    Dave Bullock, a member of the SE Busnuts, passed away yesterday. Although Dave did not post on this BB, he did monitor it and was known by most of the busnuts in the Southeast.  Dave was the first busnut I met many years ago when we had both purchased our 4106s. Dave & Minerva were with us last weekend at the SE Busnuts Palmetto Cove Rally. They had went to Front Royal, VA with Don & Doris Robertson to a Hudson Car Meet. After arriving, Dave complained of dizziness and the Paramedics were called. They transported Dave to the hospital, but he did not make it. Dave's Son and Daughter will arrive today to help Minerva and drive Dave's bus.
   Our deepest condolences and thoughts & prayers to Minerva and all Dave's family and friends.  Jack

My heartfelt condolences go out to Dave's family.  I pray for comfort and strength in this time of loss for them.

I am glad that he got to enjoy one more rally before making that final departure.

Dave and Minerva were super Bus Nuts, and we feel very badly about Dave being stricken. He was on top of his game at the SEBN rally, participated in all the events, and told proudly of his recently repaired engine. He seemed very happy.
   At least he was doing things he loved - going to bus rallies and car shows. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Minerva and Family at this sad time. RIP.

To Minerva and Dave's entire family,
we all have a very sad place in our hearts today of this news of losing Dave.  This was the first rally I really got a chance to talk with Dave and our conversation was as if we knew each other for years.  I believe Dave to be in a most wonderful place now that hopefully all of us will join him in one day.  We now have to band together and be there for Minerva and the rest of her family and we all hope and pray you all have to strength to one day accept this.  Minerva, We all love you, please call any of us, anytime just to talk.

May God bless the Bullock family & give them strength.

Wow.. What a shocker.. I just met and talked with Dave last Thursday at the Palmetto Cove rally.. He was eager and quick to offer some much needed advice on my conversion process. After talking with him for several minutes I found out he just lived about 45 minutes from me. My condolences go out to his family..

To Dave and Minerva's family,
Please know that bus nuuts and fans from all over the country feel your loss.  You will be in our thoughts and prayers. I didn't know Dave personally. I'm a friend of Don and Doris, and a fellow bus owner. I'm near Fincastle, north of Roanoke. If there is anything I can do to help you, please don't hesitate to call on me.
