Default Jim Bullock passed away from Covid

His wife called left me a message. He passed away two days ago.
He got Covid last week. And I just talked to him on the 14th. Really sad. We are losing some really good folks to this damn virus.
They are not sure what is going to happen with the carb business. We need to give the family some time; and of course our thoughts and prayers.

I have had one of his rebuilt Zeniths. He was a master!

He will be missed by many.

I'm also sorry to hear this.

Jim was a square shooter, a one-of-a-kind, very honest and generous man. I bought a couple of his rebuilds and sent him one to rebuild. Talking with him on the phone you could tell he was a regular Joe, heck of a nice guy

We will miss his talents.

We are two years into a five year cycle.
Our state just hit over %92 double vaxed and rising.
We were at a coffee shop yesterday and there were a couple of hippies protesting their right to drink bleach or something as a cure. You needed a vax certificate to get into the coffee shop.
They didn't get much traction for some reason...

Great guy. I really enjoyed the phone conversations we had although we never met in person. Just this morning I was thinking about calling him. He will be missed.
