Randel Lee Cullum

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

Randel Lee Cullum, 82, of rural Ash Flat, Ark., passed away Oct. 29, in Unity Health White County Medical Center in Searcy, Ark. He was born Aug. 3, 1938, in Monette, Ark., and after graduating from high school proudly served his country in the U.S. Army at two different times; one was in the Korean Conflict.

Randy worked in real estate sales, but his true passions were his grandkids and being Pa-Pa to so many others. He enjoyed working in his yard and playing cards. He was a driving force within the food pantry provided by Ash Flat Church of Christ of which he was a faithful member.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Velma Sharp Cullum; a brother, Gail Cullum; and three sisters: Wanda Zelko, Hazel Liebsch and Bea Alberda.

Survivors include his wife, Sharon Bales Cullum, of the home; a daughter, Tina (Danny) Gibson of rural Ash Flat; two grandchildren, Lucas (Shelbi) and Greyson Gibson; two great-granddaughters, Sutton and Everest Gibson; two brothers, Red and Noble Cullum of Monette; numerous nieces and nephews; and many friends and family including Mallie and the entire Gibson family.

Celebration of Life services were Sunday, Nov. 1, in the Ash Flat Church of Christ with Tommie Boles, Bob Evins and Jim Haney officiating. Burial will be private at a later date. Honorary pallbearers included Danny, Lucas, and Greyson Gibson, Martin Carpenter, Dowl Thomas and J.C. Holland.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the food pantry of Ash Flat Church of Christ, 560 Ash Flat Drive, Ash Flat, AR 72513.

Arrangements were with Tri-County Funeral Home of Highland, Ark.
