Obituary of Robert John Kulisek, Jr.
Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Robert John Kulisek, 56, passed away peacefully at Jefferson University on the morning of July 9th, 2015. He was blessed to have his family by his side as he crossed over from this life into the next, being welcomed into his heavenly Home by our Lord Jesus Christ and his loved ones who’ve passed before him, including his father Bob, mother Mary, and brother Stevie. Bobby's hard work ethic was one of his defining characteristics throughout his life. In his early years after graduating from Wildwood High School in 1976, he worked on the oil rigs in New Orleans, then various jobs as he lived in San Diego, CA. He headed back east in the late 70s for an exciting career at the newly opened Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City as a craps dealer. In the late 80s, his love of the sea led him to the adventurous and hard work of a fisherman on a scallop boat. Bobby was employed by the Lobster House for several years, before his career as concrete mason began in the early 90s for Harris Miniature Golf Courses and then as a Union member of Brick Layers & Allied Craftworkers Local 5. He returned to Atlantic City, but this time to help build the Borgata casino, as well as others. Perhaps the highlight of his working career came in 2004 when he took a temporary leave from the union to help his wife Dorothy launch her own magazine, The Sun by-the-Sea in Wildwood,NJ and then in Ocean City, NJ in 2012. Bobby's natural charm combined with his love for his family, made his new position as salesman for The Sun an easy job to excel at. Today, The Sun is in its 12th season and has become an integral part of the Wildwoods community. Bobby had his share of struggles in this life, but had a genuine heart of gold that was full of love for his beloved wife Dorothy, and their son Robert Stephen, b. 1989, of whom he could not have been any prouder of. He is also survived by his sisters, Lisa Tempest and Maria Garrison, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, in-laws, and a lifetime of friends who will all miss him dearly. He loved his seaside town of Wildwood that he grew up in, and spent much of his time lately riding his bicycle around town, waving to friends everywhere he went, always with a big smile on his face. Bobby was a member of Calvary OPC and was very loved and prayed for by his church family. He loved to talk about Jesus any opportunity he could. Bobby's wishes will be honored of having a private memorial service and internment.
