It is with sadness that we advise the loss of Donald McCullough, of the Peel Forest Rural Fire Brigade. Don was tragically killed in a farm accident on Saturday 6 July 2019.

Donald was also a long serving member of the Rangitata Rural Fire Team and held the position of Deputy Rural Fire Force Controller at Rangitata, prior to the family shifting to the Mayfield district seven years ago.

Donald served his community well in his firefighter role, but was also very active and supportive in other community and farming groups in the district.

Our deepest sympathy is extended to his wife, Julie, and family Aaron, Sonya and Callum, and families.

A service to celebrate Donald’s life will be held at the Alpine Energy Stadium, Ferguson Drive, Temuka, on Friday 12 July at 1.30pm.
