Dr. Bullock was my first and one of my favorite bosses in the field of education when I began my teaching career in 1970 at Simpson Waverly School.. I felt blessed about that. I remember him as always kind, with encouraging words, a gentle teasing tone, that soft southern voice, his perpetual kindness to both children and teachers, and some good advice he shared with me as a new educator...Oh, and the trench coat he seemed to wear a lot!

My deepest condolences to Alan and Charles and their families and all of Jim's relatives and friends. Also, an apology for being late getting this posted.

He worked so well with the students, being both understanding

My name is Dr.Gerald Martin. Dr.Bullock and I worked in the same office together at the Board of Eucation in the 1980's. Dr.Bullock was more than a colleague to me, he was an inspiration of wisdom and character for all that passed through our office. I learned from and appreciated his timely and visionary response to obstacles we encountered. Dr.Bullock made everyone reflect upon their decisions with alternative solutions unseen by the average conclusion. I loved Dr. Bullock as a

Our condolences to Alan and Charles and their families. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. We and Jim's many other friends at Seabury will treasure his memory for a very long time. Jim's life was a blessing for the many lives he touched.

Condolences to the family of Dr. James E. Bullock. Dr. Bullock was my
Vice Principal at Simpson Waverly School over 40 years ago. When I saw
Dr. Bullock's picture, it just warmed my heart and a huge smile appeared
on my face. I can't remember much about my elementary years, but I do
remember this kind, friendly, gentle, wonderful man Dr. Bullock. If I can remember Dr. Bullock from over 40 years ago, he had to be something
special. Lord please

My association with Jim over many years at the Hartford Board of Education brings a smile to my face as I remember our friendly exchanges over grammar issues and numerous other topics. He was truly an old-school gentleman, a kind and considerate friend and an overall first-class human being. I extend sincere sympathy to his sons and their families.
