Santa Clarita Valley History In Pictures

Kyle Richard Kulish
Teacher, Golden Valley High School

Kyle Richard Kulish passed away unexpectedly on December 4, 2015. He was born on June 25, 1960 in Bridgeport, CT to Joan Pjura Kulish and Richard Kulish.

Kyle graduated with dual degrees in both Journalism and German from the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he served as the editor of The Independent Florida Alligator. In addition, he studied Journalism at Ludwig Maximillian Universitaet in Munich, Germany, while becoming fluent in German.

After graduation, Kyle worked as the Bureau Manager for United Press International in Montgomery, AL. Later he worked as a staff writer and business editor for the Orlando Sentinel.

Kyle moved to New York and later Los Angeles, CA in order to pursue an acting career. As a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG/AFTRA) and Actors' Equity he sang, danced, and acted his way through numerous theater performances, television commercials and series, renaissance festivals, and several movies.

He fell in love with teaching after earning a Master's Degree in Education from the University of La Verne. He taught high school English, including honors and advanced placement classes, for 10 years at Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita, CA where he said he continued to act every day in front of his classes. Kyle was a strict teacher who demanded much of his students, while he also gave much of himself. His vocabulary tests and homework assignments were legendary and students often returned to thank him for preparing them so well and for the impact he had on their lives.

Kyle had a larger-than-life personality and talent. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his ability to create puns and double entendres at the drop of a hat, his exuberant love for life, his family, his students, acting, traveling, and collecting memorabilia.

He leaves behind his adoring mother, Joan, his two brothers: Kevin and Kim Kulish and their respective partners Beverly McPhail and Rebecca Howard; his nephews Justin and Joshua Kulish and his beloved aunt Patricia Maurer; as well as many friends, current and former students. He was preceded in death by his father, Richard.

Donations in Kyle's memory may be made to an educational institution, performing arts venue, or charity of your choice.

A Memorial Service is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Friday, December 18, 2015 at the Golden Valley High School theater, 27051 Robert C. Lee Parkway, Santa Clarita, CA 91350.
