John was born on June 18, 1946 in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin to Frank and Harriet (Wilson) Kaul. He graduated from Juneau High School in 1965. On June 19, 1965, he was united in marriage with Judy Krause at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Juneau. John lived on the family farm in Juneau his entire life. After he and Judy married, they continued to farm the family farm. They enjoyed motorcycle riding on day trips and weekend tours with friends. He was a 40-year member of the Eagle Riders Motorcycle Club. After retiring from farming, John worked for Rennhack Construction, plowed snow for the Town of Lowell, worked at John Deere Horicon Works, and United Co-Op. John helped his friends and neighbors by hauling cattle for them when he could. He enjoyed deer hunting on the farm and at the Krause cabin in Pittsville. Johns greatest joy were his grand children and great grandchildren. His special delight was having them sit on his lap to share a snack and teasing a smile from them. He would sneak his grand dogs treats under the table too.
John is survived by his wife Judy of Juneau; daughter, Julie (Roy) Rennhack of Oxford; granddaughter, Megan (Jacob) Soldner of Reeseville; four great grandchildren, Auden, Kaven, Declan, and Kano Soldner; his sister, Mary Daniels; his mother-in-law, Carol Krause of Juneau; two sisters-in-law, Shirley (Merlin) Luedke of Juneau and Cindy Roberts of Clyman; a daughter-in-law, Kelly Kaul of Juneau; other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; his son, Jay Kaul; his grandson, Roy Rennhack; his father-in-law, Walter Krause; and a brother-in-law, Randall Roberts.
