Ward "Butch" Domogalski was born May 29, 1937, in Yankton, South Dakota, to Rudolph and Elizabeth (Lancaster) Domogalski. He grew up on the farm near Utica, South Dakota. He attended school in Yankton, but when his father became ill, Butch needed to help on the farm. He married Karen Johnson at St. John's Lutheran Church in Yankton, on July 20, 1962. They lived in Yankton and Butch worked as a carpenter for many years until his health forced him to retire.
Butch enjoyed hunting, collecting guns and watching sports, especially the Yankton Bucks and Gazelles and the Dallas Cowboys. He was a very kind and hardworking man who never had a mean bone in his body.
Survivors include his wife, Karen Domogalski of Yankton; his dog, Muffin; sister, Delores Llewellyn of California; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Rudolph and Elizabeth; dog, Pippi; two brothers: Robert and Donovan; and sister, Dorothy Olson.
