Mr. Dunkak was a member of the German Lutheran church and was awarded a 50-year pin for service to the Odd Fellows of which he served as Grand Patriarch.
Surviving are five sons, Henry H. Dunkak of Sioux City, Iowa, John C. and Louis A. of Omaha, Fred W. of Bonesteel, S.D., and William H. of Seattle, Wash., and two daughters, Mrs. Helen Hutchison of Burke, S.D. and Mrs. Emma Roloff of Plattsmouth. His wife, Emma, died in 1943.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at Avoca Congregational church with Rev. A. Lentz, pastor of Christ Lutheran church officiating. Music was by the Christ Lutheran quartet, accompanied by Mrs. Maseman. Avoca Oddfellows attended in a body. Pallbearers were Ernest Hild, John Hild, August Petereit, Walt Peterson, John Rippe and Rex Young. Burial was in Avoca cemetery. Caldwell-Linder Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Weeping Water Republican December 11, 1913 page 4, Will Move to Dakota, Our old time friend Louis F. Dunkak, who now lives south of Elmwood, was in town Tuesday and ordered bills for a sale on Dec 18, at his farm six miles south of Elmwood.
Mr. Dunkak has traded for a large ranch in South Dakota and is preparing to move there, and is offering for sale besides his farm tools and other articles, twenty head of fine young Percheron horses, fifty head of high grade short horn cattle and ninety head of well bread Hampshire hogs.
Every one around here and south of town, where Louie lived so long knows that his stock are always of the best and will probably take advantage of this opportunity to get some first class stock at their own price.
The many friends of Mr. Dunkak and family will regret to see them leave the State, but will wish them well in their new location, and hope that they may be successful in their future plans.
