Obituary for LTC John P. Bulger, USA Ret.

LTC John P. Bulger, USA Ret., age 79, of Bel Air, MD passed away on February 12, 2018 at the Senator Bob Hooper House in Forest Hill, MD. Born in New York City, NY, he was the son of Dr. Craig P. and Dr. Dorothy (Lang) Bulger. He graduated from the University of Vermont with his Bachelors and Master's Degree in Chemistry, and also received his MBA from Florida Institute of Technology. After graduation from UVM he received his commission in the US Army serving throughout the world and saw combat during the Vietnam War. John retired from the Army in 1983 attaining the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Then he worked as a defense contractor and consultant with SAIC until his ultimate retirement in 2003.

His passions in retirement were his retrievers and training them for work in the field. He enjoyed the outdoors and had a particular fondness for Vermont, where he spent much of his time growing up, and Camden, South Carolina, where he built a farm to train dogs with his friends.

He was a member of Bel Air United Methodist Church and volunteered with the Boys Scouts of America as a leader for 25 years. He was also a member of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America, as well as many other breed and training clubs.

Mr. Bulger is survived by his wife of 56 years, Sandra H. Bulger; daughter, Gail (David) Vanderbeek of Fallston; son, Greg (Stephanie) Bulger of Bear, DE; five grandsons, SSG Evan (Leanne) Bulger, Ryan Bulger, Tyler Bulger, Spencer Vanderbeek and Eric Vanderbeek; three granddaughters, Patricia Bulger, Maria Bulger and Laura Vanderbeek; great-grandsons, Alan & Calvin Bulger; and his beloved Flat Coats.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Craig Bulger.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Flat-Coated Retriever Foundation, 128 Glendale Dr., Burlington, IA 52601 or to EOD Warrior Foundation, 701 John Sims Pkwy E, Suite 305, Niceville, FL 32578.
