Bullock, Harold ‘Hank’ Edward 87 Feb. 05, 1927 Aug. 11, 2014 Hank Bullock passed away unexpectedly Aug. 11, 2014, surrounded by his family. He was born in Corning, Iowa, one of four boys, and lived there until he moved to San Diego with his family in 1935. After high school, he entered the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in the Philippines. He married Barbara Campbell in 1949, and they had two children, Mike and Chris. The family then moved to Oregon in 1958, and Hank joined a new business called Tektronix. He worked there for 25 years as a tool and die model maker. In 1975, he married Judy Hanson, and was lucky enough to be stepfather to four more girls, Vickey, Della, Wanda and Lori. In retirement, Hank restored antique airplanes. Some of the parts were impossible to find, so Hank would just create the needed part on his die machines. He was very talented! He restored a British Auster observation plane from WWII and flew it to many antique airplane shows all over the country. He won numerous awards for his plane. It is permanently housed at the Evergreen Air Museum in McMinnville. Hank is survived by his beloved wife, Judy; children and stepchildren; and many, many grandchildren; and even great-grandchildren. He was a wonderful, kind and loving man who will be dearly missed. However, he is now reunited with his three brothers who went before him and many other friends. Hank will be interred in Willamette National Cemetery with the words “Gone Flying.”
