Andrew K. "Andy" Kulaga of North Richland Hills, Texas passed away on November 15, 2020 in North Richland Hills, Texas.

He will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to all that loved him. He was born March 29, 1929 in Pennsylvania to Joe A. and Mary Kulaga. Andy attended Taylor University in Indiana where he met and married his wife of 70 years, Marilyn Shook. After graduating college, he attended Ohio State University School of Dentistry, attaining his DDS degree, and then spent four years as a dentist in the US Army. Upon discharge from the Army he practiced general dentistry in Fort Worth, Texas for a few years before obtaining his MSD degree in orthodontics from Baylor University School of Orthodontics in Dallas, Texas. He then practiced orthodontics in Ft. Worth, TX and Richland Hills, TX from the early 1960s until finally retiring completely in his early 80s after practicing part-time in Burleson, TX.

Andy was a professing Christian and a long-time member of North Richland Hills Baptist Church in North Richland Hills, Texas. Until his later years, he loved to play golf, often going on group tournaments. He also loved to make things for other people in his garage shop. Even when living in the retirement center apartment, the kitchen table was always cluttered with projects and various tools.

Andy was preceded in death by his parents Joe and Mary Kulaga, brothers Ted, John, and Joseph Kulaga, and son Thomas. He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Marilyn, sons Andrew (Sue) and Robert (Mouri), 5 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
