July 11, 1930 – November 4, 2022

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Arnold "Arnie" Bulloch at the age of 92.
Arnie was predeceased by his first wife Mildred, mother of their four children; by his son Todd and by his granddaughter Krystal. He is survived by his wife Martha Nauta; his children, Donna Roed (Chris), Gary Bulloch (Kathy), Kelly Pettit (Art) and his daughter-in-law Marlene. He will be sadly missed by his nine grandchildren, Jennifer, Heather, Jon, Dylan, Tyler, Jamie, Kori, Dale and Brittany and his 14 great-grandchildren.
Arnie was born in Sinclair, Manitoba. At the age of 26, he was recruited to work at London Life Insurance where he worked until he retired at the age of 60. He made some life-long work friends with whom he enjoyed many rounds of bridge and games of curling over the years.
Arnie's favourite place of all was the cabin at White Lake. This was where his heart was, and he spent as much time as possible there. Most of the neighbours' children learned to ski with Arnie and he won the Manitoba Senior Men's Ski Championship in his 40s. Arnie and Martha enjoyed many fishing trips into Cabin Lake and hours of blueberry picking to make his favourite blueberry pie. All of the family have many fond memories of being at the lake with Dad/Grandpa/Great-Grandpa and this was the heart of family life. The family wants to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the neighbours in block two who were like a second family to him.
Arnie and Martha enjoyed 27 winters with their month-long holidays to Mexico each January. They made good friends there and both of them looked forward to these trips and enjoyed them greatly. Dad was referred to as "The Iron Man of Puerto Vallarta" due to his strength and agility.
As the family remembers, Arnie, we can all say, "there was a man who lived his life to the fullest!"
We extend our gratitude to the staff of Riverview Health Centre for their care and compassion.
To honour his wishes, Arnie will be cremated and there will be a small service for immediate family members only.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • I’m so sorry to hear of Arnold’s recent passing. Arnold met my parents Helen and Nick Jansen as clients of London Life. This became more than that and grew into a friendship. I’m Carlyne Gora and Helen and Nick were my parents. I have known Arnold since my teens and I’m truly saddened about Arnold since my husband passed only three weeks before Arnold. I remember Arnold as an up beat, happy guy, always had a joke or a story and of course his love for nature and always striving to catch that nice big Pickerel. - Posted by: Carlyne Gora (Friend ) on: Nov 28, 2022

  • To the Bulloch Family, I am so saddened to hear of Arnie's passing. The memories of your family, Niakwa Park and the lake are forever burned in my mind. Arnie was a wonderful, one of a kind man. I always enjoyed his pleasant smile and his love of life and fun. I have not and never will forget him! My deepest sympathies. George - Posted by: George Andrews (Family Friend) on: Nov 15, 2022

  • Our condolences to the Bulloch family. Yes we had many great times at White Lake. Arnie was always the life of the party .So many great memories.... where do I start? The most giving person he was always helping neighbors and his sense of humor was unreal. R.I.P Buddy !!!!!! - Posted by: Sally Klassen (friend) on: Nov 13, 2022

  • So very sorry for your loss. I remember playing at the house in Niakwa Park with Kelly when we were kids. I remember her parents were so kind, and I recall some good talks with Arnold. - Posted by: Kathy Dzogan Hodgins (Previous neighbour ) on: Nov 12, 2022

  • I met Arnie when I was a young lad of 12 or 13. I used to chum around with his son Todd at White Lake. I realized early on that Arnie was a very special guy. He did indeed teach several of us how to waterski and how to hunt upland game and waterfowl. After my dad passed away Arnie was quick to lend a hand in how to care for a cottage and in particular how to cut down dangerous trees. Arnie you were one of a kind and I will always treasure your mentorship. RIP my friend. - Posted by: Alan Mulholland (Friend ) on: Nov 12, 2022

  • We met Arnie and Martha in Puerto Vallarta many years ago. Had many great times together. Nobody could tell a joke like Arnie. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Kim Hery (Friend ) on: Nov 12, 2022
