Uncle Bud, there never was a more standup guy... you were always supportive of all us boys in all of our endeavors, be it baseball, video games, or the oilfield... no matter what we loved, you loved it too, for us... take care of Grampy and Mr. McCullough for us, and make sure Uncle David doesn’t fall out of the boat... tell Grandma and Mrs. McCullough that we love them... I bet it’s quite a party now that you’re up there!.. I love you Uncle Bud, always, Larry Wayne...

Buddy, You loved God and you were steadfast in your faith and family. You were so compassionate and loving when talking about your family and your face lit up when you spoke of your nieces and nephews! You talked of them so much that I thought that they lived in Houston and also their children! ❤️ It was fighting time when something happened when your nephew visited and you, Our Sweet, Demure Hunk of a Man, was asked to move to another location! You told me later, “Man that’s MY FAMILY that I don’t get to see them much and this place gets picky!” You said you calmed down, but you were ready to GO at a MOMENTS notice if they came again! So, All of the McCulloughs’, y’all can rest assured Your Brother, Brother-in-law, Uncle and Cousin or a relative I can’t think of, BUDDY LOVED EVERY ONE OF YOU SO DEARLY AND IS YOUR ANGEL NOW, WATCHING OVER AND PROTECTING HIS LOVED ONES NOW, THANKS TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER! 🙏🏻❤️
I Will Miss Our Talks Sooo, Sooo Much, Buddy, but to be continued! ❤️🙏🏻

I’ll always remember Buddy in many positive ways-with a big smile and a great sense of humor, always great with a story. He was a groomsman in my wedding to his dear friend, Duane and we saw him often during the years I lived in Texas. Most of all, I remember his infectious laugh and big bear hugs. My prayers go out to all of his family and friends that were blessed to have him in their lives.
