William "Bill" McCullough

William “Bill” George McCullough, longtime Mexia businessman and civic leader, passed away at his home on December 1, 2020 at the age of 71.  Bill was born April 26, 1949 in Mexia, Texas to V. A. and Sophie Busby McCullough.  He graduated from Mexia High School, Class of 1967, where he was an outstanding athlete, well though of by his classmates, and voted “Most Handsome” his senior year.  Continuing his education, he received his BBA from Stephen F. Austin in 1971 where he was also a member of the Theta Chi Fraternity.

Prior to moving back to Mexia and joining his father in the Mexia Butane business, Bill worked in Houston and College Station for GMAC.  He has been owner of, what is now, Propane Energy for many years.  Bill has been actively involved as a civic leader in numerous organizations in Mexia.  He has served on the Mexia City Council, Mayor of Mexia, a member of the Board of Directors of Incommons Bank, President of the Mexia Chamber of Commerce, on the Board of General Mexia Hospital,  Mexia Library Board, and a  District Director of Texas LP Gas Association.  He was a longtime active member, and Sunday school teacher of the First Baptist Church.

Although Bill had many outside interest and activities, none were more important than his time with his family.  He loved his family and made sure their needs were met.  Whatever activities his children were participating in, he was there to support them.  However, becoming a grandfather was the highlight of his life, his grandchildren were his pride and joy.  He also enjoyed spending some of his spare time on the golf course; he was an avid golfer but enjoyed all sports.

Bill was a true Christian, an honest man, always friendly, and treated everyone the way he wanted to be treated.

He was preceded in death by his parents, V. A. and Sophie McCullough.

Bill is survived by his wife of 47 years, Audrey Giddens McCullough; children, Scott McCullough and wife, Sarah of Montreal, Canada and Courtney Spath and husband, Bobby of Mexia; grandchildren, Maxine McCullough, Spike, Kennedy, Duke, Boomer, Dixie, Maverick, Addison, and Dollie Spath; and sisters, Gail Smith and husband, Jerry and Carolyn Goodman and husband, Wally.
