November 23, 2005

Albert Louis Bullis, a retired University of Maryland electronics technician, died of cancer Saturday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Joppa resident was 76.

Born and raised in Bel Air, he was a 1947 graduate of Bel Air High School and served three years in the Navy. He was subsequently in the Naval Reserves and Maryland Army National Guard.

He joined the staff of what is now University of Maryland Medical Center and ran its fire alarm and public address systems before retiring in 1980. He earned a diploma at the Radio Electronic Television School in 1959.

"He was a man who could fix anything," said his daughter Diane Bullis Goldsmith of Jarrettsville. "He befriended many doctors and dentists around the hospital and helped them with their little projects in their offices. They always knew they could call my dad. He loved their challenges."

In the 1980s he renovated an old home in Joppa and worked part time at the Bainbridge Job Corps Center, AAI Corp. and Hausted Inc., a medical equipment business.

Mr. Bullis also had a home at Grove Point in Cecil County and traveled to 46 states in his recreational vehicle.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 11 a.m. Dec. 12 at St. Stephen Roman Catholic Church, 8030 Bradshaw Road, Bradshaw, where he was a member.

Survivors include his wife of 53 years, the former Patricia M. Kloch; a son, Gerald Bullis of Fallston; another daughter, Carol Dressler of Nokesville, Va.; a brother, Donald Bullis of Hartly, Del.; a sister, Constance Cloman of Joppa; three grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
