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

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.
