Family: It is with sorrow that we acknowledge the death of your loved one, Mr. James W. Bullock, Jr. I knew him to be a man of his word and one who had great enthusiasm for his convictions. I met Jim almost fifty years ago when he came to work at Life Insurance Company of Georgia. And, though his career path changed companies, our friendship remained steadfast. We shared, overs these years, a healthy friendship with robust and candid conversations. Jim was a totally honest person who would not forsake anyone. I am proud to have been one of his friends, and I will miss him. With utmost condolences, Carl L. and Thomaina C. Tyler Okatie, SC

I will miss Jimmy very much, We have been friends from around 1070 in the Insurance business and both loved to fish and talk fishing. We talked every few weeks and gave each other a fishing report. I always followed his boxing career . They wanted him to go pro in Miami, he said I can’t I’m a senior in high school. He told about all the great fishing trip he and his son had, Metz, Simmons pond Etc. I loved his good since of humor and I will miss him. I couldn’t make the funeral because me and the wife were fighting Covid
