New Brunswick, NJ


Dorsha Kuldinow, a man of unyielding courage, profound generosity, and boundless charisma, peacefully passed away on December 7, 2023, in the comfort of his home. Born on July 23, 1964, in New Brunswick, NJ; Dorsha's life was a tapestry woven with remarkable achievements and a profound impact on all who crossed his path. 

As a United States Marine Tow Gunner, he served his country across various geographies, including Korea, Okinawa, the Philippines, and within the US, becoming a Desert Storm Veteran. His love for adventure extended beyond the Marine Corps; finding solace and joy in fishing, especially the thrill of catching huge tuna. Dorsha was not only a Marine; he was a lifelong upholsterer and a successful entrepreneur, showcasing his determination and entrepreneurial spirit.

Dorsha's insatiable thirst for knowledge and adventure knew no bounds. In his 50s, he continued to grow by becoming fluent in Spanish, college level math, English literature, and even piloting planes. His magnetic personality, characterized by mischievous pranks and a heartwarming sense of humor, earned him a vast network of friends across the globe.

The most important words a person can say is “I will do better”, Dorsha took that to heart and lived by self improvement and aiding others to do the same. His diverse passions encompassed lifting weights, workouts, the beach, hiking, traveling, and cultivating lush greenery with his green thumb.

A loving father to Sam and Joanna and a cherished friend, Dorsha's infectious smile illuminated every room. His impact extended beyond his family; Dorsha frequently cared for wayward souls, leaving behind a legacy of care, generosity, and selflessness in all who encountered him.

One cherished memory remains etched in the hearts of his children: a cross-California adventure that unfolded in laughter and joy. Though Dorsha's wish to fish throughout the journey shifted when Joanna fell seasick, he seamlessly transformed the trip. They explored the majestic Redwoods, marveled at Yosemite's beauty, immersed themselves in San Francisco's vibrancy, experienced Los Angeles' bustling energy, and reveled in San Diego's serene beaches with his brother Jay. 

Dorsha's love for adventure extended to the depths of the ocean as a PADI certified Open Water Scuba Diver, completing dives all over the world, exploring the beauty beneath the waves. He was also an avid skydiver, embracing the exhilaration of freefalling through the sky. His passion for fishing resonated deeply within him, connecting him to nature's rhythm and the thrill of the catch.

Dorsha's passion for motorcycles was as deep as his love for adventure. He served as the treasurer of the Klean N Krazy Motorcycle Club, embodying his passion for the open road. He completed a cross-country trip 4500 miles to Salt Lake City and back, fulfilling his wanderlust. A lifelong dream came true when he rode the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee, an exhilarating moment etched in the fabric of his adventurous spirit.

His prowess extended to skiing as an expert skier, conquering the most difficult double black diamond trails around the US and Canada with his children.

This journey epitomized Dorsha's adaptability, ensuring each moment radiated with love and cherished memories. His ability to transform unexpected situations into unforgettable adventures showcased his devotion to family. His legacy lives on through this adventure, a testament to his spontaneity, care, and love.
