I have very fond memories of working for Mr. Cullen back in the Thomas, Busse days at 500 N. Broadway. I was just a very young girl (pre-college) but will never forget the life lessons learned there nor Mr. Cullen’s kind, gentle demeanor. He was quite a gentleman. I have thought of him often over the years and am sad to learn of his death but know the heavens are rejoicing as he joins his beloved mother and takes his place at Jesus’ right hand. Rest in peace old friend!

Mr. Cullen assisted me with counsel and advice on various business matters early in my career when I needed it most. I always came away from our discussions feeling confident of the desired outcome with him steering the discussions. A good listener, temperate and made compelling arguments that I chose to accept since I could think of no better strategies. Not once did I come away personally nor professionally disappointed.........Mr. Cullen R.I.P.......you were, to me sir, a class act.

Jim Cullen was a true gentleman. He was true friend to my father. He set the standard. Well done sir.

He was indeed the 'Consummate Gentleman'. Would greet me at the door, take my coat, offer me a seat, something to drink. I'd never seen it before, never seen class like that in practice. Never forgot his example of a gentleman. Hopefully some of that can lives on thru me.
My highest regards and condolences, Dave Swatek
