Lifetime resident of Beechview passed away on November 23, at the age of 60 surrounded with so much love by “his girls”.
Eddie was born on Monday, November 14, 1960 to John and Marcella McCullough named after his twin brothers who passed away, Edward and Michael.
Eddie was the baby of the family, grew up in and made a life for his family in the Beechview neighborhood of Pittsburgh. He was a little man in stature with a larger than life presence known and loved by all. He was not afraid of hard work, making a living from roofing, landscaping, laboring, had a nice run as a stagehand for many bands and artists including Whitesnake and Janet Jackson (oh, the stories from that!) and we can’t forget his cementing and masonry skills were extraordinary.
He loved his music loud, his beers cold, his shots coming and his flannels layered. The man’s love for flannels was probably his trademark. It’s a 90 degree day in Pittsburgh? You could catch Eddie front porch sitting with his flannels on. He was a die hard Steelers fan even up until his last day where he was able to watch the Steelers take a win over the Jags putting them at 10-0. The day before he passed, as he was too weak to care for himself and his girls were helping him- he was strong enough to say, “make sure you put a Steelers shirt on me!”
He had a great love for all of his dogs, cooking and bullshitting with anyone willing to listen. He loved Sunday, holiday and birthday dinners with family, weekend trips to the mountains and hunting with his brother and absolutely loved every chance he got to hang out with his nephew, Mike, shooting the shit and listening to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
What he did not like was to be bothered when watching the Young & the Restless, don’t even mention an onion around him, and for the love of everything holy, NEVER forget the man’s pickles!
Eddie is survived by his devoted wife of 37 years, Mona, his 3 pain in the asses (daughters) Tracey, Shannon, and Ashley, Grandchildren (Pappy’s Gang) Jordan, Trinity, Dayton, Timmy, and Ashlynn, his brother John, sisters Mary and Patti and many kick ass nieces and nephews.
He will be sorely missed forever.
“To the moon, Alice!”
Wearing Steelers attire or a flannel in his memory would be both acceptable and appreciated.
