How Did We Do?

Kenneth Eugene Bullo passed away on August 14, 2011. He was survived by his daughter, Janessa Laiya (Bullo) Aarsvold, son-in-law Theodore Amos Aarsvold, Granddaughter Brielle Lizabeth Wiggins, his sister, two brothers and many nieces and nephews.

Ken was born on January 24, 1950 to George Jonathan Bullo and Alice Josephine Kreider. He grew up with his siblings, George Bullo, Sr., Clyde Bullo, and Linda (Bullo) Dunlap in Kirkland, Washington. Ken had a great love of music. It always made him at peace. He had the voice of an angel. Every Christmas he and his siblings would get together and sing carols. It was his favorite time of year. Ken loved to play the guitar, acoustic and electric and could play anything. His favorite music was blues and jazz. While in school, he would occasionally jam at The Bandwagon in Crossroads with classmates Ann & Nancy Wilson and their band White Sail before they moved to California and formed the band Heart. He loved to have jam sessions with other bands and play with other friends and musicians at his home.

Ken proudly served is country in the United States Marine Corps. Shortly after his service he married his first wife, Lizabeth (Hasson) Tyack with whom he had his daughter, Janessa. Ken developed a love for fitness and bodybuilding. He loved working out at Ironworks Gym in Bellevue among others. He was always in great shape and loved giving health and training tips. Ken graduated from ITT Tech and shortly after began his 16 year career at The Boeing Company.

Ken had many hobbies and interests. In addition to music and weightlifting, he had a passion for cars; especially Corvettes. The Corvette was his favorite car and he always owned one. He loved to rebuild and work on cars. He also loved building RC cars and radios.

Ken was very enthusiastic when it came to electronics; either stereo equipment for his home or vehicle. He always wanted the newest and loudest item available and loved surround sound. Every Friday was movie and pizza night; a very fond memory growing up. One of his favorite movies to show off the stereo was always Top Gun.

He loved the outdoors. If he could live outside under the stars, he would have. He loved the sunshine; Eastern Washington and the ocean were his favorite places to visit.

Ken was a loving father, grandfather and a loyal friend. He always saw the best in people and accepted a person for who they were. He had so much love to give, and not enough time to give it. He will be greatly missed. A life cut short, but will continue to live on in our hearts forever.

Psalm 38
A psalm of David. A petition.

LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me.

Because of your wrath there is no health in my body, my bones have no soundness because of my sin.

My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.
My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly.
I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning.

My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body. I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart.

All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you. My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes. My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away.

Those who seek my life set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they plot deception. I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear, like a mute, who cannot open his mouth; I have become like a man who does not hear, whose mouth can offer no reply.

I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O lord my God. For I said, "Do not let them gloat or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips".

For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me. I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin. Many are those who are my vigorous enemies; those who hate me without reason are numerous. Those who repay my good with evil slander me when I pursue what is good.

O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God. Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior.

I have many fond memories of my life and marriage to Ken between the years of 1980 and 1989. I loved being a part of such a musical family and I loved being a stepmother to Janessa during her "little girl" years. My heart goes out to her and the rest of the clan during this time of sorrow. Ken was much too young to leave us all but I'm sure his legacy will live on in his daughter and grand daughter. My thoughts will be with the family on Friday, unfortunately I will be unable to attend the services but my heart will be with you all that day. God be with you and may he rest in peace.

I have many fond memories of my father. What I remember the most is his love for music which he always shared with me. I loved listening to him play his guitar and sing. His mood determined what type of music he would listen to. One of his favorite songs was "Sleepwalk" by Larry Carlton. That song always put him at peace and to this day whenever I hear it, I think of him. He had MANY favorite songs, but that one reminds me of him the most. Just as whenever I see a Corvette or any muscle car, I think of my father. If it was loud or fast, he loved it and had to have it.

His favorite place in the world was the beach; especially the ocean. He loved the sunshine, but could go to the ocean rain or shine. Something about the sound of the crashing waves made all of his pain and troubles disappear. We would hop in the vette with the t-tops out, drive to the ocean and fly kites just for the day. He was very spontaneous. If the weather wasn't up to par around here which it rarely is, he would say, "want to head to Vantage for the weekend?" Just like that. I will never forget the time it was so windy that our tent actually blew away while he was trying to pitch it. I will never forget watching him chase after it; it was hilarious watching a 250lb bodybuilder running in the dark after a tent. We just rented a motel room that weekend. It was pretty funny.

It's moments like those that I cherish and will hold onto forever. I am happy I can share these memories with Brielle; his granddaughter who I am blessed he had the honor to know. I have so many more memories to share with her and will gladly do so with her or anyone who wishes to hear them.

One of my father's favorite poems was Footprints in the Sand....

Dad, I remember you always speaking those words to me when I was troubled or lost, now I speak them to you. Please know how much I love you and how very much I miss you. Thank you for all the memories and know you will always hold a special place in my heart. You can be at peace now Dad.
