CDR. Lawrence Edward “Mac” McCullough, US NAVY, 83 of Pinehurst, NC; passed on Saturday, March 4th 2017 at the FirstHealth Hospice House in Pinehurst.

 A visitation will be held 3 to 4PM on Saturday, March 11th 2017 at the Boles Funeral Home in Pinehurst. Afterwards a get together will be held at Dugan’s Pub in Pinehurst. Burial will be at a later date in Arlington National Cemetery.

Mr. McCullough was born September 14, 1933 in New Brighton, PA to the late Lawrence Henry McCullough and Mary Elizabeth (Toben) McCullough. He attended Geneva College and graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1957. Mac earned his Master’s in Electrical Engineering from the Navy Post Graduate School in Monterey, CA in 1963. He was assigned to USS Tarawa (CV-40), USS Whitehall (PCE-856), USS Waccamaw (AO-109) and USS Robison (DDG-12), where he served in Viet Nam. In 1970 he was assigned to and worked on many ground breaking projects integrating naval shipbased weapons systems. He was known to say he was a Systems Engineer before there were System Engineers. In between these assignments, Mac served as an Exchange Professor to the Philippine Military Academy in Baguio, Philippines. Mac retired from the Navy in 1978 after 21 years of active duty and continued working in military research as a Defense Consultant. In 1996 Mac retired and he and Jan moved to Pinehurst. A devoted husband, Mac loved to travel with Jan and share stories of their experiences with friends and family. He had a passion for aviation history, especially World War I and was proud to be a plankowner of The American Air Museum in Britain and of the U.S. Navy Memorial.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Janice Eileen (Massey) McCullough and a sister, Mary Ann Tweddell.
He is survived by a son, Jeff McCullough and wife Beth of Pickerington, OH; three grandchildren, Madeleine McCullough, Andrew McCullough, and Jeffrey McCullough and wife Amanda; and three great-grandchildren, Evalina, Jareth and Kyrian McCullough.

The McCullough family would like to give a heartfelt “Thank You” to the staff of caregivers at the FirstHealth Hospice House for the love and compassion shown towards Mac.
