KULLY, Sheldon David Thursday, December 7, 2006 Sheldon David Kully 79, passed away December 2, 2006 after a courageous battle with lung cancer and heart disease. Sheldon was born in San Francisco on January 8, 1927 the older of two sons of Max and Sophie Kully. He is survived by his devoted wife of 36 years, Barbara Sacks Kully; his two children, Elizabeth Fenn and Mark Kully, and three grandchildren Lauren, Austin and Shelby. He is also survived by his son-in-law Mel Fenn; sisters-in-law, Betty Hubel, Priscilla Gilbert, and Holly Kully; his Aunt Anne Stein and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Sheldon graduated from Lowell High School, received a masters degree in business administration from UC Berkeley and a masters degree in international affairs from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. At the age of 17 he joined the U.S, Navy in which he has a distinguished career for 37 years. He began his Navy career as a quartermaster/seaman and attained the rank of captain before he retired. His tours of duty were too numerous to detail here. He received his first commission upon his graduation from Officer Candidate School at Newport, Rhode Island. He served in Europe and in Asia. As a line officer he captained the USS Henry W. Tucker, a destroyer. As an Attache, he served in Taiwan and Hong Kong. In his last assignment in Hong Kong he was the highest ranking military attache in the department. In preparation for these Pacific Rim assignments, the Navy sent him to their Language Institute in Monterey, where he became fluent in Mandarin Chinese. After retiring in late 1981, Sheldon and Barbara returned to the Bay Area and eventually settled in Sonoma County. He became involved and quite knowledgeable in the wine industry and was a legend in the Sonoma and Napa Counties tasting rooms of various wineries, including Ravenswood, Viansa, and Kunde. Donations may be made in his name to: Congregation Shir Shalom, 252 West Spain Street, Sonoma, CA 95476.
