David M. Grulkey, 64, passed away Feb. 15, 2023. A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023, at Cedar Memorial Park Cemetery.

David was a 35-year employee of Five Seasons Auto Rebuilders in Cedar Rapids. He worked as a collision repair master tech, was a certified emergency responder for Linn and Benton counties and was certified in hazmat recovery and cleanup. He worked closely with the Iowa State Patrol and Benton County Sheriff’s Department at thousands of accident and recovery scenes. David was a master designer – he designed, built, and distributed truck equipment and apparatuses nationwide that can be seen on many national shows and accident scenes.

His experience and skill level were unsurpassed as seen by the respect he earned by many law enforcement departments in the Linn County area. David was a good friend to many and was always there when someone needed help. He will be missed by many for his skills, knowledge and, mostly, his friendship.

David is survived by his mom, Delores Grulkey; siblings, Roxanne Grulkey and Steve Grulkey; and nieces, Megan and Emily Grulkey. He was preceded in death by his dad, Ray Grulkey; and brothers, Doug Grulkey and Dan Burkeen.
