Wayne Culler, BHS 1940? 

Durham CA United States

WAYNE CULLER 5/20/1922-8/13/2015
Born 93 years ago in Eureka, Kansas, Wayne "Barney " Culler followed his older brother "Short" to Burbank, California, where he completed high school. Following high school graduation, Barney joined the U.S. Navy, where he served as a Radio Man in WWII. Barney often reminisced about his experiences in the war and was featured in an article for the Enterprise record giving his account of serving in WWII. Following honorable service to his country, Barney returned to Burbank, CA. where he began a 45 year long career as a Lineman for Pacbell.
Barney was later transferred to Placer County, and then to Butte County, where he resided until his peaceful death, at home in Durham, CA. Throughout his life, Barney especially enjoyed football, his garden and his pipe- and for the past 20 years, rarely missed Thursday morning breakfast with his old work friends.
Barney was preceded in death by his son Jack Culler. Barney is survived by his wife, Rosemarie Culler, his daughter Sandy Braden, stepchildren- Jillian Strawn, Matt Strawn, and Kit Strawn and grandchildren: Charles Merritt, Shari Staley, Dennis Culler and Jacob Strawn, as well as several great grandchildren.
In memory of Barney, charitable donations to the Wounded Warrior Project would be appreciated. A date for a memorial has not yet been set. Arrangements are under the direction of Brusie Funeral Home and online condolences can be sent to the family at Brusie Funeral Home.a
