Robert Douglas McCully, of Petitcodiac, NB, age 85, died on Thursday, January 11th at the George Dumont Hospital.

After serving in the Armed Forces for 22 years Bobby moved to Petitcodiac, after realizing that retirement wasn’t for him he quickly became well known in our community and was a jack of all trades over the years, from picking up bottles, being the dog constable, janitorial services, and mowing lawns in which brought him to opening his own lawn mowing business in 1980 which is still successfully owned and operated by his son Danny. Now Bobby was never one who was good at sitting still so he then opened the Petty Redemption Center in 2007. Bobby was always up for a beer and a game of poker, he was able to make so many memories over the years. Some of his favourite memories involved a Molson Canadian in his hand, a dog by his side, country music, and being outside. He loved fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, four wheeling, and long drives with his wife.

Bobby is survived by his wife of 16 years, Charlene McCully; his son, Marshall McCully (Lorna); his daughter, Christine Anderson (Mark); his twin sons, Dennis McCully (Lori) and Danny McCully (Sherry); his step son, Jamie Kirby; step daughters, Angela Rochford (Cory) and Karen Kirby (Steve).
