Daniel “Boomer” J. Schulist, of Muskego, WI, was called home to the Lord on March 8, 2020, at age 55.
Beloved husband of Karen (Brandhagen) Schulist. Loving father of David, Angela, and Callie. Dear son of Dorothy (Shinners) and Richard Schulist. Younger brother of David (Connie) Schulist, Dee (Jim) Karleskint, Denise (Ron) Olszewski, Dean (Cathy) Schulist, Doreen (Mark) Treuden, and Darla (Mike) Erato. Brother-in-law of Judith Brandhagen, Nancy (Jaime) Lehrer, and Steve (Dawn) Brandhagen. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. Preceded in death by father-in-law and mother-in-law Donald and Mary Ann (Wierzba) Brandhagen, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
Dan was born February 18, 1965, in Milwaukee, WI. He later resided in Sun Prairie, WI, and Hastings, MN. He graduated from Milwaukee Hamilton High School, Lakeland College, and earned an MBA from St. Thomas University.
A talented athlete, a versatile handyman, and a successful businessperson, Dan was a great leader and mentor to many. He was extremely hardworking and devoted in everything he did. Whether it was coaching his kids’ sports, completing a home renovation, running a marathon, managing a team, or fiercely fighting his battle against cancer, he never gave less than 110%. Dan enjoyed spending his days on the golf course or hiking. He loved being in the peaceful Northwoods with family and friends, especially being the pontoon captain. He was a lifelong dog lover and Wisconsin sports fan and was known for his trendy fashion sense. He made a mean Bloody Mary and his family and friends will never stop doing “The Boomer” (his signature dance) whenever they hear Earth, Wind & Fire.
Dan fought an extremely aggressive case of advanced prostate cancer for almost four years. He demonstrated enormous strength and courage in the face of great pain and adversity. Dan’s strong faith and resiliency throughout this fight was, and will continue to be, an inspiration to many.
Dan will be remembered as a fun-loving husband, father, and friend who enjoyed making others laugh. He had a positive impact on everyone who met him and will be dearly missed by so many, especially his soulmate and wife of 31 years.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul or the Milwaukee Rescue Mission would be appreciated.
