Carl Gulock

February 16, 1936 — April 27, 2020

Mr. Carl Randolph Gulock, 84, departed this life peacefully on April 27, 2020 at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital with his family by his side. He was born on February 16, 1936 to Steve and Edna Gulock in Hamtramck, Michigan. Carl resided in Somerset, Kentucky with his loving wife of almost 54 years, the love of his life, Vivian Marie DeSilvia Gulock who he married on July 16, 1966. He was a member of Saint Mildred’s Catholic Church of Somerset, KY and a retired employee of Lear Siegler. Carl served our country as a paratrooper of the 82nd Airborne. Anyone who had the privilege to know Carl, knows he loved life and he loved people. He truly enjoyed putting others first. Carl was a loving husband, father and grandfather who was very proud of all of his grandchildren. He loved cooking big meals for his family and friends, dancing the night away at weddings, working in his yard and watching football games (especially Somerset High School, Virginia Tech and Middle Tennessee Football). In addition to his wife, Carl is survived by his sons, Jeff (and Cathy) of Ballston Lake, NY; Jim (and Beth) of Somerset, KY and Scott (and Becky) of Somerset KY; his grandchildren, Danielle Gulock of Louisville, KY; Chelsea Felts of Somerset, KY; Nikki (and Dusty) Phelps of Shelbyville, KY; Ethan Gulock of Raleigh, NC; Trevor Gulock of Ballston Lake, NY; and Anna Marie, Grayson and Gage Gulock of Somerset, KY; as well as his great grandchildren, Braylee and Chet Phelps. He is also survived by his sister, Geraldine Gulock of Hamtramck, MI; his brother, Donald Gulock of Diamond Dale, MI; and his brother-in-law, Edward DeSilvia of Somerset, KY. In addition to his parents, Carl is preceded in death by his step-mother, Ann Gulock, who raised him; his sister, Teresa; his brother, Steven (Bob) Gulock; and his mother and father-in-law, Edward and Myra DeSilvia. Carl had gentle spirit and a heart of gold. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends. His family would like to thank Hospice of Lake Cumberland and the Hospice Unit at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital for their wonderful love and support in Carl’s final days. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Carl’s name to: Hospice of Lake Cumberland, 100 Parkway Drive, Somerset, KY 42503. A private service will be held at Pulaski Funeral Home on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Carl will be interred at Mill Springs National Cemetery.
