Harry Culver Bull, 67, passed away in his home surrounded by his family on Sept. 12, 2016, after a long battle with cancer.
He was born in Goshen, N.Y. to the late Harry Culver and Dorothy Blaine Bull. He was the loving husband of Margaret (Peggy) Sandlin Bull.
Harry grew up working on his family’s dairy farm in Hamptonburgh, N.Y. and then in Amenia, N.Y. He moved to Virginia Beach, where he was a manager at Bayville Farms. He was instrumental in bringing back tours at the farm for local school children in the area. He enjoyed sharing the life he loved with the kids.
Harry then started his own business in landscaping, Bull’s Lawn Service, where he met and enjoyed meeting new clients who became friends.
His biggest joy in life was his family. He is survived by his two daughters, Jennifer Diana Riddick and husband, Brent, of Virginia Beach, and Kristy June-Bull Thomas and husband, Mark, of Virginia Beach; five grandchildren, Jordan Carissa Riddick, MacKenzie Leigh Riddick, Meagan Elizabeth Riddick, Emily June Thomas and Kyle Edward Thomas; three sisters, Linda Rogers of Tennessee, Laura Fleming of New York, and Dorothy Sitterly of New York; and by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews and so many people who loved him. He was famous for his advice, whether you wanted it or not, and his beautiful white hair.
