With loved ones by his side, Robert Lewis Bullock (Bobby) peacefully went to live with his Heavenly Father on May 16, 2019.

Growing up in a Navy family, Bobby fell in love with the beauty of the coast. After graduating from Northern High School in Durham, NC., he moved to Wilmington, NC to attend school and decided to make Wilmington his home. He was a pressman with the Star News for over 23 years.

One of his favorite hobbies was taking beautiful photographs of the NC coast, especially the Outer Banks. He liked to read books by Grisham, Conroy and about sports and music. He was a music lover from Beatles to Groban. He enjoyed playing baseball, basketball, tennis, golf and softball where he made lasting friendships. Bobby had a gift of being able to meet and talk to people. He will always be remembered for his friendship, kindness, determination and optimistic spirit. Bobby’s family and friends are kind, loving and devoted to Bobby. He has a wonderful church family at Sunset Park Baptist Church.

The family would like to thank Dr. Brian Webster and staff, Dr. Joshua Bowman and staff, WellCare, Lower Cape Fear Hospice and those at the Medical College of Virginia.
