Celebrating the life of
James Francis Cullina, Jr.
March 17, 1961 - August 12, 2022
James Francis Cullina, Jr., 61, passed away Friday, August 12 after a short illness and now resides in Heaven with his wife, the love of his life, Rimma. James was born on Saint Patrick’s Day 1961 in Fort Huachuca Arizona to James Francis, Sr. and Myrna Foshee Cullina.
James is preceded in death by his wife Rimma Ivragimova Cullina of Russia, his mother Myrna Cullina of Savannah, his sisters Kitty Risher and Peggy Sims of Dothan Alabama, and his brother Sean Cullina of Pinckard Alabama.
He is survived by his father James Francis Cullina, Sr. of Madison Alabama, his sisters Terri Cullina of Tybee Island Georgia, Beth Cullina of Harvest Alabama, and Ann Hanks of Richmond Hill Georgia, and by many nieces and nephews. James was a faithful parishioner of Saint James the Less Catholic Church, to which remembrances may be made.
So sorry to hear of James' passing. We shared many fun times growing up in Mayfair as kids. He was always a good guy. We both moved away, and lost touch, until recent years, when we reconnected at Saint James. We were always glad to see each other and catch up. Our memories of James will always bring a smile. May he Rest In Peace.

James will be very much missed. As adults, we shared several Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday dinners together. He was kind, upbeat, gentle, and genuinely nice. I always looked forward to seeing him. Rest in peace, James.

We will miss James! He always sat at the back of the church at 9am mass. He would give me a hug or fist bump whenever I passed him. He always asked us how we were doing. Just a sweet guy. We send our condolences to his family. Perpetual light shine upon him!

We were sorry to hear of James' death. He certainly fought the good fight in this life. Like others have said, he was kind, cheerful, and a faithful parishioner of St James Catholic Church We were in school together at St James and were happy to meet up again in recent years. RIP, James.

I was shocked today to hear of James’ passing. We’ve just come back to Savannah and as I always have, I looked for him at the front end at Publix. He was such a nice man, and had a good sense of humor. He never let me leave the store without his help and was always interested to hear how life was treating me. I know that he loved his wife and it is comforting to know that he is with her. My prayers of peace go to his family, and may he rest easy in heaven.
