He was born on April 4, 1940 in the small rural community of Glentana, Montana, the son of the late Otto Clyde and Leona Pearl (Reed) Bulock.

He continued to serve his country working in the public sector of the government, beginning with his years as a Civil Services Agent and ending his career with the United States Army Corps of Engineers. In addition to the love Mr. Bulock had for his country and God, was the love he had for family and friends. His love for family stemmed from growing up with loving parents, grandparents and his many siblings under the big blue sky of Montana. In his younger years, he loved to hunt, fish and go camping. He loved the holidays and country music! He was loved by many and loved many in return.
