Norman William McCullough passed away May 25, 2023 at the age of 90 years old at the Carberry Health Centre.
Norman was born on July 27, 1932 to William and Agatha McCullough of Edrans, Manitoba. A ’32 model he’d like to tell people. He married his sweetheart Mary (nee Wiebe) on June 14, 1958. They would have been celebrating 65 years together in a few short weeks.
Norm was a man who wore many hats in his lifetime. He started farming at a young age with his father and eventually took over the family farm. He loved grain farming and building up his herd of cattle but allergies and some health struggles required him to change career paths. Norm was a skilled carpenter and worked in the carpentry industry for a few years and then went on to be the caretaker and ice maker for the Carberry Rink. A job that he also loved and was very good at.
He and mom went on many road trips together to Ontario, BC, Northern Manitoba and the United States. A Panama Cruise in 1998 was a highlight vacation for mom and dad. The last several years he loved to go for country drives searching for wildlife or friends to pop in on.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife Mary, three children, Ron (Donna), Lionel, Collette (Al) Lepp. Grandchildren Terri-Lynn (Dana), Kandace (Mark), Andrew (Priscilla), great grandchildren Jonathan, Ruth, Kate, Jayse, Eden and Isabelle. Sister Betty (Bill) McLaren and many extended family members.
He was predeceased by four sisters and their spouses and one brother. Annie (Cornie) Martens, Dora (Ken) Smith, Lilla (Art) Wright, brother Cecil McCullough, Marina (Don) Pedersen.
Celebration of Life will be held Saturday June 3, 2pm at Carberry Evangelical Free Church. Lunch to follow at the Carberry Community Hall.
