Bruce Reed Bull, devoted Husband, Father, Son and Grandfather, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 1, 2021, leaving his family and friends heartbroken.
Born on February 1, 1958, he was the only son of Lucy (Rossi) Bull and the late Harry Bull. Raised and educated in Plainville, Bruce attended Tunxis Community College during which time he began his 30 year career at Acme Monaco, and shared his patience and kindness with others for the past ten years as a benefits coordinator for The Farmington Company. Bruce was a dedicated member and volunteer for the Plainville Fire Company for 25 years; having served in most, if not all capacities on their committees and fundraisers. He found the greatest joy in sharing his knowledge and expertise on fire safety when getting visits at the department from elementary school students, most especially his grandchildren who were his pride and joy. He spent the past 15 years alongside his wife and best friend, Lorrie Ferland, who shared in his love of New England road trips and beach visits, having a special place in their hearts for Hammonasset where they met and were married five years ago. He leaves a legacy of unconditional love for his family and friends and will be missed beyond measure.
In addition to his wife Lorrie, he leaves his children, Heather (Mario) Pierce, Megan (Adam) Sledge, Jennifer Bull (Jack Naramore) and Jared Ferland (Rachel Hawkins); his adored grandchildren, Brayden, Connor, Emma and Jackson; and many aunts, uncles, extended family and his brother firefighters.
In lieu of flowers, Bruce’s dedicated service to his hometown may be remembered with contributions to the Plainville Fire Company Memorial Scholarship Fund, 77 West Main St, Plainville, CT 06062.
