KERRVILLE — Robert Donald “Bob” McCullough, 82, died peacefully on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. He was born Dec. 31, 1937, in Bonham, Texas, the son of William Robert and Gladys Leona (Sonntag) McCullough.

Bob graduated from North Dallas High School, Class of 1955. He graduated from the University of Texas, Austin, with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering in 1960. Upon graduation, he served two years in the U.S. Navy and was stationed in Aruba.

After graduating from UT, he married his high school sweetheart, Peggy Ann Prewitt. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

Bob enjoyed music, art, traveling, dancing, a drive on a country road in his convertible and a great meal. He was a proud Texan, avid reader, stock trader and great source for the next best show to stream online. Most importantly, Bob was a loving, proud and devoted husband, father and grandfather. He considered his family one of his greatest accomplishments. 

Bob is survived by his loving wife, Peggy Ann McCullough (Prewitt); his oldest son, William Randolph “Bill” McCullough and wife, Meredith of Austin; his daughter, Laurie (McCullough) Tuttle and her husband, Kirk and their sons, Kohl and John of San Antonio; his youngest son, John Eric McCullough and his wife, Denise and children, Hannah, Cooper and Clive of Kerrville; and his sister, Anne Pfeiffer (nee McCullough) of Louisville, Kentucky.
