John was a mentor and co-worker at DEC during the late 1970's. John's dry wit, practical sense of the world and simple and effective manner of conveying his thoughts taught great lessons to the group in Corporate Security. John's stellar career with the MSP left a legacy many of the younger members regarded as the standard to uphold. Everyone has a heartfelt and respectful and loving John story to tell. To his children and grandchildren and great grand children - cherish the memories you have of this fine and wonderful man. He was a great gift to all of you and to so many beyond your door. May those memories bring smiles where today tears fall.

I am Saddened to learn of John's passing. I worked for and with John on the MSP. He was an extremely capable individual, leader and mentor. Suffice to say the best I ever had the experience to work for and know. I am honored to have had the chance to have known such a good man and Trooper. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to his family.
May he Rest in Peace.

My deepest sympathy to the Kulik family at the passing of Captain John, a wonderful person and crime-fighter extraordinaire in his years with State Police. He was a good friend and honorable person during his long life. May he Rest in Peace in the hands of the Angels.
