Frederick W. Kuhlman passed away on the evening of December 14th, 2013 with his loving wife at his side. His death was due to complications caused by pancreatic cancer. Fred Kuhlman was born in Bay Shore, New York on February 23, 1943. He joined the United States Air Force straight out of high school where he went on to maintain Atlas and Minuteman missiles and their systems. His experience in the Air Force gave him the opportunity to work at Grumman Aerospace Corporation. One of the first projects on which he worked was the OAO satellite which provided some of the first glimpses of space without atmospheric interference. He was proud to be able to have worked on that project. During his 29 year career at Grumman Aerospace and Grumman Houston Corporations, Fred Kuhlman worked his way up through the company from Electrical Assembler to Project and Building Manager. He chose early retirement due to government cutbacks in the defense industry. He enjoyed fishing and was an avid woodworker. People said of his woodworking projects, "...if Fred made it, it was made to last." He is survived by his two sisters, Dorothy Bosak and Joan Pavuk, his wife Liz, his son Patrick, his daughter Kim Altman and his granddaughter Samantha Altman.
