Ray Alvin McCulley

May 22, 1945 — February 2, 2024

Ray A. McCulley, age 78, of Parker, Kansas, passed away on Friday, February 2, 2024, at his home surrounded by family.

Ray was born on May 22, 1945, in Trading Post, Kansas, to Oscar A. and Clara D. (Culbertson) McCulley. Ray served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War as a Power Plant Operator and a truck driver. After serving, he returned home and married the love of his life, Linda Kelly. This union was blessed with two children.

He worked for Carrol Ball Transport and Debrick Truck Lines for many years as an owner/operator. He fell in Tulsa, Oklahoma unloading his trailer and had to retire early after several surgeries. Ray kept busy restoring a John Deere Tractor, raising a few cows, and helping and visiting his friends Charlie and Junior and Neal. Ray was just a phone call away for anyone in need. Directions were his specialty; anyone that called he could get them where they needed to go.

Ray was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin, and great friend. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Ray loved a great joke. He will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his wife Linda of the home; son Ray G. McCulley, daughter Martha E. McCulley and Ron Menser; grandsons, Branden McCulley and Kabra and Will Galey; granddaughter, Paiden McCulley; brother, Rex (Donna), Roy; sisters, Kay Phillipson and Fay Benbrook; god-son Nathan O'Farrell; god-daughter, Kristie Gatlin; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Ray was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Mary McMillan and grandson Christoffer Galey.
