Anthony Kulvete

Anthony “Tony” Kulvete, 96, of Winchendon, formerly of Gardner, died peacefully, Monday, July 13, 2020, in Quabbin Valley Healthcare, Athol, after a brief illness.

Born in Gardner on September 14, 1923, he was the son of the late Michael and Julia (Sargant) Kulvete. Tony was a United States World War II Marine Corps Veteran serving from 1941 to 1944, in the Asiatic Pacific Area. While in the Marine Corps, Tony fought in defense of the Guadalcanal and in action at Cape Gloucester, until being honorably discharged. He was a laborer and assembler employed by Simplex Time Recorder of Gardner for several years until his retirement in 1989.

Tony was a parishioner of Annunciation Parish/ Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church of Gardner. He was a member of the Lithuania Outing Club of Gardner. Tony had a green thumb and loved to be out in his garden, or out picking blueberries. He also enjoyed watching Westerns. But the time that Tony truly loved and cherished the most was time spent with his family.

Tony is survived by three sons, Steven A. Kulvete and his wife Sandra of Templeton, Alan J. Kulvete of Westford, and Peter M. Kulvete of Colorado Springs, CO; two daughters, Brenda R. Kulvete of Salem, OR, and Ann P. Boudreau and her husband John of Athol; six grandchildren, Eric, Ryan, Brian, Monica, Michelle, and Mary; nine great-grandchildren, Sam, Tyler, Brianna, Jack, Nora, Trinity, Christian, Evelyn, and Genesys; one great-great-grandchild, Micah; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was predeceased by his wife of 57-years Anita (Biron) Kulvete, who died in 2003, a daughter, Beverley A. Kulvete, who died in 1954; two brothers, Peter Kulvete and John Kulveitis; and a sister, Nellie Wisnouckas.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, July 18, 2020, with a Mass at 11:00 a.m. in Annunciation Parish at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church, 135 Nichols Street, Gardner, MA. Burial with military honors will follow at St. John’s Cemetery, West Street, Gardner, MA.

A Calling Hour will be private.

Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, current restrictions set in place by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will be in effect at Tony’s services.

Ann, Brenda, Alan, Steve and Peter - please accept our condolences for your dads passing. We will be unable to attend the service as Steves dad passed away and we have his service to attend on Tuesday. We are trying to limit our exposure to others due to Covid for the people who will be attending that service next week. We will always remember Tonys sharp wit and dry humor. Hes now reunited with his sister Nellie and his brothers Johnny and my dad.
