Obituary for Richard "Wayne" D. Hulker

Richard “Wayne” D. Hulker, 54 of Attica, received his trucker wings on February 17, 2021, completing his life’s journey with a final ride to the highway to heaven. He was born in the spring of 1966 in Pineville, Kentucky, son of the late Richard E. Hulker and Betty Jean (William) Schmidt.

Richard is survived by his wife of 14 years, Kimberly Hulker; his children, Anthony Hulker, Brandon (Brittany) Hulker: his step-children, Anthony DeLoy, Jason DeLoy, Ali Wreggelsworth, and Brooke Kalmakoff; his grandchildren Echo, Payton, Liam, Carter, Hunter, Carson, Chloe, Riley, and Kimber; his sister Ann Margaret (Doug) Musgrave; in-laws Brian and Karen Howe. He was preceded in death by his brother Mark; his parents Richard Hulker and Betty Schmidt.

We remember Wayne for his love, kindness, charisma, and character. Everyone knew that they had a friend in Wayne and that he was a loving father and devoted husband. Whether it was a family member, friend, or fellow church member, he was someone you could truly count on.

We remember Wayne for his wit, humor, all-around good-natured attitude, and stubbornness. Looking back, it is hard to deny this when he stubbornly refused to leave his throne “aka’ toilet behind when he moved houses. Just looking at that smile on his face, we all knew he was the king of his castle and his throne was coming with him to prove it.

We remember Wayne with esteemed respect for his courage, strength, and passion for life. His illness and subsequent transplant surgery proved to us all that his will to live was strong. He endured many setbacks but pushed forward despite them. He fought one helluva battle, proving to all that life is worth fighting for.

We remember Wayne for his love of the road and his big rigs. He loved nothing more than to be behind the wheel of his semi-truck, traveling locally or across the nation. He was proud to have had a career as a truck driver, risking the perils of the highways to provide for his family.

We remember Wayne for his love of hunting, working in the garage with his tools, working in the yard, piloting the boat and camping. He was a staunch conservative and was not afraid to say it. He loved his CB radio collection as well as his vinyl records. A bit of a pack rat, he always had something that would fix anything.

We remember Wayne for his generosity. He was the kind of man who would give you the shirt off his back. In true Wayne fashion, he left each of us a gift. The memory of a truly remarkable man.

Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors - Capstick Chapel in Lapeer. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
