SKOT (Scotty) McCullough, died in his sleep on August 11, 2014, in Santa Clara County, California. He was 32 years old.

Upon high school graduation, SKOT entered the Air Force. After his time with the Air Force, SKOT traveled all over the United States in a 1970 Volkswagen Bus, making new friends and visiting old friends. Family, friends and strangers followed his two year "Home on the Roam" journey on the internet.
SKOT grew up an animal lover having many pets. In 2006 he found a soul mate when he adopted his dog Dubba, a husky/malamute mix. Dubba was a faithful companion and accompanied SKOT on life's every adventure. They were an inseparable pair.
SKOT was a free spirit and a lover of life. He loved the beach. He loved the mountains. He loved the sun. He loved the snow. He flew kites. He wore skis. He loved to travel. He loved his family and friends, and was very much loved by all those that knew him. He always had a smile and never met a stranger. His death leaves a hole in the hearts; however, we will choose "not to cry because it's over, but to smile because it happened."
Funeral will be held Sunday, August 24, at 2 p.m. (Visitation - 1 p.m.) at Southern Memorial Funeral Home, Highland Ave, Montgomery, Al. Internment immediately following at Greenwood Cemetery. We will celebrate SKOT's free spirit by going VERY casual for the funeral. Wear your shorts, flip flops, tie-dye or whatever makes you smile. In lieu of flowers, please bring a card with your favorite memories of SKOT (blank cards will also be provided), these will be presented to his daughter, Chloe.
