I was very sorry to hear about Mr. Cullum. I had the pleasure of meeting him at Table #9 at Stonegate Nursing Home earlier this year when my Dad shared meals with him. He was such a sweet man, loved talking about his sons and how proud he was of them, he was a delight to spend time with. I am very blessed to have been able to get to know him just a little bit. Prayers for his family.

At Wedgwood Middle School in the 80's, I knew Mr. Cullum as a kind and gentle man who would do anything for anybody. He was truly one of the "good guys." As the Head Man, he was responsible for the building and could be counted on to have everything clean and ready to go. He was a valued member of the staff and well thought of, as evidenced by the school tearbook being dedicated to him the year he retired. We need more men like him.
