In Loving Memory of
November 17, 1969 - August 9, 2005
When we think of John the first thought that comes to mind is his contagious smile. His love of life, and his laughter that made you feel that no matter how bad things may seem, there is always a silver lining to every cloud. John taught us all three very valuable lessons that after his death became inspirational in how we view our lives on a daily basis.
1. He taught us to embrace life and every moment that life has to offer. He would say- you never know when something might happen and the world around you could change in an instant.
2. Put your heart and soul into every assignment that God or life places in your path. Your heart and soul will shine through and that will enhance your spirt.
3. Family (all of your family- extended members included) is the most important virtue or gift that you will ever be given, so cherish all of your family, every hour, every minute, every moment, and every second. Amanda Mae is John's daughter and we want her to know now and always that he cherished her this way, every day of his life.
John according to his family was always a fireman. From the time he was a young boy he would chase the fire trucks down the road and back to the station in Hatboro. When he was old enough to joun as a junior member he did just that and signed on for what became his career. John's passions for his career showed in all that he did with the fire companies he worked for including, Johnsville Naval Air Station, Willow Grove Naval Air Station, Horsham Fire Comapny, and Centre Square Fire Company. John put his heart and soul into every project he took on, especially the construction of Squad 33 and so this apparatus is dedicated in his memory. When John would tell you a story he would transport you into that story as if you were reliving it moment by moment with him as the tale unfolded. John had many gifts, but he would always make everyone feel welcome and as if you have been friends with him your entire life just by saying hello!
We want to thank James Jr, and Tina, John's brother and sister for sharing with us all their brother and the love he shared not just with them, but all who he came in contanct with. We want to thank Amanda for sharing her father with us and his love for teaching other children how to be safe and strong. We want to thank Jill for sharing John with us, and his wisdon about out to be a true friend. Most of all we want to thank James Kulick and Tavi (Peal) Kulick for giving us the opportunity to share their beautiful gift to the world- John Kulick and all that his spirt embodied- Love for life and all of mankind.
John will always be with us, in spirit all of the days of our lives, watching over us as our guardian angel.
Rest In Peace Brother Kulick, terribly missed but never forgotten!
