With shock I found out about Dominic's passing- 4 years ago-today. It's impossible to describe the intensity of this person's Life Force energy--the feelings of ineffable goodwill he spread. Of all the people to leave this earth early, I never dreamed it could be you. You are missed, Dom, but the legacy of your enormous capacity for love endures. I will bask in it's glow forever.

I was searching for Dominic so I could share an article about a world leader calling for peace. I worked with Dominic at the Center for Common Security/ LEAD, USA, and he was such a joyful and enthusiastic colleague. What heartbreak to hear of his passing. My sympathies to all.

Dear Kulik family,

My condolences to you. I am just finding out that Dominic passed. What a shock and a loss!

I knew Dominic when I was a Visiting Professor at Williams Collegge and I have never forgotten him. What a force of support for me as I tried to interest students in anti-apartheid, social justice and international issues. Dominic's focus on the development of students' leadership was a natural compliment to my work. And what a great joy when we worked together! What a radiant spirit and visionary mind! I have always though of inviting him to Grenada where I work with youth now. I always, always think of him. This is not to be. But his legacy continues. May Dominic's beautifu soul be forever blessed and be at peace! May God bless his parents, wife and children.

Mr., Mrs. Kulik, Alfred, Glen and Regina,
With a heavy heart I just learned of Dominic's passing. Memories of our days at the Palisades Park swim club /swim team and YMCA swim team are filled with Dominic making us all laugh. He as well as all of you are part of wonderful childhood memories. That is what life is all about , leaving great memories and smiles on friends faces. That is a wonderful legacy !
With Sympathy,

Dominic was one of the most joyful and loving human beings I have ever met since graduating from Horace Mann. I knew Dominic from the HM swimming and water polo teams-he was one of our co-captains. Living our lives with the same joyful spirit and kindness he radiated is probably the best way to pay tribute to him. His sons have a wonderful father to emulate and be proud of. May the Kulik family be comforted during the tough years ahead.

I Google'd Dominic's name because some Horace Mann friends and I were discussing the young man who taught me to swim in my backyard swimming pool in Fort Lee 35 years ago. I followed Dominic by 11 years at Horace Mann, and he was a legend. What a tragic loss. My condolences to his family and friends.

Dominic, Your influence is still shining.
I extend my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the Kulik family on the loss of Dominic. Dominic was a friend and mentor. I interned at his LEAD USA organization in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Dominic was the Bono of our alma mater, Williams College. He was involved in leadership, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and global issues long before it was fashionable to be identified as such. I met his beautiful wife/then fiancee Lorraine and his New Jersey family during one of our mission trips during the summer of 1990. I believe the purpose of that trip was to share leadership and organizing philosophy with noted South African activist, educator, journalist and poet Dennis Brutus, who led the campaign to have Apartheid South Africa banned from the Olympics. Brutus used many tactics, strategies and mediums to advocate for the dismantling of the inhumane and unjust Apartheid system. One of thosee strategies was to engage students, activists and leaders abroad- thought leaders in today's parlance in the global struggle for human rights. Dominic was one of those thought leaders that Brutus sought to engage. I can still remember the speaking trips and engagements across country, where we would debate leadership movements and philosophy, while competing to see who could do the most push ups. The only thing that Dominic loved more than making a difference in this world was his family. So I thank the Kulik family for sharing such a light with the rest of us. Dominic, my friend and mentor, may you rest in everlasting and renewing peace.

I was just riding my bike here in Marin County, CA and bumped into a swim team mate of Dom's who was at Williams with us and she told me about his passing. I am very late to write something since I just found this out, but want to share how much I loved getting to know Dominic at Williams. He was so inspiring to me and we had many amazing conversations. A favorite memory is of picnicking on the roof of one of the buildings and talking about everything. He was so fully alive, such a beautiful man. Another memory I have is of being at an event at Chapin Hall and Dom's parents were sitting on either side of him. He had his arms around both of them and it struck me that he, the son, was encompassing his parents with his love and beautiful energy, it impressed me. My sincerest condolences and support for all of Dominic's family. I hold him in my heart and remember his radiant example in life.

Dominic had a wonderful habit of uplifting everybody around him. Any time you ever felt poorly about anything, Dominic was the guy to talk to. He would always leave you feeling like a better, more positive person than you really were. I am sure we will always miss his comforting words (and especially his hugs). I am sure many of us have been thinking about him very often over the last few days, weeks, and months. It's hard to realise how profound an effect someone had on you until you can no longer turn to them during times where they would have been your first port of call.

My condolences to his wonderful family and best of luck for the future. I hope that you can continue to carry Dominic's legacy forward and improve the lives of everyone you encounter, no matter how brief that encounter is. I am sure he is very proud of you already.

He Lives
Prayer for Easter Sunday, 2016
Father in heaven, Your Son died for us and rose again. We pray that Dominic's spirit lives with You now, together with Babe and Bruno, Frank and Frankie, and all those who have gone before us.
Dear God, please be with Nancy and Alan, Loraine, Dante' and Nakaii, and with all of us in mourning. May we, through Your grace, find ways to transform our grief into a greater appreciation for life. May our broken hearts be mended with gratitude for the years we had magnificent Dominic with us on this earth. Grant us peace in our hearts so that we may feel his presence and generous love still with us.
Jesus, help us to do Your will as You taught us. When we feel anger, help us to show compassion. When we feel blame, help us to forgive. When we become frozen with sorrow, help us to carry on and care about others.
Dear God, on this tragic Easter Sunday, help us to remember that Yours is the Kingdom of Heaven and of Life Everlasting. We pray that Dom's precious soul is at peace surfing the stars.

I am so sad tonight after reading of this on David Yaskulka's FB page. I lived with David my senior year in college, and Dom was a ubiquitous presence in our little flat on Cole Ave. A beautiful man with a beautiful heart. I can still hear him saying "Hey, Kath!" and opening up those long swimmer's arms before one of those fantastic hugs. HUGE loss. Sending love to all his loved ones--and I know there were so many

My heart goes out to the Kuliks. I sadly found out about Dominic today and it brought me to my knees. We recently reconnected after so many years watching our kids swim Etc. Dominic and I had been working out together and he filled me with youthful exuberation. He was so excited about his many projects and eagerly wanted me to get involved. We spoke of our children and he was the proudest of fathers. He had it all. He was generous to the core and it showed. We all only wish we could be half the person Dominic was. My heart goes out to those two wonderful boys and his lovely wife Lorraine. He is dearly missed!

I know he was doing what he passionately believed in, namely making the world a better place for all of us. I do know that right now he is with Captain Bill and the Queen Bee, the two people who loved him so much. He is in great hands with them. Know that Mary and I send our thoughts and prayers to you all and will always have a special place in our hearts for Dominic and all the Kulik family. With love, Dick Warner

Dear Alan, Nancy, Alfred, Glenn, Regina, Loraine, Dante, and Nakai,

I am heartbroken for all of you at the loss of Dominic. He was such a warm, wonderful, talented person. When I first met him he was only 8 years old and already just a magnetic, charming personality. He made every gathering happier and more fun. He just had so much love for life and for all the people in his life.

I am thinking of you all and know that you have each other to lean on. The Miwa and Hendrix families send our love.

I met him only a few times but he walks into the room with this large energy and positive attitude and friendliness. He is someone I will never forget .

I am so sorry for you Lorraine but please know that even though I hardly knew him I will never forget him. May God give you strength and take strength from your family and your children. And when you are ready to return to swimming we will all be there for you.

I worked for Dominic at NSU ... he inspired many with his enthusiasm, optimism, and hard work in launching the company. He was a visionary who believed anything was possible. I'll never forget his kindness and compassion when I suffered a serious illness. I wish you the peace and presence of God in these difficult days. Dominic loved you deeply and spoke of you often.

Dear Loraine, Nakai and Dante

Dominic's eagerness of this brave adventure in our beloved country made seem as if he was Colombian in his heartwild, crazy and fun.

Your beloved husband and father is the most complete leader I have ever met, he is the most aligned person with his values and balanced within aparently irreconcilable extremes so passionate in his gentleness, generous and romantic within such an ambitious project. That sounds so contradictory, that it seems unreal as it is his departure

I got so rapt of this story of cleaning water around the world, when actually just before meeting Dominic I didn't want to participate anymore in the corporate world maybe because I had never met before someone that lived so vividly this romantic vision of business He had sold me this idea of using my hard skills with numbers and soft skills to sell the deep spirit of this project and look for resources to finance reconciliation Reconciliation between oil and water, hard and soft, masculine and femenine in business

Thank you dear Dominic, a new angel up there in heaven.

To the Kulik Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Though I was never in school with Dominic I knew him threw Fort Lee and other city friends who attended Horace Mann. This is a true loss. As all said he was always there first, to help others he was a beautiful soul from the inside out. He will be missed. Condolences and prayer to your family to get thru this most horrific event. He will smile that gorgeous smile on all of u from above.

My deepest condolences for your loss. Dominic was one of the first people I met my freshman year at Williams and my dorm mate for that year. Though I had not seen him since graduation, seeing him and meeting his beautiful family was a highlight of our 25th reunion. His genuine and loving spirit were always exemplified by that bright warm smile. The planet and all its inhabitants will miss him deeply.

Extending my deepest sympathies to Dominic's family, though I haven't met you and can only try to imagine the loss you are feeling. I worked briefly with Dominic in his role leading Natural Systems Utilities, and he was always just larger than life, one of those extraordinary people you will never forget. He brought so much passion and intellect to his work. He really was one of a kind. I hope that you will feel some comfort knowing his bright light touched many people and his legacy will live on.

Loraine and all of Dom's family--
News of Dom's passing saddens all of us who knew him. I know he has achieved much over the 37 or so years since he was in my HM math class and enthusiastically learning everything he could. I recall the joyful conversations as I drove Dom and Regina from Fort Lee to HM, and watching him grow from boy to young man during his years there. Although our paths crossed rarely afterwards, Dom continued to share his abundant love and knowledge with all he met. My apologies for being out of the area on the day of the service. May you all find some solace eventually in memories of the good times shared together in this Life.

Top row, second from right, next to me.
Dominic was one of my first and best friends in grammar school. Even at that young age, he had a presence that set him apart from the others. His wit, intellect, willingness to share, and strength of character were already established at an early age. I was not aware of the depth of accomplishments he had achieved but I am not surprised. I know I speak for all of his childhood friends when I say that his friendship was influential in making us better persons. Our lives may have taken different directions long ago but our hearts are now filled with a heavy sense of loss.

I was fortunate enough to become a close friend of Dominic's in just 2nd grade and for a few years after that. Although I lost touch with Dom when he left the Fort Lee school system to attend Horace Mann almost 40 years ago, he was the type of special person you never forgot...even when he was just a young teen. My thoughts and prayers to his grieving family. I am certain that his essence lives on in his son and daughter.

Loraine, Gina & Family...........
It's almost 40 years since we first met ......seeing you at HM functions is/was like....Going Home. The measure of a soul is not simply the overt good it does while on this Earth...rather it is the seeming IMPERCEPTIBLE ways in which all manner of other souls and situations hidden from the naked eye are touched and changed forever in its wake. I suspect you will now only begin to get a glimpse of the manner in which Dom touched all things and souls in his purview. I pray that you, and all of us,once the incredulity of the moment passes, are overflowing with the knowledge of the greatness we all possess to show love and compassion to each other and to our mission while here. Dominic was on fire while he was here. He was completely present in all he pursued and with all those he engaged ....touching all of us in ways for which we cannot even yet find verbiage. He demonstrated intensity of drive, dedication, generosity of spirit and acceptance of all. He had a fullness of character that is evident in every smile captured on film. May you all see clear signs from him and know he is teasing you from the other side. Right now, we are all overwrought. But he shall indeed make you all giggle again. He won't be able to restrain himself. No way.

I remember Dominic from HM, didn't know him well but I did know that he was a great guy. He will be missed by all who knew him. A light has been extinguished way too soon.

Losing someone we love like Dominic is not easy, but knowing that we have been able to be a part of his lif , we can realize that we are blessed to have been able to share in his life before he went to rest in eternal salvation.

J'ai une pensée pour Loraine et les garçons. Dominic transformait l'environnement et la planète à la mesure de ses moyens. Il avait commencé par la base avec sa famille et ses proches. À sa suite, nous continuerons d'améliorer notre environnement..

Our condolences.

Dominic will continue to be an inspiration to so many people. He was an example of how to do good, how to be a good friend, a good parent and a good person all the time. He will be missed terribly but he will also continue to inspire many of us who knew him to be better, to try to be like him.

Dear Kulik Family. Chris Papa just notified Bonnie and I via telephone. We are so sorry for this great loss to your family and this world. Dominic was such a influential force to all of us growing up in through the ranks at CBY and Pal Pk swim teams. A great friend and mentor to all age groups. It is no surprise he carried this ethic of caring into his adult life as a role model for others. We wish you all peace as you grieve for this wonderful man. With love, Peter Nichols and Bonnie (Braun).

I remember meeting Dominic in Philosophy 101 at Williams and the look of shock on his face when he asked me what I thought of the reading (Plato) and I told him I had stopped at page 8 because I "didn't like it". This remained a joke between us for many years. Although out of touch with him since about 20 years ago, I can see that Dominic's commitment and dedication to doing good work (in Philosophy and beyond) only grew greater with time. And I know, from knowing him, that this was exceeded by and grew out of the love he had for his family and friends. My heart goes out to all of them -- this is a great loss.
