Kevin Jon Wulf, the youngest child of Kenneth and Loretta (Henry) Wulf, was born on July 21st, 1963 in Superior, Nebraska. He departed this life on October 30th, 2023 at his home in Superior.
Kevin grew up on a farm outside of Guide Rock, NE with his parents, brother Gary, and his sisters Sandy and Theresa. Kevin loved growing up on the farm and taking care of the cows and calves. This is a passion that stayed with him into adulthood. His summers were spent on the road as a part of his dads -Wulf Custom Harvesting- crew. He enjoyed living in the trailers with hired hands and harvesting crops from Texas to Montana. Another favorite Memory he had was spending the night with his grandpa J.C. (John C Wulf) on many weekends.
Kevin attended 2R, a one room school house with all ages from K-6 being taught by one teacher. He graduated from Guide Rock High School in 1981. The main thing he liked about high school was playing basketball. After graduation he continued living and working on the family farm. He was Confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church in 1985.
Kevin was united in marriage to Carol (Petersen) Wulf on April 12, 1986 at Bethany Lutheran Church in Ruskin, NE. This marriage was blessed with 2 children. Jon Christopher Wulf was born May 22nd, 1990. His grandma Loretta, whose birthday was also May 22nd thought this was the best birthday present ever. They shared many birthday celebrations together. Katrina Janelle Wulf was born March 25th, 1993.
Their first home was in Superior from 1986-1990. Fall of 1990 they moved to their home outside of Cadams. This was Kevins happy place because he could finally have cows to take care of again. If you asked him how many aunts he had he didn’t know, but he could pull out a photo album of his first cows and would tell everyone about his first calf “Sucky”. He tried to share his passion with everyone. Carol finally came to enjoy pulling calves, Katrina loved bottle feeding the calves, and Jon learned all of it. One year when Jon was on the Superior High School football team, several of the boys kept coming out to drink the milk straight from one of Kevins cows. Eventually they convinced Kevin to bring the cow to a football game, the next home game Kevin had the cow in a trailer with a sign on it saying “Wildcat Fan Club Team Leader”. Many of the boys ran past and touched the trailer for good luck before going on the field. A tradition was born. That cow was at every home game that year. Eventually Kevin’s farm expanded to include a horse, goats, chickens, and many dogs and cats.
Kevin also Started a Lawn Mowing business. His dad mowed right along with him and watched over Jon and Katrina if their mom was working. Eventually Jon was old enough to join the mowing team.
When Kevin wasn’t working, he enjoyed spending time with his couples card club. This group not only enjoyed getting together to play cards but they all developed deep friendships and even went on regular vacations together to Las Vegas.
Another big part of Kevins life was being involved with his children's sports activities. He was at every t-ball, baseball, softball, wrestling meet, football, basketball or track event Jon and Katrina had. He even took a turn coaching Katrina's grade school basketball team. Katrina thought that meant she would play more. Instead, Kevin didn’t want to play favorites and played her less.
In 2008 the family moved to Superior. In 2010 Kevin and Carol got divorced. Kevin spent most of his remaining years in Superior. He had several people checking on him and helping him out including his sister Teresa and friends.
Towards the end Kevin became very involved with the Men's Bible Study group at the Living Faith Fellowship Church in Superior. Just days before he died, he accepted Christ as his Savior and committed himself to the Lord. God watched until Kevin was ready and then quickly and peacefully called him home.
Kevin was blessed to see his son Jon and Elizabeths wedding in 2018 and get to meet his grandson Greyson Jon Wulf. The last pictures on his phone were of Greysons first birthday.
Kevin is preceded in death by his parents Kenneth and Loretta Wulf, Guide Rock Ne and his brother-in-law Jim Richardson. Guide Rock NE.
He is survived by his son Jon Wulf and wife Elizabeth; his daughter, Katrina Wulf; grandson Greyson Jon Wulf, as well as his sisters Theresa and Sandy, brother Gary, and many nieces and nephews.
