He always looked forward to helping with brandings in the spring and really enjoyed taking his dogs out to look for that "monster coon."

He is deeply mourned and missed by his mother Debbie McCullough of Bassett, Nebraska; sisters, Keri McCullough of Riverside, California and Amy McCullough of Bassett; brother, Jeffrey Larson of Valentine, Nebraska.

Condolence & Memory Journal

My condolences mean so little this is not what I expected to see when looking him up on Facebook to try and regain contact after we lost contact years ago with him and his family's short stay in Savage, Mt.

I'm so sorry. This cuts deep, I really liked him a lot for the short time. I wish I had reached out sooner. Rest in peace buddy.
