Donald Egnarski, 85, Pulaski, died unexpectedly Sunday morning, November 25, 2018, at his home. The son of John and Helen (Wichlacz) Egnarski was born May 10, 1933, in Angelica. He was a US Navy veteran of the Korean War, and had served on the USS Chilton, APA38. On February 20, 1960, he married Darlene Katch at Assumption B.V.M. Church in Pulaski.   The couple lived in the town of Angelica. Don was a member of Assumption B.V.M. Parish in Pulaski where he belonged to the Knights of Columbus, Bishop Bona Council #4439, Pulaski.

Don worked at Robaidek Silo, Van Lannen Roofing, Green Bay Soap, and then at Fort Howard Paper for 28 years until his retirement. He loved gardening and liked to “compete” with his brother-in-law, Ray. Don liked the Packers and Brewers and enjoyed bowling, and deer hunting with the Egnarski clan in Boulder Junction. His grandkids would tell us that he was the kindest and most generous grandpa ever.

Survivors include his wife, Darlene; one daughter, Kim (Lowell) Helms, Seymour; two sons: John Egnarski (Roxie Monroe), Seymour, and Kevin Egnarski, Green Bay; six grandchildren: Ian (Smith) and Nathan (Nichole), Travis, Tara (Tim), Tyler, and Tiana (Adam); three brothers: Eugene (Sis) Egnarski, Watertown, Jim (Gerri) Egnarski, Pulaski, and Jerry (Maryann) Ignarski, Pulaski; nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

Don was preceded in death by one son, Bradley Egnarski; one daughter, Lynda Egnarski; his parents; one brother, Roger Egnarski; Darlene’s parents: Bob and Marion Katch; a sister-in-law, Beverly Katch; and two brothers-in-law: Jerry Katch and Jerry Strehlow.

The Funeral Mass was celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Friday, November 30th,  at Assumption B.V.M. Church in Pulaski, Fr. Patrick Gawrylewski, O.F.M., presiding. Burial took place in the parish cemetery with military honors by the Pulaski Area Veterans.
