He is buried in Mountnorris churchyard.

Newry and Armagh MLA, Danny Kennedy warmly commended Rev Nigel Reid and the congregation of Mountnorris Presbyterian Church for organising what he described as "very significant and poignant Remembrance events and services last weekend".

Mr Kennedy along with Party colleagues, Cllrs Jim Speers, Gordon Kennedy and David Taylor attended the event and in a joint statement they warmly commended everyone involved in the organisation and participation of the event.

Speaking about the event Danny Kennedy said "the remembrance event to Lance Corporal McCullough was enormously moving and poignant. The participation of family descendants telling the story of the service and sacrifice of Lance Corporal McCullough was very moving, and Rev Nigel Reid is to be particularly congratulated for organising  such a significant event in such detail".

Mr Kennedy and his colleagues also attended the Annual Glenanne Remembrance Service on Sunday evening in Mountnorris Presbyterian Church organised by the Regimental Association of the Ulster Defence Regiment (Armagh Branch) which they also described as "extremely poignant and important ".
