Obituary for Ivan Louis Grulke

Ivan Louis Grulke, 96, passed away on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at Brookdale Country Day Road.

Ivan was born in North Platte, Nebraska on February 7, 1922 to the late Carl Frank Grulke and Minnie Rose Thiede Grulke. For 49 years, Ivan was married to the late Lula Taylor Grulke and today we rejoice in the fact that he has now been reunited with his sweetheart. Ivan was a master at auto body repair and took great pride in his work. He was a member of Rosewood First Baptist Church but after moving into the City of Goldsboro Ivan began attending Victory Free Will Baptist Church. Ivan proudly served his country as a Gunner’s Mate in the United States Navy during World War II.

The family will receive friends on Friday, December 21, 2018 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate Ivan’s life in the chapel with Rev. John Howard officiating. Interment will follow in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery with military honors.

Ivan is survived by nephews, Mike Cogdell, Joe Taylor, Steve Cogdell, Richard Taylor and David Taylor; and niece, Brenda Kinlaw. He is also survived by a special great-niece and caregiver, Stephanie Johnson as well as some dear k-9 friends, Lucy and Big Rig.

We would like to give a very special thank you to the staff at Brookdale Country Day Road for the love and care they provided for Ivan during the past year. Simple words cannot express our gratitude for the special care Mrs. Carol always gave to him. Also a thank you to the caregivers who cared for Ivan over this past year, Rachel, Renee, Tavoris, Clavon, Chelonda, Della and Marika as well as his special neighbors and friends, Pam and Paul Benton and church friend, Richard Gates.

In lieu of flowers, Ivan requested memorials be sent to Samaritan’s Purse, P. O. Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607.
