Farewell to Cully

By Harriet Benson

Bob Cullenbine (Cully), a long-time supporter of Stanford Women’s Basketball has died. When I interviewed for my book him several years ago, Cully spoke of the immediate excitement he felt when he watched his first game. He noted that he had thought himself a good player in high school, but “these women were so much better.” His active support was appreciated from the late 1980’s, when there were only a handful of boosters, and especially during our formative Fast Break Club days in the 1990’s. He sat behind the team bench during games for nearly 30 years.

In addition to our common bond with women’s basketball, Cully was my neighbor and friend. I was happy to help him during the early years of Family Giving Tree, founded by his daughter Jennifer, and I admired his ability to identify priorities for how he lived his life. He will be missed by many.

Celebration of Cully’s life: Aug 11, 2pm, 1315 Hollenbeck, Sunnyvale.
