A Minister's Sudden Death
Rev. George Kulp Dies at the Supper Table.
Rev. George Kulp, who lived with his son, Rev. Edmund James Kulp, at the Grace church parsonage at Red Bank, died of heart disease while
seated at the supper table on Friday night.
Seated with him at the table were Mrs. Kulp; his son, who is pastor of Grace church; his daughter Tillie and Mrs. Emily Fow, who is visiting
the family. When the meal was finished Mr. Kulp sank in his chair and by the time his son and Mrs. Fow reached his side he was dead. He
had suffered with heart disease for a number of years. Until the Saturday previous to his death he was able to take short walks, but after
that time he had not left the house.
Mr. Kulp was a native of Philadelphia and was 65 years old. He was engaged in the brick making business during his active years. For many
years he had been a local preacher in the Methodist church. He was a deeply spiritual man and was very zealous in the cause of the church.
Besides the son and daughter who live at the parsonage, he leaves another son. Rev. Joseph C. Kulp of Newport, N. J. A brother and a sister
also survive him.
The funeral was held on Monday night at Grace church parsonage and was in charge of Presiding Elder Roe. Rev. John Handley of Long Branch and
Rev. J. Morgan Reed of Atlantic City assisted in the service. Yesterday morning the body was taken to Philadelphia and buried in Fernwood cemetery.
