ROY ARTHUR JAMES
May 4, 1942 – January 27, 2021
In loving memory of Roy Arthur James McCulligh who passed away January 27, 2021. Dear son of Wesley and Bernice McCulligh (predeceased). Husband to Marilyn (predeceased). Brother of Norman (Muriel predeceased) and Dougal (predeceased) (Shirley). Loving father of Arthur James McCulligh (predeceased) (Wanda), Tracy Bailey (Mike), Karen Buchanan (Kirby) and Jo-Ann Bray (Mike). Grandfather of Sydney Burton, Mitchell (Kelsey), Scott Bailey, Sharlotte, William (Lexi), Katherine Buchanan (Sheldon), Curtis (Aileen), Austin Moir, Wyatt, Matthew and Hayley-Rose Bray. Great-grandfather of Everett Gee and Kingsley Bailey. Roy was born and raised on Manitoulin Island, but also lived in Sault Ste. Marie and Iron Bridge. He was a successful business man in the oil furnace industry, talented and accomplished in his career. Proud that his son Jamie and grandson Scott followed in the same career. Roy enjoyed fishing with family and friends and providing for his family. Being on the lake was his piece of heaven. Roy enjoyed his visits with special friends at Little Current Place. He spent many hours reminiscing with family and friends about “remember whens” and ancestry. He held his wife Marilyn and children very close to his heart and they were never far from his mind. A private family graveside service will be held in the spring or summer of 2021 in Hilly Grove Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, you may donate puzzles to the Little Current Place Common Room so that many others may reminisce as Roy has.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
For Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
