May God Bless the Family of Mike McCullough. I saw Mike not too long ago, it was around his father's death and we briefly got caught up on the family and things but never a mention of his trial with cancer. I provided anesthesia for his father for many years and most of Mike's adult  life I viewed through his father's recollection as we worked together. I always wanted to go and visit , as I said many times, but now I will wait to see my friend later. I would say I was closer to Mike during my OU days but definitely called him a friend through Jr. HIgh and High School. I'm sad today as I post this note but glad I knew Mike and was able to share some of life together. I'm sure in saying he will be loved and he is promised a room in doubt.                               Victor Long

Saddened to hear about the passing of Mike McCullough. He was a great guy and we go back to 7th grade at West Jr. High thru NHS years and then on to OU together. A lot of fun memories were made during those years and last time I saw Mike was at 40 year reunion. He was extremely proud of his children. He was a gentlemen and a scholar! Got to be tough on Jeff Niemeyer who was one of his closest friends. Will always remember Mike and the fun times we shared. Condolences to his family. Will keep them in our prayers.
