David F. Bullock Obituary
David F. Bullock

David F. Bullock, age 68, of Claymont, DE, passed away peacefully at home on February 1, 2016, surrounded by his family.

David was a 1965 graduate of Claymont High School, where he was an avid football player and wrestler. He retired as Chief Operator from Sun Oil Refinery in 2001 after 35 years of dedicated service. David proudly served his country in the US Army and was a Vietnam Veteran.

David's children and grandchildren were the center of his world. He devoted his life to being the very best father and grandfather he could be. He loved spending long, quiet days fishing with his daughter, Dawn, in Rock Hall, MD, laughing with his kids and playing with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed attending wrestling matches, watching football and having lunch around town with his favorite waitresses. More than anything else, he loved spending time with his family and friends. His goofy laugh and dry sense of humor will be forever missed.

David is predeceased by his parents, Frederick and Virginia Bullock.

David is survived by his daughter, Dawn Bullock Groover (Ronald) of Wilmington, DE; daughter, Cynthia Bullock of Wilmington, DE; son, Christopher Bullock of Claymont, DE; grandchildren, Shalyssa, Joey, Julia, Makayla; and great-grandaughter, Catalayah. He is also survived by his 3 brothers, Thomas Bullock (Crystal), Gary Bullock and Jeffrey Bullock (Susan); and a host of loving nieces, nephews and lifelong friends.

Friends may visit with the family Monday, February 8, 2016 from 11am to 1pm at Gebhart Funeral Home, 3401 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, DE, where a service will begin at 1pm. Burial will follow in Silverbrook Cemetery, Wilmington, DE.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to: A.I. duPont Children's Hospital [email protected] and The B+ Foundation
