John McCullough

Memorial services for John McCullough, of Knoxville, were held on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at the Bybee & Davis Funeral Home with Elder Bill McDonald officiating. John has been cremated and burial will be in the Olive Chapel Cemetery at a later date. Musical selections of: “Amazing Grace”, “Go Rest High on that Mountain” and “Iowa Hawkeye Fight Song” were shared.

John Leslie McCullough was born June 11, 1935, in Allerton, Iowa, the son of Millard Charles McCullough and Opal Delight (Kaizer) McCullough.

He was raised in Melcher-Dallas and played high school basketball, football and baseball. During high school, John worked for Bingham Feed & Grain and he continued to work there following graduation. He then went to work for the CO-OP in Knoxville. On July 6, 1957, he was united in marriage to Connie Mae Spencer in Des Moines. To this union one son, Mike, was born. John would later take a job at Moorman’s where he stayed until he retired in 1993.

John enjoyed watching sports, most especially the Iowa Hawkeyes, followed closely by the Knoxville Panthers. He was a Hawkeye football season ticket holder and had a lifetime pass to all Panther sporting events. He also played league softball as a young adult. John and Connie also loved to travel and had visited many places throughout the United States. John could always strike up a conversation with a stranger, wherever he and Connie were, and he always had another friend before they left. His greatest joy in life, however, was his family and he cherished his wife, son, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and siblings.

John passed away on Friday, March 15, 2013, at the Comfort House, in Pella, at the age of 77 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents; 5 sisters and 3 brothers.

Those left to honor his memory include his loving wife of 55 years, Connie; son, Mike (Marsha) McCullough of Knoxville; grandchildren: Scott (Shawna) McCullough of Plano, Ill., Joel McCullough of Knoxville, Andrea (Corey) Loukota of Knoxville and Marissa McCullough of Knoxville; great-grandchildren: Carter Loukota, Dane Loukota and Cooper McCullough; brothers: Robert Dale (Barbara) McCullough of Pleasantville and Jerry (Linda) McCullough of Bondurant and many other family members and friends.
