Obituary for John Patrick Ulrich

John Patrick Ulrich of Millheim, TX passed quietly away October 31, 2022 due to complications from cancer, and in the company of his two surviving sisters and beloved friends. Born to Charles Edward Ulrich of Milltown, WI and Bonnie Adele Sternberg of Brenham, TX on November 16, 1958 he was happiest riding his tractor on the family farm where he was raised, tending to his ever growing herd of goats and taking road trip adventures with his little sister who was more like his twin!
We are happy he is free from the constraints of his illness and reunited with family on the other side, as we take faith in a favorite poem "Do not stand at my grave and weep! I am not there nor do I sleep!"
We are also grateful to Birdsong Cremations, as John's final wish as a practical lifelong farmer was to be cremated "in as cheap and easy way as possible." He did not care for traditional funeral practices and never thought something as natural as ashes to ashes and dust to dust should result in depleted savings and excess debt.
We feel Birdsong honors his philosophy completely.
Pray for us as we go forward without the company and influence of our beloved brother, uncle, cousin and friend, but may the warmth of the sun on our faces remind us he is always near.
