Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Sad news has come to us once more.  Eddie Kulm, father of Norma Kulm Campbell ('60) of VA (and more than likely a graduate of Newport News High School himself) died Sunday, November 18, 2007, two days after his 101st birthday.

From the Daily Press - 11/20/07:

   J. Edward Kulm
  HAMPTON - J. Edward Kulm died Nov. 18, 2007.

Born in Newport News, Va., on Nov. 16, 1906, he was a resident of Newport News and Hampton for his entire life.

He graduated from Newport News Shipyard and Dry Dock Co. and then attended VPI and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering in 1934. He retired as a design supervisor from the Newport News Shipyard and Dry Dock Co., with 44 years of service.

A lifelong member of Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church, Eddie served on the Official Board and worked in several financial positions in the church. He was also an advisor to the United Methodist Youth Fellowship.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Lucile Reynolds. He is survived by his daughter, Norma K. Campbell; his grandson, John Robert Campbell and wife, Kristie; and two great-grandchildren, Shane and Loghan.

The family will receive friends from 1 to 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, at Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church. A funeral service will follow at 2 p.m. in the church with the Rev. Larry Edmonds and the Rev. Elizabeth Lutz officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park. At other times, the family will be at the residence.

Dear Norma - You may not remember me but I was saddened to see the news of your father's death while delighted knowing that he had been given the opportunity for a long (and I know very happy) life. I know my grandparents loved your parents very much and my father and mother did as well. My father, Claude Eley, remembers you and your parents with great fondness to this very day. He's 88!

Deepest sympathy as you mourn his death and celebrate his life.

Sincerely, Jeff Eley

Norma and Family:

I heard the news of Mr. Kulm's passing and I will miss him too. He is and was the best neighbor that I ever had. Sorry that I am unable to attend the service because of illness in the family, but know that Mr. & Mrs. Kulm will always occupy a special place in my memories of Hampton.

Norma: My sincerest sympathy to you in the death of your father. He was certainly blessed with a long life. I am retired and recently took a part time job at Peninsula Funeral Home so I was aware that he had died. I was not asked to participate in his funeral at Chestnut Memorial as I assisted in another funeral at the same time. You were blessed to have him a lot longer than most have their parents. My mother is 92 and still lives alone. Our prayers are with you.
Take care,
Fred and Patty Andrews Mays (N.N.H.S. classes of '60 & '61)

Servant of God, Well Done!

Words by Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)
Music by George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 9 Dec 1893)

(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)

Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".

 Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.

With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!

O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.

Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
