NORFOLK – Mr. Gary W. Bullock, 57, of 137 Brothers Road, passed away Sunday morning, April 13, 2014 at Fletcher-Allen Health Center after being taken there from Massena Memorial Hospital on Saturday.
Gary was born September 11, 1956 in Massena, the son of the late Harry J. and Jane LaDue Bullock. He attended Norwood-Norfolk Central School and graduated from Canton High School and attended BOCES for auto technician. Gary honorably served his country in the US Army. On December 12, 1975, he married Beth A. Bentley at the Norfolk Wesleyan Church with Rev. Granger, officiating.
Gary has been an auto technician his entire working career, most recently at Boutot Auto Sales in Massena. He had worked for various other agencies in the area. Gary had a great love for animals and enjoyed tinkering and puttering around the yard. He mostly just loved being outdoors doing or working on something. Perhaps his greatest enjoyment was the time he spent with his family, especially his grandchildren.
