Reverend Leland O. “Neil” Culp, age 81, of Robinson, IL went to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday October 25, 2020 at 1:35 EST surrounded by his loving family at Good Samaritan Hospital, Vincennes IN.

He was born in Hutsonville, IL on September 30, 1939 to Chester Culp and Laura (Kenderdine) Culp. On August 22, 1964 he married Cheryl Grissom, who preceded him in death on November 4, 2011.

Leland was a 1957 graduate of Robinson High School and from there he went to Illinois College where he ran track and also played football. He enjoyed all sports but especially bowling and tennis in later years. One of his favorite things to do was to play cards with his family.

Leland had been a pastor for 50 years as well as being employed at Hershey for several years. He served at the Mt. Tabor Church of God in Napanee, IN and 10 years at the Porterville Congregational Christian Church. He was also a member of the Olive Branch Baptist Church. Upon retiring there were many occasions that Leland was called upon to officiate a funeral service for families in need of a Pastor. He was always more than willing to do so.
