Joe McCulloch, 79, of Midland, TX passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, surrounded by his family.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:00 PM on Friday, February 11, 2022, at Sunset Memorial Funeral Home with Pastor Jeff Hoskinson of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church officiating.
Joe was born in Levelland, TX to Pat and Ethel McCulloch on January 3, 1943. He graduated from Levelland High School where he played football. He then married the love of his life, Micki McKissack on July 22, 1966, in Whiteface, TX. Joe worked as an Operations Manager for Petroplex Equipment for 25 years before retiring. He served in the Army and was honorably discharged July 30, 1965. He was ordained as a Deacon in December of 1991. This was a responsibility and honor he did not take lightly, as it deepened and strengthened his relationship with Christ. He was also a proud Master Mason for over 50 years in the Levelland Order #1236, and was also later inducted into the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry 32* of Lubbock, TX in 1973. Anyone that knew Joe also knew that he loved their home away from home at Lake Brownwood and spent much of his time there with Micki and family.
Joe is preceded in death by his father Pat, mother Ethel, brothers Bill McCulloch and Glen McCulloch, and sister Lois O'Dell.
Joe is survived by his loving wife Micki, sons Shane and Kelly, brother Nick and his wife Gayla McCulloch, brother-in-law Frank O'Dell, sisters-in-law Patsy McCulloch and Eloyce McCulloch, and his precious grandchildren Brylynd and Vawn McCulloch, along with numerous other nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family of Joe wishes to extend our sincere thanks to his many doctors and nurses who have tirelessly fought alongside him during his 7-year battle with cancer. And to Pleasant Grove Baptist Church at Lake Brownwood and its loving members; thank you for all the love, support, and prayers for Joe. We would also like to thank Hospice of Midland for their compassionate care. And finally, to his very dear friends Jim and Olivia Padgett, who meant so very much to him - thank you for everything.
