Alex was born in San Francisco CA, son of the late Anthony A. Kulas, and was raised in Japan, Duluth MN, and West Palm Beach FL, as his father served with the U.S. Air Force. He and his wife, Mary, settled in Groton MS nearly 25 years ago.

He was a graduate of the University of Florida, Gainesville, and was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War. For many years, he worked in the computer industry as a programmer and test engineer. A member of Sacred Heart-St. James Church of Groton, Alex was an avid reader, a Star Trek "Trekkie," and enjoyed water skiing, chess, golf and tennis. Alex was a sophamore when he attended Johnson High School in 1964. We have included his picture from that high school yearbook.
