Wakulat, Jr. joined his parents Richard and Elizabeth Wakulat, Sr. leaving his wife of 56 years Patsy, son Paul (Jenny), daughters Carrie (Gary) Leitner, Elizabeth, sister Mary Beth, and six grandchildren, Kelli, Kylie, Emily, Catherine, Madden, and Liliann.

His hobbies were building RC model airplanes, classical music, boating, gardening, and driving family and friends in his 1929 Ford Model A.

Dick loved and was loved.
