Harry Kulp, 76, accounting firm owner

July 01, 2006

Harry Kulp, an accountant and longtime executive director of a Baltimore burial society, died of heart failure Tuesday at Sinai Hospital. The longtime Randallstown resident was 76.

Mr. Kulp was born in Frankfurt, Germany, and was 9 years old when he came to Baltimore with his family to escape the rise of Nazism in his homeland.

Raised on Whitelock Street, he was a 1949 graduate of Polytechnic Institute and earned an accounting degree from the now-closed Baltimore Institute.

Mr. Kulp, who had not retired, was the owner of an accounting business in Randallstown.

Since 1963, he has been executive director of Chevra Ahavas Chesed Inc., a burial society, founded in 1941 by German Jews who had immigrated to Baltimore. The organization operates cemeteries in Rosedale and Randallstown, where Mr. Kulp was buried Thursday.

An opera fan, he enjoyed listening to the Saturday afternoon broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera Company and attending operatic performances.

He also volunteered at WBJC and enjoyed photography.

Mr. Kulp was a member of Winands Road Synagogue Center in Randallstown.

Services were Thursday.

Surviving are his wife of 52 years, the former Anita Fink; two daughters, Bonnie Levy of Randallstown and Heidi M. Deitchman of Eldersburg; and four grandchildren.
