Mr. Ullrich retired in 1982 and moved to Rotonda West, Fla. He moved 20 years later to Timonium's Mercy Ridge retirement community, where he served on committees and was a bridge instructor.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:30 a.m. today at the Stella Maris Hospice Chapel, 2300 Dulaney Valley Road.

Survivors include his wife of 34 years, the former Dorothy E. Koerner; a son, Richard E. Ullrich of Baltimore; a daughter, Mary T. Majchrzak of Timonium; two brothers, Joseph A. Ullrich of Dover, Del., and William J. Ullrich of Westminster; six grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. His wife of 33 years, the former Charlotte A. Zink, died in 1970. A son, David M.
