Robert L. "Bob" Bullock

   Robert L. “Bob” Bullock, 61, of Williamsburg, Indiana, passed away on October 5, 2019 at the Dayton VA Hospice Center after a hard-fought battle with Melanoma. Bob was born on December 18, 1957 in Richmond, Indiana to O.D. Bullock and the late Phyllis Jean Kohr Suthard.
   Bob attended Northeastern and Richmond Schools, and graduated from Richmond High School in 1976. Bob served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1977-1980, where he served as a Hospital Corpsman at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. After being honorably discharged, he came home to start a family. He worked at Wayne Works and then as a pest control technician for Earlywine Pest Control for nearly 25 years, where he was widely known as “Bug Bob.” He most recently worked for the City of Richmond at the Middlefork Reservoir Service Center, where he enjoyed the beautiful morning view, sharing coffee with the regular visitors, and watching the bald eagles soar over the water. Bob was a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Reds, and IU basketball. He loved to play golf and spend time outdoors.
   Bob will be so deeply missed by his daughter and son-in-law, Ashley and John Green; parents, O.D. and Bev Bullock; sisters, Cathy Chamberlin and Amy (Kevin) Fouche; his best little buddy, Jack; aunts; uncle; nieces; nephews; cousins; other extended family; and many friends.

   Bob’s life will be celebrated at 6:00 pm on Friday, October 11 at the Smith-McQuiston & Webster Funeral Home, 321 US 27 South, Fountain City, Indiana. Please come prepared to pay tribute to Bob’s gift for gab by sharing one of your own Bob stories. Following the service, the Wayne County Honor Guard will conduct military rites.

My earliest memory of Bobby was in his home on hwy 38. Our parents were playing cards. We would be playing basketball with a rolled up sock and coat hanger as a goal. He had a 45 record by Boxtops, The Letter. This song fit his low, gravelly voice perfectly! We played the crap out of that song. I miss you man!

Bob and Mike were the brothers I never had. The amazing times we had, starting in jr.high,will be the thoughts I remember for the rest of my life. Our Lord took these two much too early

I was a friend of Bob's. We met in the military, way back in 1977 in Virginia. He was always a funny guy, with a hint on mischief. (All good-natured!) I haven't seen him in 38 years, but will still miss him. I'm sorry I was unable to connect with him, but I wish you Godspeed my friend. Fair Winds, and Following Seas.
