Born June 24, 1949, to the late Gloria L McCulloch and Harold Young McCulloch, Sr. in Newport News, VA.
“Hal”, as he was affectionately known, attended Public Schools where he studied Latin and excelled in Track and Field throughout his High School years. Fitness and health were his passions. He also was an avid reader. He never missed a day running or swimming as a teenager. Later as a young adult, he never missed a day running track until after college. After High School, Hal attended Dartmouth College, in Hanover, New Hampshire and graduated with an A.B. Degree in Classics, and as the Class Summa Cum Laude. He then attended the University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, where he received a Ph.D., in the Classical Studies of Ancient Greek and Roman History. Hal later received a M.B.A., in Business Management at Ryder University, Lawrence Township, NJ, while working as Associate Dean of the Honors Program in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. From there, he became President and Senior Vice President of DeVry University, Medical Division in Caribbean.
After retirement, Hal moved to Pooler, Georgia in June 2014 with his wife, Veronica. He began studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses in 2016 and symbolized his faith and dedication by water baptism on April 2, 2017, in Orangeburg, SC. He loved and cherished the wealth of information he received while attending Meetings, Assemblies and Conventions. He enjoyed wholesome gatherings with our Friends. Hal also enjoyed his worldwide association with our brothers and sisters.
Hal was a “gentle” man having a mild spirit. He showed a genuine brand of love and interest in people. He, loved children! He always had a story to tell, which made you laugh. He leaves behind: his beloved wife, Veronica McCulloch; as well as his four Stepdaughters: Dana (Nieland) Bynoe, Lauren (JP) Butler, Gloria Lewis and Melanie Lewis, two brothers, Brian McCulloch, and Jeffery McCulloch; one sister: Gloria Staley, and a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
The viewing will be held at Families First Funeral Care Chapel Wednesday, November 1, 2023, from 3Pm to 5PM.
