Doug W. McCullough, age 67 of Brimfield, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, March 5, 2018.

He was born September 14, 1950, in Akron, Ohio, to parents Kenneth and Catherine (Amendolar) McCullough. Throughout his youth, he lived in Erie, PA and Brimfield, graduating from Field High School in 1968. He retired from Key Bank in 1992 after managing the Ravenna, Rootstown, and Mogadore branch locations, throughout his 21 year career. He also operated his own business, Casual Mortgage Company.

Doug was an active member of St. Peter of the Fields, where he served as an usher, Eucharist Minister and altar server. He was a generous person, always willing to help others. Doug was a contributor to the start-up of The Center of Hope, and also supported the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and the County Clothing Center.

Doug was a member of Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, and the Italian American Society. He enjoyed golfing and hunting for a bargain. Doug left this world doing what he loved.

On January 28, 1972, he married the love of his life, Wilma, at St. Patrick’s Church in Kent. Every day of their 46 year marriage, he asked her “Have I told you today that I loved you?”, and it never got old. They raised their family in Ravenna and Brimfield. Doug had a unique sense of humor, and loved to shower his grandchildren with take home gifts when they visited. He also enjoyed being on the lookout for things that his children “might need someday”. He loved to cook creatively, which was a trait he passed down to his sons.

Doug is survived by his beloved wife Wilma McCullough; his children: Kerry (Floyd) Hollender, Amy (Chad) Pollard, Matthew (Amanda) McCullough, Mark McCullough, and Julie McCullough; along with his grandchildren: Megan and Garrett Hollender, Logan, Lucas, and Jessica Pollard, Jordan, Katie, Matt, Lindsey, and Emily McCullough, Tyler, Madison, and Ryah McCullough. Doug is also survived by his brother: Carl (Twyla) McCullough, step-brother: Danny (Barb) Miley, and his brother from another mother: Gary Thompson. He was preceded in death by his father Kenneth McCullough, mother Catherine Miley, and step-father Charles Miley.

Sorry to hear of Doug's passing. Although our paths did not cross much after High School. I just wanted to offer my condolences to his Family since we both were part of the class of 1968 from Field High.

Doug and I have been friends for 50 years. We were introduced when I married Wilma's sister Pearl. I always looked forward to family events where we would inevitably get together to discuss 'the issue of the day' and some form of technology or his latest project.
We always found common ground. I will miss Doug.

Wilma and family, Sue and I are so sorry to learn of Doug’s passing. He epitomized the definition of a good husband, father and grandfather. Unfortunately Sue and I are in AZ and will be unable to attend the funeral to express our regrets in person. Our prayers are with you.

When Dave and I were first married we became close friends with Doug and Wilma. Dave and Doug worked together at the bank. We had so many fun experiences together! As we got older we did not see them as much, but when we saw them it was as if time never passed. They say you can’t make “old friends”. I have found this to be so true. We treasure the friendship that we had with Doug and still have with Wilma. Rest In Peace, dear friend; you will be missed.

Doug always loved a good bargain. While shopping if he saw something that he knew someone would like he would pick it up for them. He will be missed. Hugs to the family.
