We Remember

BULLOCK, John Richard

December 14, 1970 — July 27, 2020

Born December 14, 1970, in Kelowna, BC and passed away peacefully on July 27, 2020, in Kelowna. BC, John is survived by his son Oliver and Oliver’s mom Pamela Dickson. He is also survived by his parents Richard and Jacqueline Bullock, and his sister Nicole. John was predeceased by his son Benjamin.

John’s whole world revolved around Oliver and he treasured all the times they spent together. His friends and especially his family will miss him dearly, his smile, his laughter, and especially his kindness. I know that when we see that last evening ray of Okanagan sunshine or feel the first drop of rain in the morning, he will be watching over us.

Sleep tight, my son.

There will be no service at this time. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the BC Children’s Hospital, www.bcchildrens.ca.

    Dear Bullock Family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy over the loss of John. Many of my fondest childhood memories involved John, and he was a good friend to me. I will never forget his wide smile and laugh. I have no idea the number of days we spent together at the golf course, but I can say with certainty that we only once had to go back in the evening to retrieve one of his clubs from a tree. It’s truly unfortunate that we’re not able to gather and grieve together.

  • Mike Brown says:

    My deepest condolences to the Bullock family. I am so sorry for the loss of John.
    I attended KLO Secondary with John and have so many memories of him and the rest of the guys. He was the most generous person and had the best sense of humour. I also remember a few hilarious moments at Gallagher’s canyon during our high school years, but I did not have his golf skills. I wish that I had kept in touch with John and the rest of the crew after leaving the Okanagan,. Looking at old yearbooks and photos reminds me of how much I enjoyed having John as a friend.
    Thinking of you during this difficult time.

    You are in my thoughts, prayers and heart at this incredibly difficult time.

Please know you are loved and in my prayers dear cousins.

    Jacqui, Richard and Nicole- my deepest sympathies on the loss of John. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a kind and gentle soul.

  • Erin Strong says:

    I was lucky to meet John about 12 years ago through my relationship with Todd Strong. John came up with our wedding venue at a ball game and sweet talked Jaqui and Richard to allow us to be married In their beautiful gardens on their farm in kelowna. So many memories of that day and John and the bullock family. John joined our rec slow pitch team as our slingshot shortstop and we found a little joy in the sunshine on the diamond. John adored his son and Oliver who is a doppelgänger to dad. I choose to remember a John on the diamond in the sunshine, his love of the turtleneck sweater and devotion to his son. Rest easy John. You are missed by many. Xxxxxx
