David Edward Bullach

David Edward Bullach: 1958 – 2024

David Edward Bullach, (65), of Gillette, Wyoming, passed away on March 30, 2024 surrounded by family.

David, fondly known as Dave, was born to Wilson (Brud) and Anna Bullach, on June 11, 1958, in Massillon, Ohio. As a child he loved tagging along with his brothers and sisters through the fields and woods inventing adventures. In high school, he loved wrestling and went to states. He also enjoyed track, camping with friends on the weekends, and baling hay.

Dave later moved from Ohio, running out of gas in Gillette, Wyoming where he decided to stay. He later met his wife, RaeLynn, and married her in 1993. They continued to have many adventures, especially in the mountains. They built their house and mini farm together out of town, and then went on to have their daughter, Kylie, in 1998.

Though him and his wife separated in 2003, Dave continued to take his daughter on many adventures, usually on camping trips in the mountains or at his cabin in Upton, and driving and exploring down dirt roads with no destination just for the fun of adventure. He spent most of his time with his daughter, spoiling her every weekend; whether taking her to the movies, going to Hastings to rent movies and buy candy, going ice skating and roller skating, going to every park in town, going to restaurants, going swimming, and buying her all the Oreos and sour candy she could have. He would even throw in the occasional trip to buy either chicks, goats, or horses for his daughter. He always wanted to give his daughter the world and know that she was loved.

Dave was said to light up every time he talked about what his daughter has accomplished in life, and that he couldn’t be more proud of her. In 2016, Dave became a grandpa to Arabella, and then to Ireland in 2019. He continued to spoil them as well, making sure to have the biggest gifts for them every Christmas.

Dave is survived by his daughter, Kylie Bullach; and his two granddaughters, Arabella and Ireland. He is also survived by all of his brothers and sisters, including: Tom (Bonnie) Bullach, Constance Tan, Jim Bullach, Patricia Bullach, Barb (Bruce) Lautzenheiser, and Brenda (Richard) Heiser. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews, including: Ben Bullach, Ashley Bullach, Katie Bullach, Heather Bullach, Josiah Bullach, Avery Tan, Blake Tan, Radley Tan, Joe Lautzenheiser, Chad Lautzenhesier, Erin Lautzenheiser, Stephanie Purandare, and Weslee Marcelli. He is also survived by many friends from both Wyoming and Ohio.

While Dave left us far too soon, he was so loved by all his friends and family. His daughter will continue to make him proud for all the years to come. A memorial service will be conducted in David’s honor at a future date.
