Russell Park McCullough, 34, of Fairfax, passed away on April 19, 2021 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Russ was born in Del Rio, Texas to Yong and Patrick McCullough on December 8, 1986. He went to school at Oakton High School and later graduated from George Mason University. He worked as a Director for Elavon, a U.S. Bank company for three years.

Russ had a passion for sports and his athletic ability was truly a God given talent. He excelled at every sport he participated in including, soccer, lacrosse, and pole-vaulting. He was a musical enthusiast who played guitar and loved classical cello.

He enjoyed fishing and anything in nature. He was a free spirit and enjoyed the finer things in life. He was very close to his mother and brother and they will both agree that the true love of if his life was ‘Griffy’, his beloved mutt that he rescued from a fence-and-chain life to one of true companionship.

Russ is survived by his brother, Gregory McCullough; his mother, Yong McCullough; his nephew, Parker McCullough; and his niece, Emilia McCullough.

I remember the day when my son, Sam, came home from 3rd grade talking about the “new boy” in his classroom. It was Russell McCollough. These two boys became lifelong friends & have shared so much in 34 years. Russell always had a smile on his face, an incredibly positive attitude & a pure joy to be around. We loved him so much in the Vandever house. Prayers & love to Yong & Greg.

I will miss you every single day, Russ. From our 7th grade reading class with Mrs. Neal, to our date in high school when I got my first speeding ticket, to our two hour phone conversations lately. You will always hold such a special place in my heart, I will forever save every selfie you ever sent me to make me smile when I’m down. I love you #4.

We were 8 years old the first day we met. You’ve been my best friend ever since. Bikes. Skates. Clothes. Movies. Music. Crushes - we learned it all together. I learned true friendship from you. True loyalty. True kindness. I’ll always love you, Brother. In times of happiness, love, loss and beauty, I will always think of you. I’ll see you again one day, Brother. The love you left will not be forgotten. I love you and will miss you so much, Russell.
