He enjoyed fishing and hunting.
“I can’t really express in words how much you mean to me, or how much you were (still are) a big part of my life. You’re the big brother Elijah and I never had, the one who kept us strong, when everyone else thought things were falling apart. I never imagined this day would come. Elijah will always remember the cruising for chicks, and I’ll always remember the big brother-little sister talks we had. We love and miss you, always and forever,” the family said.
Mr. McCullough was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jack Stafford of Funny River, and Speck and Helen McCullough.
He is survived by his wife, Christina McCullough of Anchorage; parents, Lee and Cindy McCullough of Oregon; sister, Jessica McCullough of Oregon; niece, Catlin of Oregon; grandmother, Audrey Stafford of Funny River; aunts and uncles, Pam and Billy Waldon, Jackie and Oly Helgevold, Annette and Alan Christiansen, Susie Stafford, Jim and Linda, Elaine Hetterly, Sylvia Adams and Judy Barthel; great-aunt, Eileen Kohler; great-uncle, Edwin Gilweit; guardian Elijah; and many cousins in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Iowa.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent in Mr. McCullough’s name to the Funny River Lutheran Community Church, 35575 Rabbit Road, Mile 15, Soldotna, AK 99669; or the Down’s Syndrome Buddy Walk, 25960 White Spruce Drive, Eagle River, AK 99577.
