Aaron “Tyler” Bullock, age 35, went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 2, 2022. He was born on May 12, 1987, in Dallas, Texas to Bruce and Kim Bullock. Tyler’s elementary school years were spent in Rowlett, Texas where he devoted his days to playing with neighborhood friends. He was involved in sports at an early age and loved playing baseball for the Mudcats and football for the Longhorns, both in Rowlett. In middle school, the family moved to Edmond, Oklahoma where Tyler made many new friends with whom he spent countless hours playing basketball, video games, and skateboarding. It was also during this time that he took up golf, which he would continue to play throughout his life when he was able to. Tyler was a fine athlete and there didn’t seem to be any sport that he wasn’t good at. During high school, he moved back to Texas where he lived with his beloved grandparents. He had great success playing football at Rowlett Christian Academy. Nearly every week we could find Tyler’s name included in the game highlights recorded in the Dallas Morning News. He loved football and was an avid Texas Longhorns and Dallas Cowboys fan. If a game was on, Tyler was watching wherever he was. As much as he loved watching the games he also wanted to talk about them. He would call his dad or his cousin Joel and just talk about the most recent games; either to rejoice over a win or vent about a loss.

Growing up, Tyler had a very special bond with cousins Jennifer, Lauren, Joel, and Justin during their very early years. Tyler and Joel were always looking for new and creative ways to get into trouble and were mostly successful in their endeavors. Unfortunately, it was usually while they were in the care of Jennifer and Lauren, who were horrified by their schemes; and even more so of what might happen when Nana and Granddad found out. We can laugh at their antics now, but back then if Tyler and Joel were together you could be certain that trouble was brewing. Aside from sports, Tyler loved to fish and in later years he enjoyed hunting wild hogs on his grandparent’s property in Como, Texas. He loved spending time there. It was a second home to him and always a soft place to land.

After high school, Tyler moved to Waxahachie, Texas where he lived with his Uncle Larry, Aunt Tammy, and Joel. This was a good time in Tyler’s life. It was during this time that Tyler asked The Lord into his heart. He was embraced by his church family at Farley Street Baptist Church and he truly felt connected. It was in Waxahachie that he started working for Ellis County Title Company. Tyler absolutely loved his job and developed close relationships with coworkers. He was a loyal and hard-working employee. Tyler later moved to Huntsville, Texas where he attended Sam Houston State University and worked for Walker County Abstract and Title and again grew quite close to his coworkers in Huntsville. After college Tyler worked in various contracting positions including building and maintaining swimming pools, electrical work, etc.

Tyler loved family and he was deeply loved in return. He will be terribly missed, but we know we will see him again in heaven one day and we will rejoice together! Until then, he will live on in our hearts and in the wonderful memories we made with him.

Tyler is survived by parents, Bruce and Kim Bullock of Edmond, Oklahoma; sister, Brooke Bullock of Edmond, Oklahoma; grandparents, Bob and Connie Wood of Como, Texas and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Tyler was predeceased by paternal grandparents, John and Carrol Bullock of Rockwall, Texas.
