Gregory S. McCullough

April 17, 1961 — September 25, 2023

Gregory S. McCullough, 62, of St. Louis, MO, entered into his eternal home early Monday morning, September 25th, 2023. His final days and nights were spent in the company of his loving wife Gigi of 37 years, son Austin and daughter-in-law Andrea, and granddaughter Juniper. They spent many hours reminiscing, laughing, and crying. In the end, Greg was ready to meet his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Greg was born in Wichita, Kansas and was raised in McPherson, Kansas. He graduated from McPherson high School and continued on to Kansas State University where he received his masters in business administration.

Greg fought long and hard against cancer. He participated in many cancer trials to advance research in hopes of helping those who will follow in this journey behind him. To anyone who knows Greg personally this should come as no surprise. His life was spent serving the communities that he belonged to. He was an incredible man with a long legacy of loving others.

Greg started his life of service at an early age working as a lifeguard and swimming instructor at McPherson City pool. He earned his eagle scout award fixing up rural McPherson county cemeteries that were in disrepair. He spent years working with Red Cross. There, he participated in everything from donating blood to creating disaster preparedness plans, and finally filling the role of McPherson County Red Cross chapter president. He enjoyed coaching many McPherson recreation league teams and getting to mentor the children who were on them. He served as McPherson County All Schools Day committee chairman, Leadership McPherson board chairman, McPherson Area Human Resources Professionals president and board member, McPherson Chamber of Commerce president and board member, Kansas Insurance Education Foundation board member, Wichita CPCU chapter president, and received the standard setter award for the Wichita chapter of the CPCU society.

Greg worked at Farmers Alliance Insurance Company in several different capacities for 32 years. He kept in touch with many of the employees and retirees he worked with as vice president of human resources. He continued to send notes of encouragement and congratulations on their accomplishments until the very end. After moving from McPherson, Greg continued his life of service as human resources director for the city of Warrensburg, MO for 7 years. There he enjoyed caring for the needs of the city’s employees. He prayed for the police officers and firefighters when they went out on a call and worried about the street department workers during heavy snows or the heat of summer. Once again, he continued to stay in touch with and encourage those he worked with up until the very end. He continued to be involved as a Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce board member and Whiteman Air Force Base community council member. Greg and Gigi enjoyed adopting Air Force families and their children as their extended family.

Greg was a man of integrity and service because of his faith. He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, the Brethren Church, Grace Bible Church, New Hope Evangelical Church, and the First Baptist Church. He was an active member and teacher in each church, helping to mentor and teach young men and newly married couples. He loved working with preschoolers through the elderly.

Greg is survived by his wife, Gigi, son, Austin, daughter-in-law, Andrea, granddaughter, Juniper, his stepfather and stepmother, Harlan and Judy Doering, half-brother Owen McCullough, half-sister AJ Servantez, his father and mother-in-law, Carl and Liz Anderson, sister and brother-in-law, Doug and Karla Schroeder, niece, Kiley, and nephew-in-law, Brian Stevenson, niece, Lindsey, and nephew-in-law, Luke Hirschler, many cousins, and countless friends.

He was proceeded in death by his mother, Janice Doering, father, Franklin McCullough, and grandmother, Amelia Boyce.

Greg enjoyed visiting with friends and family, playing cards and board games, watching football, fishing, and storm chasing with his cousins. We all miss him so and anxiously await when we will see him in eternity soon!

Due to Greg’s abundant life of service, it would be impossible to hold a memorial service that would allow for the attendance of all those whose lives were touched by him. A private, immediate family celebration and scattering of ashes will be held at a later date. In lieu of attendance at a memorial ceremony or flowers, the family has asked that memorial donations be given to the following service-minded non-profits in honor of Greg:
