Robert William Culp, 82, owned jewelry business


Robert William Culp, the retired owner of a jewelry business, died of a hemorrhage Thursday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Cedarcroft resident was 82.

Born in Baltimore, he attended public schools and was an Army combat engineer during World War II. He landed at Normandy and fought in France.

He joined his father's business, the James R. Arminger Co., a jewelry and china firm located for many years in the 300 block of N. Charles St. He became a certified gemologist and relocated the shop to York Road near Towson and later to Ruxton. He retired about 20 years ago.

His wife of 20 years, the former Catharine Smith, died in 1971.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Faith Presbyterian Church, 5400 Loch Raven Blvd., where he was a member.

Survivors include three daughters, Judith C. Smith, Karen C. Brooks and Phyllis C. Ward, all of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.
