October 17, 1944 - December 4, 2020
William T. McCullough, devoted husband, father, and grandfather was born on October `17, 1944 in Dearborn MI and died on December 4, 2020 in Venice, FL with his family at his side. He is survived by his beloved wife of 43 years, Charlotte McCullough; daughters, Gilda Claudine McCullough and Leslie Erin McCullough; four grandsons—Will and Tommy Karasik and Kai and Knox Talley; adored sons-in-law—Phil Karasik and Jack Talley; extended family; and friends who he loved as family. Bill was a proud veteran of the US Air Force. After his service he sought career and life opportunities to make the world a better, kinder, and more just place. Working in health and human services, he was devoted to those who needed a helping hand and a steadfast advocate. All who knew and loved Bill never doubted his love for them ran deep and his support was unconditional and endless. They will miss his intellect, wit, generosity, bigger than life (sometimes irascible) personality, integrity, and basic decency. Bill always claimed that his awesome daughters got their magical thinking, artistic abilities, beautiful voices, and love of dance from him—his daughters do not disagree, and they raise their sons to carry on their grandfather’s traditions. Bill was passionate about his politics and the causes he believed in and he enjoyed nothing more than a lively debate with those who shared or disagreed with his beliefs. He was a man of simple tastes- he took great pleasure in cooking for or sharing a good meal with family and friends, spoiling his dogs, walking on the beach hand-in-hand with his wife, reading a good book, listening to music, dancing, enjoying a Guinness and a shot, and taking big and small adventures with his family and friends. At some point in the post-COVID-19 future, his family will gather to celebrate his life and share their favorite memories. In the meantime, please honor his legacy through everyday acts of kindness to others and donations to charities of your choice.
