Obituary of John Andrew Bulldis

John Bulldis, son of Sam and Hazel Bulldis, passed on 2 April

2018 from pneumonia in Olympia. John is survived by his

children with his first wife Catherine: Deborah, Cynthia, Steven(Lois), Nick(Jackie),Mike, and

John(Maryann). He is also survived by brothers

George and Jim. He was a shellfish farmer at National Fish and

Oyster, a family owned business, most of his life. John once

owned Veteran's Garage in Lakewood, served in the National

Guard and worked at Fick Foundry for a time. He loved baseball

and played local minor league ball in the 60's and 70's. Whether

league bowling or playing a game of pool, he enjoyed being with

friends. As John neared retirement, he battled with cancer and

won. While he slowed down a bit, he moved forward on his life

journey with companion Judy Ray. Recovery from cancer allowed

John retirement years to enjoy life events with his children and

many grandchildren. He became involved with Judy's family:

Lisa, Jenni(Keith), Jeff(Yvonne), and their children. And,

retirement brought opportunities for travel, gardening on the bay,

Sea Hawks, Mariners and spending a lot of time at the Casino. We

will all miss his sense of humor, concern for others, and love of

life. A grave side service at Old Tacoma Cemetery on April 21 at
