Bill was born February 6, 1934, in Cleveland, Ohio and entered his heavenly home October 3, 2023, in Minden, Louisiana. Bill proudly served his country during the Korean War, when he was stationed with the U.S. Army in Alaska. When he returned to Ohio to finish his college degree, he met his future wife Norma Ryan at Ohio University in Athens. They married in 1962 and eventually moved their family to Louisiana where Bill was the Personnel Manager at the Louisiana Army Ammunition Plant outside of Minden. Bill and Norma were a part of the congregation at Lakeview Methodist Church for over forty years.
Bill was an avid baseball fan, as well as a Civil War historian. As one of six children, Bill had an enduring love and appreciation for working with children, and even after his retirement he worked with Holy Angels in Shreveport, volunteered with the Shreveport Job Corps, and taught as a substitute at Richardson Elementary and Lakeview Preschool. Bill’s children and grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he was always ready to help with anything they needed, whether that was moving them across the country or stepping in to cover emergency child-care! Bill’s family was the most important thing to him, and he will live in their hearts forever.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents, William and Jenny Bullock and siblings Genevieve Showalter, June Stoch, Al Bullock, and Merrill Bullock.
He is survived by his wife, Norma Ryan Bullock of Minden; son, William Jay Bullock of Coppell, TX; daughters, Cynthia and husband Dee Raibourn, III, of Irving, TX, and Diana Peterson of Grapevine, TX; sister, Georgia Smartt of Medina, OH; grandchildren, Kendall Leigh Dunn of Austin, TX, Reagan Nicole Dunn of Dallas, TX, and Dee Raibourn, IV, of Irving, TX, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Lakeview Methodist Church or UCAP.
