A gathering of family and friends will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 11, at the Cooper Landing Community Cemetery. The Rev. Rodger Hines will officiate.
Mr. Kasulka was born Dec. 3, 1925, in Ganns, S.D. He moved to Cooper Landing in 1971, but continued his close ties with family and friends in Georgia, where he previously lived.
He was a licensed pilot most of his life, an avid fisherman and hunter and a world traveler who made new friends wherever he went. He also was an active member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Soldotna, the Elks Lodge in Kenai and a Shriner in Macon, Ga. He served his country in World War II as a Navy SeaBee.
After retiring from 20 years as production manager at Nashua Manufacturing Company, he opened and operated Bud K's Camper Corral and B and T Hunting Lodge, both in Georgia, with his son, Terry. Mr. Kasulka had a love for commercial real estate and land investing.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Lavonne Beers, and brother, Melvin Kasulka.
He is survived by his sisters and brothers-in-law, Betty Lou and Harold King of Arizona, and Virginia and Don Hamilton of South Dakota; his sons, Terry and Jim Kasulka and daughter-in-law Grace Kasulka, all of Macon, Ga.; grandchildren, Wendy Kasulka, Kristy Bridges, Bret Kasulka, Jamie Kasulka and Justin Kasulka; five great-grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
