Funeral Arrangements Set for Harmony Brothers Killed in Crash

Memorial contributions may be made in honor of Liam Bintrim, 3, Declan McCullough, almost 1, to Animal Friends or the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Funeral arrangements have been set for the two young brothers from Harmony killed in a tragic car accident during icy road conditions Wednesday in Connoquenessing.

According to the online obituary, Liam Bintrim, 3, loved to splash in the water with his younger brother, Declan McCullough, who would have turned 1 Friday.

“He absolutely loved sharing baths with his younger brother, Declan, they were little water boys,” the obituary on the Boylan Funeral Home website said.

A funeral ceremony for both boys will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 at St. Peter’s Reformed Church in Zelienople. Following the ceremony, the family will hold a fellowship luncheon at the Zion Lutheran Church in Harmony, the obituary said.

The boys will be laid to rest together at Grace Church Cemetery in Harmony.

The son of William Hall, of Renfrew, and Elisabeth McCullough, of Harmony, Liam loved being with his brothers and sisters. He also loved animals, his teachers and his friends at school. He had adopted his own cat, Monday, from Animal Friends.

“He was an independent and fearless spirit whose playfulness carried into wrestling, tackling and chasing his brothers and sisters,” the obituary said.

Declan was the son of McCullough and her husband Jason McCullough.

With his blue eyes and his smile a reflection of his father, Declan loved climbing and playing the drums, the obituary said.

“Declan was truly a lovable, happy baby boy who just began to sprout his wings as he recently began to walk, wave and blow kisses,” the obituary said.

Numerous relatives, including three siblings, survive the boys.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Liam and Declan’s honor to Animal Friends, 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 or the Make-a-Wish Foundation, 707 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.
