Robert Elliott Kulp

AGE: 82 • Blaine, MN

Robert Elliott Kulp, age 82, originally of Wilmington DE and currently of Blaine, MN, passed quietly in his sleep on April 8, 2016.

Bob served in the Air Force following the Korean conflict, and was stationed in Japan, where he met his beloved wife Yasuko, whom he married in April of 1962, a marriage that spanned 54 happy years. A graduate of the University of Delaware, Bob was an enthusiastic part of the earliest generation of the computer tech industry, including working for Chrysler at Kennedy Space Center during the later days of the Mercury and the early days of the Apollo projects. Before retirement, he had worked for Unisys for 25 years.

Bob took immense pride in his children's successes and in his grandchildren, and Bob worked with the Boy Scouts of America during his children's early years. He is survived by his loving wife, Yasuko Kulp of Blaine MN; siblings Ann Hullinger of Middletown, DE and John C. Kulp of Bayamon, Puerto Rico; son Dr. Samuel Kulp and his wife, Dr. Marjean Kulp, and their children, Emily and Jessica Kulp, of Columbus, OH; son Dr. Daniel Kulp and his wife Amy Davidson, and their children, Isaac and Hannah Kulp, of Riverhead, NY; and his daughter, Susan Herder and her husband, Greg Herder, and their daughter, Ciara, of Blaine, MN.

There will be no public service for Robert, per his wishes. The family respectfully requests that condolences be expressed through donations in his memory to the Autism Society of MN or your local Veteran's support organizations.
