Bill was born the youngest of nine children on March 19, 1940, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Francis McCullough and Elmira Baker McCullough. He passed away on Thursday, June 8, 2023, in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Bill was in the United States Army from 1961 until 1963. After his time in the Army, he became a hardware sales rep. He was married to the love of his life for 57 years, Nancy Cardwell McCullough. He was a history buff and loved to hear anything about it, especially if it was about military history. He had many military mementos. He enjoyed going on road trips, and he always knew where everything was from driving everywhere. Bill always wanted to go to Normandy one day, but sadly never made it. His family is going to go in his honor. He was a very outgoing person and never met a stranger. He could talk and talk for hours with just about anyone and loved to tell stories. He could not sit still, and he had to always be doing something. He always had a memo pad and pen with him at all times so he could write everything down. Bill enjoyed listing to 50’s music, especially Buddy Holly, and his favorite song from the ’40s is “In The Mood” by Glen Miller. He was a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and the Phillies. Bill was an upbeat always positive quirky little man. Bill loved his family and was very proud of his grandsons, and will be greatly missed.
Bill is preceded in death by his parents; and his eight siblings. He is survived by his wife, Nancy Cardwell McCullough; daughter, Caryn Owens and husband, James; son, Rob McCullough, Jr.; grandsons, Dr. Matthew Cravens and wife, Dr. Lesya Cravens, and Alexander Cravens; great-granddaughter, Brooklyn Miciotto; and numerous nieces and nephews.
