Obituary for Paul H. Funk, Jr.
Paul H. Funk, Jr., 69, resident of Cushing, WI, died Friday, November 9, 2012 at his residence.
Paul passed away from us on November 9, 2012. He was born on May 18, 1943 to Paul Sr. and Emily Funk. He grew up on Adams Street and graduated from the St. Croix Falls School in 1961. He married Diana Hacker on August 31, 1974 and together they have one son, Mike. We moved back to the Cushing area in 1978.
Paul worked at Andersen Windows in Bayport, MN for 30 years, he then decided to quit and become a partner with wife, Diana in the Ruffled Spouse Taxidermy business in Milltown for over 10 years until retirement.
He was blessed to have parents that loved to travel and hunt through Wisconsin and the western states. His love of camping and hunting came from them. They spent many summers in a camper at Ward’s Resort on Balsam Lake. Paul also had “many” trips hunting pheasants in Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas with many friends through his life. We spent hundreds of days hunting ducks and geese, pheasants, deer (bow gun) and fishing with wife, Diana and son, Mike and many family and friends. Teaching Mike to hunt, shoot trap, and fish (especially steelhead on the south shore) was a thrill for him.
Paul was an exceptional trap shooter. Alongside Diana, they shot at many clubs through Wisconsin and Minnesota. Some of the happiest memories were shooting at the local gun clubs and especially on the same teams with his best friends Diana and Mike (very competitive to say the least)! His biggest nemesis was Diana and her doubles, oh how he struggled to win!
He is preceded in death by father and mother, Paul Sr. Emily; brother, Allen; father-in-law, Richard Hacker Sr.; brother-in-law, Dennis; sister-in law, Sandy (Butch) Hacker.
He is survived by his wife, Diana of 38 years; son, Mike and granddaughters, Ashley Emma; Mike’s Fiancé, Heidi Stock with daughter, Brooke and son, Tyler. Best fur friends: black Lab, Belle and golden retriever, Sofie; Mike’s black lab, Drake and fuzz ball, Zoey; mother-in-law, Cora Hacker; brothers-in-law, Richard “Butch” Hacker, Jr. and Bill Hacker; many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. From Paul’s first marriage: son, Christopher (Leigh) and daughter, Michele (David) Younger and grandchildren, Cody and Bryce.
Paul fought hard to be with us for this hunting season and just couldn’t win this battle. His “dadditude” will be with us in spirit and in our hearts. Adoray Home Health and Hospice helped keep his last days at home comfortable.
A Gathering will be held at the Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, WI on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 4 to 7PM. A private family burial will be held at a later date.
