Allan R. Buller Obituary
Buller Allan R. Buller, 95, of Worthington, passed away at home Saturday, March 23, 2013, holding the hand of his wife Mickey and surrounded by other family. He was born December 2, 1917 in Morse, Saskatchewan, Canada to the late Jacob and Stella Buller, who later emigrated to South Dakota and then Michigan. Allan attended grade school in Michigan, graduated from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, and later received an MBA at OSU. He served in the U.S. Army during WWII as a staff sergeant. At 24, and supervising a staff of 8, he accomplished in 1 month the complete stocking of a 1400-bed military field hospital. He married college sweetheart Mickey Walberg in 1942. After the war, they moved to Worthington for Allan's new job at Worthington Foods, where he joined an innovative team of pioneers in the vegetarian food industry. He was CEO of Worthington Foods when he retired in 1985, and continued with the company on their Board of Trustees. He was a longtime member of the Worthington Seventh-day Adventist Church and was instrumental in planning and building both churches and the associated school. Allan was a great accomplisher; he worked hard and played hard. He was a fan of any OSU Buckeye team, and was a lifelong golfer, once playing in a dream foursome with Jack Nicklaus and Bob Hope. He was a founding member of the Worthington Prayer Breakfast, and a member of the Worthington Chamber of Commerce, Lions, Rotary Club, Harding Evans Foundation and many other organizations. He was involved in a wide range of charitable projects, too many to list; all were close to his heart. He was a great traveler; with his wife, he traveled to 50 states and 48 countries on 6 continents. He was very active in hiking, camping, and planning the famous "annual family vacation". He enjoyed carpentry, a skill he learned from his father. He kept an immaculate yard and was proud to win "Yard of the Month". Allan was a devoted and loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Lloyd Buller and sisters Verda Trickett and Bertha Steeger. He is survived by his beloved wife of 70 years, Mickey; daughters, C.B. Buller, Jann Buller (John Curran), Suzy Juarros (Thom); and son, Allan "Al" G. Buller; and grandchildren, Amanda Crump, Sierra Juarros (Chris Arnett), and Savannah Juarros. Friends are invited to visit with family on Thursday, March 28, 2013 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at SCHOEDINGER WORTHINGTON CHAPEL, 6699 N. High St., Worthington.
