Obituary for Jonathan C. Ogbulu

Jonathan C. Ogbulu, age 63, of Wauzeka, WI, passed away on Saturday, February 29, 2020. He was born October 8, 1956 in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, the son of Benedict and Comfort (Nwagbara) Ogbulu. Jon immigrated to the United States in 1979, where he studied at the University of the Ozarks and the University of Iowa; where he met his future wife and mother of his two children, Jacque (Cornilsen) Ogbulu. They lived in several places around the country until he moved to Guttenberg, IA in 1988. Jon was a hard-working, jack-of-all-trades man who held several management jobs over the years. He was a long-term employee at 3M, and owned the J C Party Store, both in Prairie du Chien, WI. During the little time that he was not working, Jon loved to fish, watch his Iowa Hawkeyes, and play with his grandkids.
Jon is survived by 5 children: Ben (Jennifer) Ogbulu, Victoria (Ian) Burke, Rachel (Alex Ames) Smith, Kattie (Kenneth) Floyd, and Kristy Dressler; 19 grandchildren; his long-term partner and fiancé, Bebee Jones; siblings: Michael, Emmanuel, Samuel, Gloria, and Gladys; many nieces, nephews, and friends.
In addition to his parents, Jon was preceded in death by two brothers: Clarence and a twin brother in infancy.
