Brian was not one to mince words, he said it how it was and that’s why so many people loved him. He was an honest, fun loving guy who would help anyone.
Brian loved hanging out with his amazing friends, playing cards, pool, darts and frequenting Thai-1-On in Edgewood. He may have been known to search out new friends during casino nights, someone that looked like they were lonely and needed uplifting, that’s just who he was. Gator rides were a favorite pastime, you could regularly find him cruising Delaware County on his John Deere XUV 835R checking out the fields or helping out anyone who needed a hand.
The Farm is where he called home and took great pride in helping his parents keep the farm running smoothly.
Brian was the kind of guy that enjoyed the simple things in life. He was one of a kind that will never be forgotten. Enjoy the ride Stubbles - fly high and keep the Budweiser cold up there for the rest of us.
Brian is survived by his parents, siblings Terry (Sue) Wulfekuhle of Petersburg, Cheryl (John) Castaneda of Prescott Valley AZ, Sandy (Dan) Mormann of Colesburg, Lynn (Tim) Wendling of Dyersville, and Jayme (Jen) Wulfekuhle of New Vienna and his 14 nieces and nephews who could always count on him to teach them how to have fun - there was no one like Uncle Brian, and 18 great nieces and nephews with one on the way.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents Felix and Rose Oberbroeckling, Gregory and Cecelia Wulfekuhle, a nephew Gus Mormann, cousin, Scott Wulfekuhle and several aunts and uncles.
The family extends a special thank you to Dr. Hermann and the nurses at the Wendt Cancer Center in Dubuque and all the family and friends that continuously stopped in during the past 6 weeks.
Brian was Brian!
