McCULLEY

With fond memories and heavy hearts, the family of William “Bill” James McCulley announce his passing at Medicine Hat Regional Hospital on Monday, September 2, 2019 – 28 days short of his 87th birthday. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Loretta; two sons, Duane McCulley (Janet Jensen) of Calgary and Darryl (Carrie) McCulley of Abbotsford, B.C.; two grandchildren, Lucas and Sumner both of Abbotsford; his sister Joyce Kozak of Camrose; sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Mary Ellen Pudwell of Okotoks, Betty and Bill Hoff of Medicine Hat as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Bill was predeceased by two sons in infancy; his parents, Tillie and Sam; and one brother Bob, his wife Rose and their son Greg; his in-laws, John and Louise Pudwell; sister-in-law Margery Pudwell; brothers-in-law, Lloyd Pudwell and Ken Kozak. Bill was born and raised in Medicine Hat. He loved all sports, but hockey was his passion. He played for the local Tigers hockey club, Red Deer Rustlers, Drumheller Miners (this team was inducted into the Alberta Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008). A few years later he was asked to join the Lacombe Rockets when they went on their European tour. He then played for the Portland Buckaroos of the Western Hockey League. The team won the championship the first year in the league, and were inducted into the State of Oregon Hall of Fame in 1990. He returned to Red Deer and later moved his family back to Medicine Hat where went into the Real-Estate business. Hockey was to be a thing of the past, but the Joyline Blades owner, with a little coaxing, persuaded him to “lace up and join the club”. He would refer to those years as the best hockey with the most fun. Bill enjoyed life and had a great senseof humour as his health declined. Several times during the past few months he would often say “this sure doesn’t take the place of a good BBQ steak and a shot of rye” when his wife handed him an energy bar and a bottle of Glucerna. The last couple of years Bill had the privilege of attending the day program at Good Sam’s, enjoying the fellowship and all the special attention provided to him by the caring staff. Those who wish to celebrate Bill’s life are encouraged to tilt a glass in his honour. At Bill’s request there will be no funeral service. In lieu of flowers, as an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Diabetes Association or to the “Day Program” at Good Sam’s. To e-mail an expression of sympathy, please direct it to: pattfh@telusplanet.net subject heading: Bill McCulley, or you may visit http://www.pattisonfuneralhome.com and leave a message of condolence.
