Stan Kulesa

Stan Kulesa of Denver, Colo., 73, died unexpectedly of a strep infection Dec. 30, 2011.

Stan was predeceased by his parents, Stanley (Skinny) Kulesa and Sadie Demkin of Riverhead, N.Y., and is survived by his wife of 43 years, Terry; his sons Keith, of Highlands Ranch, Colo., and Geoff, of Golden, Colo.; four grandsons, Kyle, Ryan, Bryce and Quinn; his sister, Patricia Howell of Laurel, Md.; and his brother, James, of Riverhead.

Stan was an architect, proud of working for world-class firms I.M. Pei, Cesar Pelli, Hardy Holtzman Pfeiffer Associates, Curt Fentress and others. He loved living in his condo in Denver with his family nearby. His hobbies were architecture, travel, photography, dining on filet mignon and reading the New York Times from cover to cover every day. He would not live in a city that didn’t deliver it.

Stan’s sweet smile, compassion and sense of humor will be sorely missed.

A memorial to celebrate Stan’s life will be held Saturday, Feb. 18, at 3 p.m. at First Unitarian Society of Denver, 14th and Lafayette St., Denver, Colo., to be followed by a reception. Donations in his name may be sent to FUSD at the address above.

This is paid notice.
