgerton and Barbara Wulff of Oshkosh; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his step-father, Oscar Christopherson; brothers, Sanford and Phillip; and daughter-in-law, Monic.

Family will greet relatives and friends from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Gesche Funeral Home in Neillsville. A Prayer Service, conducted by Chaplain Fran Trochta, will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Gesche Funeral home. Interment will be in the Oak Park Cemetery in Mondovi.
