It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Dr. Frederick George Bullock on Wednesday, December 25, 2019. Born in Saint John, New Brunswick on July 18, 1932 to the late Gaile and Bessie (neé Thomas) Bullock.
He will be dearly missed by his wife of 53 years, Renate (neé Frank); his three sons, Fred (Heather) of Hampton, NB, James (Patricia) of Edmonton, AB and Dan (April Fullarton) of Boiestown, NB; as well as his grandchildren Ana, Bella, Katherine and William. Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his infant brother, Roy Bullock, and his brother-in-law, Bill Jemmett. He is survived by his sister, Nancy Jemmett.
Fred was raised on a dairy farm on the Boar’s Head Road in Saint John - now the site of Millidgeville North High School. He attended Saint John High and graduated from Dalhousie University in 1958. Fred had an active dental practice on Charlotte and Waterloo Streets in Saint John from 1959 to 1985 when he moved his practice to Boiestown. He retired in 1994. He made his first trip to the Miramichi River in 1963 and enjoyed many river trips from Half Moon to Boiestown, and fishing and hunting trips to Rocky Bend before purchasing a river property in Boiestown in 1973, the place he always referred to as “Heaven on Earth”. He was well known in the Saint John harness racing community from the1960s to the 1980s, owning and breeding several standard bred horses during that time. He loved gardening, was an avid reader, and was always up for a lively discussion about the latest political news.
The family wishes to express their deep appreciation to the New Brunswick Extramural Program and the exceptional nurses, doctors and staff of the Palliative Care Unit of the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital, We would also like to thank Father Neil Osiowy and the many friends who called and stopped by during his illness, which gave great comfort to both Fred and Renate.
There will be no visitation, however, a funeral service will be held at St. James the Greater Anglican Church, 6959 Route 8, Ludlow, NB on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at 1 pm. Donations in memory may be made to the Upper Miramichi Fire Department, your local SPCA, or a charity of your choice. Arrangements have been entrusted to Miramichi Valley Chapel.
