E. Falls Yachtsman
Killed in Viet Action

An East Falls man known as a yachtsman and crew member of the America's Cup entry "Constellation" has been killed in action in Vietnam, the Defense Department announced Monday.
Second Lt. Frederick W. Kulicke 3d, 25, of 3840 The Oak rd., was leading a platoon in the Mekong Delta when he was killed Saturday. He was with the 39th Infantry Regiment of the 9th Division.
He had been in Vietnam only since last month.
In 1967, when he was graduated from Union College, Schenectady, N.Y., as an economics major, he volunteered and was trained for an Army commission at Fort Benning, Ga. He also was a graduate of Penn Charter School and a member of the Phi Upsilon Fraternity.
In 1964, he was a member of the crew 'Constellation' when it defeated the British challenger 'Sovereign' for the America's Cup in four straight races.
He also took part in past summers in the Newport-Bermuda race and in the 1966 transatlantic race from Bermuda to Copenhagen as one of the 10 men who formed the crew of the 64-foot Challenge, owned by George Fenimore Johnson of Newtown Square. It finished fourth in a field of a dozen Class A or larger boats in a 17-day crossing.
The Kulicke family, including his father, Frederick Jr., mother, Ruth, and a brother, C. Scott, 19, formed the crew of their own 41-foot yawl.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Frederick won the America's Cup in 1964 as a crew member of the Constellation

Frederick W. Kulicke 3rd
The Oak Road, East Falls

Kulicke enjoyed sailboat racing and sailing on his family’s 41-foot sailboat. One of his biggest thrills came in 1964 when the Constellation, of which he was a crew member, won the America’s Cup in four consecutive races. He graduated from William Penn Charter School and Union College in Schenectady, N.Y. He was a project engineer at his father’s company, Kulicke & Soffa Industries, in Fort Washington, before entering the Army in March 1968. The 25-year-old second lieutenant, an assistant operations officer, died in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam, on February 22, 1969. He was survived by his parents and a brother.

I wish I would have met with you

You called to tell me you had just gotten your orders and were leaving right away. We had been in a beef and I didn't come to meet you, to say good by.

Please forgive me.
