It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Garth McCullough, aged 84, on October 10, 2017, at the Carman Memorial Hospital with family at his side.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 60 years, Jean; sons Wes (Cathy), Keith (Angela), Doug (Darlene); daughter, Joy; brother, Bill; and brother-in-law Ken Last. Along with his eleven grandchildren, Adam (Meaghan), Brodie, Amanda, Dale, Harley (Stephanie), Jill, Kristine, Glenn, Kevin, Caitlin, and Ashley.

He was predeceased by his parents Harry & Amy; brother, Jim; sister-in-law, Georgina; and sister, Margaret Last.

Garth was born in June of 1933, at Mrs. Smith’s Nursing Home in Carman. He lived his entire life in the St. Daniel Community, attending a one room country school for his entire education. In June of 1957 he married Jean Wood, and together they raised their family while farming northwest of Carman. Garth was a dedicated farmer- whether he was raising and caring for livestock or growing crops, he was happiest on his farm. Garth supported all of his children and grandchildren through their 4-H endeavors. Curling was one of his passions, both as a competitor and spectator. He looked forward to a night out with his teammates. In the fall of 1998, Garth and Jean moved to town. Garth spent his days woodworking, visiting with the neighbours, and spending quality time with his family. For the last year, Garth was a resident of the Boyne Lodge.

Anyone who knew Garth will remember his witty one liners, as well as his loving and playful personality.

A celebration of his life was held on October 13, 2017, at the Carman United Church, Rev. Harold Kenyon officiating. Interment took place in Greenwood Cemetery, Carman.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Boyne Lodge and the Carman Memorial Hospital for the wonderful care.

If friends so desire, a memorial donation can be made to Carman United Church Memorial Fund, Carman Palliative Care, or the Parkinson Society of Manitoba.
