Obituary of Kenneth P. Cullin

Kenneth P. Cullin, went to be with the Lord peacefully on January 21, 2016, at his home in Sicklerville surrounded by his loving family at the age of 69. Beloved husband of 47years to Agatha (nee Galasso) of Sicklerville. Devoted father of Ted P. Cullin, II of Vernon, NJ, Anita Guadagno of Bayville, Paul Cullin of Marlton and Beth (Timothy) Lomerson of Franklinville. Loving and proud grandfather of Trinity, Gianna, Angelo, Ava, Bianca, Kaya, Serene, Hannah and another granddaughter on the way. Dear sister of Bernice Brady of Connersville, IN. Ken met the love of his life, Agatha, in Detroit Michigan, in 1965. After getting married in 1968, Ken had an opportunity to go to Japan and open the first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the country. Upon returning home, Ken and Agatha relocated to many states to continue his advancement with his career in the food service industry. These moves led them to Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Connecticut and eventually settling in New Jersey in 1991. It was here, where he decided to make a career change. Ken took a job as a transportation specialist driving for New Penn Motor Freight until his retirement in 2014. Ken devoted much of his time to worldwide Marriage Encounter, Engaged Encounter, foster care, CCD education, active Teamster member and Knight of Columbus. He was an active member of St. Simon Stock Parish/Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Berlin, NJ and served as an Eucharistic Minister. Some of Ken's passions and hobbies were: watching NASCAR and Indy racing, playing golf and traveling. He was a car enthusiast, loved cooking on the grill, enjoyed being outside working in the yard and garden, and always had a compassionate tender heart for all animals. His greatest joy was spending time with family. Despite a busy work schedule family involvement was top priority. Some of our fondest memories are: building soapbox derby cars for the Cub Scouts with the boys, being a leader for the Indian Maidian YMCA group, practicing in the yard before someone's game, refereeing football games, or devoting time to be a member of the Passion Play in Connecticut. LOL, we will always remember dad's famous words, "I have a five minute project" and the learning lessons that ensued. He lived by example instilling in us, and honest work ethic, "if you're going to do a job, do it right the first time". Ken's joy for family and life only multiplied with the birth of each grandchild. Whether it was playing cards or dice games with his sisters and brother-in-law's or hanging in the pool with his grandchildren, he was always happy to be there. Relatives and friends are invited to visit with the Ken's family on Friday (1/29/16) 9:30 to 11:30 AM at St. Simon Stock Parish/ Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 178 W. White Horse Pike at Franklin Ave, Berlin, where his Memorial Mass will be celebrated 11:30 AM at the church.
