Obituary

Gerald M. Cullen, formerly of the Fishtown section of Philadelphia passed away peacefully on Friday, January 8, 2021. He was 79 years old. Born on March 5, 1941 in Philadelphia, he was the beloved husband of Mary (nee Gibson) Cullen, with whom he shared 58 years of marriage.
In addition to his wife Mary, Gerald was a loving and devoted father to ; Kimberly Cullen-Rubin (David), Gerald M. Cullen, Jr (Maryanne), Shawn P. (Jennifer), and Edward J. (Nancy), and his grandchildren; Rachel (Ryan), Leah, Gerald (Halley), Ian, Jacob, Shawn, Grace, Luke, Anna, Jonathon and Ryann.
Jerry, known as Pop to most, loved spending time with his family. After retirement, he found time for golfing with his sons and long walks with his dog Rocky. He particularly loved exploring walking trails in local parks and listening to music. Pop loved to travel and was particularly moved by trips to Ireland, Greece and playing golf at Pebble Beach with his son Shawn.
He was the heart and soul of his family – a joyful soul who made friends with every stranger he met with an infectious smile. The room was always brighter when he was in it. His zest for life was only matched by the love for his family. He brought immense joy to everyone that loved him.
Pop was a fighter and fought a courageous battle against Alzheimer's disease. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations on his behalf to the Alzheimer's Association. At this time due to the CV19 pandemic services are now private.
