It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Arthur Caulk announces his passing on January 8, 2018, at the age of 83. Rich had a successful music career as a teenager in the Philadelphia area. He joined the army and served as a cook until joining Special Services in Korea. After his discharge, Rich continued to perform and enjoy music, but began a second successful career as a college administrator. He retired from the Princeton University Housing Dept. in 1996. Rich was compassionate and courageous. Throughout his life he felt it was necessary to speak out for those less fortunate. He was always willing to engage people with differing opinions in intelligent and rational discourse. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Pauline, daughter Kelly (Jim Pernicone), son Alan, brother Robert (Gerry), 4 nephews, 1 niece, and many loving relatives by marriage. There will be no funeral services in accordance with his wishes. Memorial donations may be made to Southern Poverty Law Center, 400 Washington Ave., Montgomery, AL 36104 or Seabrook JACL, ?
