Obituary for Walter "John" Golas, Jr.

Golas, Jr. Walter “John”
Brooklyn, Michigan

His Legacy… Walter “John” Golas, Jr. 78, passed away October 2, 2019. He was born on June 2, 1941, in Tecumseh, Michigan to Walter and Lois (McCaughen) Golas. John married the love of his life, Erlagene, on April 21, 1966, in Michigan Center, Michigan.
He will be remembered as a huge Michigan State Fan that loved 1950’s and 1960’s music. John also enjoyed NASCAR and attended many classic car shows. He was the owner/operator of Boulevard Garage, where he was well known for getting that hard to find part for older cars, which in turn gave him many loyal customers. John and Erla loved to travel to Florida during the winter months, where he enjoyed being outside in the warm sunshine at their Cape Coral condo. He was a member of the Sons of American Legion #315, Eagles Irish Hills, and the Brooklyn Moose Lodge. Above all John loved his family and grandchildren and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

His Family…John will be missed by his wife Erlagene; his children, David (Lori Quibell) King, Lisa Disbrow and Teresa (Randy) Darby; brother Archie (Tammie) Golas; grandchildren Jaime, Jessica and Jenna Disbrow, Joseph Felkey, Kelsey (Carson Mead) Edwards, Benjamin Edwards, Randy Darby and Ryan (Erica) Darby; one great granddaughter McKenna Darby and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, step-mother Edith Lawrence, sister Cindy Holcombe, son-in-law Mark Edwards, and two nephews Jon Bethel, Larry Seckler.
