Wendell Holmes McCulloch Jr. Obituary
July 21, 1921 - January 27, 2016
Wendell was the only child of Zadie and Wendell Holmes McCulloch, Sr. He was born in Louisville, Kentucky and after many moves in the interim, ultimately moved to Long Beach, California 45 years ago. He died peacefully of natural causes. Wendell was a pilot with the Army Air Corps in WWII. He attended George Washington University for his undergraduate degree and Yale Law for his Doctorate of Jurisprudence. He most recently served on the faculty of the Business Department at Long Beach State University as a professor for almost 40 years. Wendell was the husband of Sally McCulloch, the father of Malinda Marsh, the father-in-law of Chris Marsh and the grandfather of Sean Michael, Danny and Xavier Marsh. He was always well-read and able to converse on any topic with ease. He will be greatly missed, but his spirit lives on in all who loved him dearly.
His memorial service will be held at St. Luke's Church in Long Beach, California at 2 pm on Saturday, February 6, 2016. Donations may be made in his memory to Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, 2929 Children's Way, San Diego, CA 92123 or online at www.rmhcsd.org.
