    Sorry to hear this. Kelly was a good friend and a groomsman at my wedding, and I wish I had kept in touch better.

    William Downs aka Bill says:

    My sincere heartfelt condolences to the McCullough family. I’m an old friend from his elementary school days. We were best friends until 5th grade when I moved to Louisiana. Something came upon me to search his name on Google while waiting to pick up my son from school. I account it to God. It is with a heavy heart I should find his obituary. I can’t even begin to imagine the loss but I am mourning with his family. It seems from the responses left that he stayed true to the person I knew in our first years. He was truly a great guy. I have thought about those times we had growing up with fond memories. The world lost a great one. My prayers are with you McCullough family.

    I just heard about the loss of my old friend today, I have not spoke to him in more than two decades but Kelly and his family cross my mind so often. He was always the voice of reason in a group of rowdy teenage skaters. I remember he broke a window once and could have walked away but Kelly the Eagle Scout he was and no better example did the right thing and that has stayed with me all these years, I think about our times together often, he was part of and involved in making some of the best memories in my life. Back then not many were granted the honor so I can say I am privileged to have been his friend. John, Carrie, Ian my deepest condolences, this is unimaginable, my love to you and all his family.

    Carrie McCullough says:

    Byron, we cherish the memories as well. I so loved having you, Chad, Ian and Kelly at the house.
    So many good times. Thank you.

    Ian McCullough says:

    We have a lot of good memories, don’t we.

    Karen LaBorde says:

    John and Carrie, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Sending prayers during this very difficult time. My deepest sympathy to you two and the rest of Kelly’s family.

    Carrie McCullough says:

    Thank you, Karen. 🌈💗

    Judy & Fred Schneider says:

    Judy & I are at a loss and our emotions for our dearest old friends Gregg and Carrie are filled with sorrow. We pray you are as strong as I’ve known you to be, and that peace will surround you.

    Love to you both from Judy & Fred Schneider

    Carrie McCullough says:

    Thank you, Judy and Fred, for your kind words. We love you and thank you again. May we share hugs when we meet again. Love to you.

    Cory Kneeland says:

    My friend is at rest with the Lord. I have the hope from Jesus we will meet again! There will now be an empty chair at the game table every time we gather but I know we shall game together again someday! He was the best of us. My prayers for your family and know that he was loved greatly by so many.

    Jennifer McCullough says:

    He loved spending time with “his boys” as he called your group. He always came home happy, because he got to do what he truly enjoyed. He worked hard painting his miniatures, and in my opinion, he was a master at. I’m thankful for you guys, and appreciate every one of you.

    Sandra S Swanson says:

    Jennifer, I was really sorry to hear about Kelly. Karen called us at the office and told us about it. Unbelievable. I have heard such wonderful things about him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
