As a lifelong resident of Kenosha, PAUL YUTKA (to be referred to as my father going forward) has strong ties to the community and was very involved in grade school and high school athletics at St. Mary’s and St. Joe’s. He attended UW-Madison for one year where he played football for the Badgers until he was tackled out of bounds and tore his knee. Madison dropped his scholarship and he returned to Kenosha to resume business courses at Gateway Technical College, where he graduated with an Associate Degree before entering the United States Air Force. After basic training he was stationed in Duluth, MN, for a short time and then in Germany for three years.
My father returned to Kenosha, at which point he established his own company, called Yutka Construction. He soon determined that his company would specialize in fence-related contracting work, and the company name was changed to Yutka Fence. Over 50 years later, my father still takes pride in the fences we install for our customers. People joke that I won’t let him retire, but he loves doing estimates.
For most of his career, my father operated the business out of his home. He performed all fence estimates and installed each fence with the help of a small crew he employed. This meant that he installed fences five days per week, did estimates Saturday and week nights, and did paperwork Sunday mornings. My father and mother, Trudy, raised two sons, Chad and me. Chad and I were regularly allowed to “play” at the yard (which was the small vacant city lot they owned to store fence materials). Chad and I would sort different chain link hardware parts that were covered in leaves that looked the same size to us. We did get to do some actual playing though, too.
As we got older and learned more about fence products and installation, we began to install fences with my father. Chad and I continued working at the fence company throughout high school and even returned to Kenosha during summer breaks from college at UW-La Crosse to install fences with our father. After graduating from college, Chad and I became industrial asset appraisers.
