Scott Wilmer Cullum

July 2, 1969 — April 17, 2023

Scott Wilmer Cullum of Cheverly, Maryland, beloved husband and father, passed away on April 17, 2023 at the age of 53. Scott was born in Bel Air, Maryland to Roland “Neil” and Mattie (Vencill) Cullum. He is survived by his wife, Mary “Kelly” (Niewenhous) Cullum, children, Sierra and Rory Cullum, mother, Mattie Cullum, brothers, Greg Cullum (Carol), Brian Cullum (Dimitra) and David Cullum (Alexandra), and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.


After obtaining his Master's Degree in information security, Scott joined the Department of State and served for 18 years as a Foreign Service Officer, working at U.S. embassies in various countries and in Washington, D.C. Curious about the world, Scott loved to explore with his family and especially enjoyed sampling the food wherever he went. Always one to make the best of any situation, he was known as a pizza chef for friends and colleagues at several posts where there was no pizza to be found. Whether it was fishing off the coast of West Africa, hanging out with friends in a park in Ashgabat, riding his dirt bike along the coast in Havana, searching for waterfalls all over Azerbaijan, or watching the sun set over the Dead Sea, he lived life to the fullest. Scott gave of his time generously to help colleagues and loved serving his country. He cherished most his time spent with family watching his kids and nieces and nephews grow up.


In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675.
