558805_612283472134137_268848413_nOur beloved brother Robert (Bob) McCulley passed away on Saturday, April 6 at the age of 94. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Grace United Methodist Church in Brooklyn, Iowa, with the Rev. John Dodds officiating. Bob was an active member of the Brooklyn COB until its closing. He was also a favorite camp counselor at Camp Pine Lake for multiple generations of campers.
