Darold Dean Bulanek, 69, of Deaver, passed away on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at his home in Deaver. Cremation has taken place. Memorial Services will be held at a later date in Texas.

Darold Dean Bulanek, 69 years old, born on March 13th, 1947 in Marshelltown, Iowa peacefully passes away on January 14th at his home in Deaver. Born to Harold and Catherine Bulanek, along with siblings James, Rodger,  Carolyn and Elizabeth. He met and married Beverly Fulgham on September 19th, 1969 although later separating, she brought son Steve Fulgham into to the marriage and then soon following they had Terry (Allison), Kenneth, and daughter Carrie (Jeromie).

He spent the majority of the last 15 years in Wyoming with daughter Carrie, husband Jeromie and grandchildren Brandon, ShyAnn, and AriAnna. He was so excited for the arrival of his second great-grandchild Julian Anthony to grandaughter AriAnna in February. He's spent most of his time devoting it to his grandchildren. He was happiest doing something for or with them any time he could. He attended every school function he could make it to between sports, band/choir concerts, play productions, to award ceremonies he never skipped one if he could help it even when the bleachers or chairs provided he would stay until it was over. He always made sure to tell them how proud he was and how well they did no matter the score at the end. His love for his grandchildren was never-ending.

He could go anywhere and find someone to talk thier ears off no matter where he went he never failed making a new friend even if it was just for that conversation. He had an endless supply of corny jokes to tell you, he was constantly aiming to make you laugh. He had new jokes for every day but a select few he would tell everyone he got the change to. He loved to try and get you to laugh even when that was the last thing you wanted to do. His sense of humor is greatly missed. He loved to share stories of his life long career and the many adventures he embarked on as a semi-truck driver. He had a very giving personality, he would give you his last dollar, the shirt off his back, or anything else you needed if he could or he would find a way to do so if needed. He went out of his way to get certain little special things for people when he saw them and thought of you if you could use it or had mentioned you needed it.

He was fond of relaxing at home taking care of his dog while they napped and watched thier favorite tv shows or played his games. His contagious laugh and loving smile will always be greatly missed. He will always be remembered that and his loving devotion to children and grandchildren.  

He is proceeded in death by both parents, sister Elizabeth, and youngest son Kenneth. He is survived by siblings James, Rodger, and Carolyn. Children Terry and Carrie.  9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren
