Since 2015, Dahlonega Funeral Home has cared for two of my family members. The professionalism, the dignity and the respect given to not only the family, but our loved ones who passed was incredible. On behalf of the family of Tammy Dowdle, and Debra Jones, thank you!
Gary McCullough was a friend and inspiration. He was my classmate at Rockdale County High School. I was the worst player on the basketball team. Gary was the best.
Gary was always an able listener. I say "able" because he paid close attention to you when you talked to him -- and usually had something to say that was both on point and insightful.
He was one of the best athletes I ever met. Once, when during recess it started raining, everyone was called into the gymnasium. It was packed with 8th graders through 12th graders. Gary took a basketball and started dribbling. It seemed that everyone took a try at taking the ball away from him -- several at a time. Gary dribbled, dribbled, and dribbled. No one succeeded.
It did not surprise me that after retirement, Gary went into public service and was elected Mayor of Dahlonega. Who can forget those Saturday music galas around the courthouse organized by Gary. He drew people from all over the place -- including Rockdale County and a couple of us from Virginia.
We will miss you, Gary McCullough. So will your wonderful wife and extended family. So will your community. You had an important impact on so many lives, Gary McCullough. It has been an honor to call you my friend.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
