Adrian Richard Kaull

Adrian Richard Kaull, age 78, passed away peacefully with his family near him on October 24, 2021 at St. Agnes Hospital.

He was born on March 8,1943, the youngest son of Jerome and Florine Kaul. He was affectionately nicknamed Arky by his siblings. Adrian attended St Mary’s Grade School and Lourdes High School, where he was a proud member of the first graduating class. During his high school years, he lettered in three sports – football, basketball and tennis. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Air Force, for a four-year tour of duty and participated on the Scott Air Force Base tennis team. When he entered the Air Force, an error on his birth certificate forced him to spell his surname with double Ls unlike the other members of his family. His immediate family has used this spelling and even jokingly have a yearly golf outing they call “The battle for the L.” Following his military service, Adrian attended UW-Oshkosh and then started a career in Information Systems, culminating in a 30 plus year career at Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac. On August 22,1970, he married Patricia Lekovich at Sacred Heart Church in Oshkosh. The couple celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2020 at the church with their children and grandchildren.

Adrian is survived by his wife Patricia; three sons Jason (Anne Marie) their children Molly, Peter and Bridget of Lindenhurst, IL; Todd (Lisa) their sons Nathan and Timothy of Oshkosh; Jonathan (Katie) their children Quinn, Genevieve and Olivia of Fitchburg; and his daughter Alissa (Brian) Oskey of Black Creek. He is further survived by his sister Florine (Mitzi) Skalitzky of Columbus; brothers Peter (Judy) of Neenah and Casimir of Columbus; plus, brothers-in-law Ray Zelka of Fort Smith, MT and James (Cris) Lekovich of Florence, SC, along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and loved friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Helen, Hollis and Margaret and brothers Jack and Theodore.

Adrian lived in Fond du Lac since 1975 and was an active member of Holy Family Parish and St. Vincent de Paul Society. He was an avid golfer and tennis player and a fervent supporter of Wisconsin Badgers sports. He loved watching his grandchildren participate in their numerous activities, including two grandsons who followed his footsteps in sports at Oshkosh Lourdes Academy.

Services: A Catholic Funeral liturgy will be celebrated for Adrian on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Holy Family Church, 271 4th Street Way, Fond du Lac. Visitation will be at the church from 9:00 until the time of the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to Oshkosh Lourdes Academy or Holy Family Congregation in his name.

The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at St. Agnes Hospital especially the fifth-floor staff and the Mt. Cavalry EMS team for their kindness and attention.
