Tommy McCulloh of Mocksville died on Friday, March 27, 2020 after a battle with cancer.

He was born to Hal Thomas McCulloh Sr. and Inez Hilton McCulloh on Nov. 5, 1946 and spent his early years in Clemmons, attending West Forsyth High School where he loved playing and excelled in football and baseball.  After retiring from RJR Archer, he pursued a longtime hobby and became a self-taught accomplished photographer. He enjoyed photographing nature, thunderstorms, pretty girls and race cars, especially open-wheeled modified and pro-mods. He was a member of the Artworks Photo Club in Mocksville and was most proud of being selected to document the restoration process of the WinMock Barn at Kinderton.

He was pre-deceased by: his father, Hal McCulloh; and father and mother-in-law, Milton and Elsie Blackburn.

Survivors: his mother of Winston-Salem; his wife of more than 50 years, Phyllis; Sherry and Lee McCulloh; and neighbors, Tammy and Tony Spainhour.

Never at a loss for words, he was honest, kindhearted, a patriot to his country and loyal to his beliefs.

A private family graveside service will be held on Monday, March 30 at Oak Grove United Methodist Church cemetery by Tommy Barney.

Memorials: Humane Society of Davie, 291 Eaton Road, Mocksville; or to Trellis Supportive Care, 377 Hospital St. #103, Mocksville.
