My father, Owen Osgatharp, knew Mr. McCullough from Servel and Whirlpool, your Dad in the engineering department and Dad in the Time Study and later in the EI group. Dad remembers Mr. McCullough fondly. Dad moved to the Fort Smith plant in the 70's. Dad wanted to express his sincere sympathy to the family.
