Charles “Bunky” Bull passed away on Thursday, March 16, 2017, at his home on St. Simons Island at the age of 85.

Bunky was born April 29, 1931, in Newport News, Va., to Virginia and Reese Bull. He attended the University of Tennessee before serving in the United States Army for eight years. He lived most of his life in Atlanta before moving to the area in 1991.

Bunky was a most loving husband and father who was passionate about family, U.S. history, boating and animals. He never met a stranger in his life. Values, morals and honesty were his lifeblood and he taught his family these qualities well. He was a natural salesman, quick-witted and tried to forgive you if you voted for Clinton … either one of them.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his son, Michael West Bull.

Bunky is survived by his wife of 35 years, Belitje Bancker Bull of St. Simons Island; daughter, Lisa Bull Killingsworth and husband Christopher of Chattanooga, Tenn.; granddaughter, Whitney Barnhart of Cumming; grandson, Allen Barnhart (Melissa) of Marietta; and one great-grandson, Preston Scott Lynn of Cumming.

Funeral services will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, in the Chapel of Christ Church Frederica with Father Tom Purdy officiating.

In lieu of customary remembrances, the family wishes memorial contributions to be directed to the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, 4627 US 17, Brunswick, GA 31525.

Arrangements are entrusted to Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home.
