Rodney T. Bulger, 72 of Fayetteville passed away on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at home, surrounded by his family. He was born January 3, 1947 in Everett PA, the son of the late Merle T. and Bettylou V. (Clark) Bulger. Rod attended First United Methodist Church where he helped with the youth group and assisted as a Boy Scout leader for Troop #124. A 1964 CASHS graduate, he joined the Marine Corps just after graduation. He was proud to be a Marine and it was a large part of his life. Once he returned to civilian life, he became a truck driver for Northern Homes for several years before driving a fuel truck for RLK/Agway for 15 years and finally driving for New Enterprise/Valley Quarries until he retired in January of 2017. Rod was a life member of the Landis-McCleaf Marine Corps League where he helped with the Tom Ausherman Race. He was a past commandant, Secretary of the Home Association, a member of the Devil Dogs and, to him, the biggest honor was being the first Honorary National Flea “Rosemary”. Rod was also a member of the Charles Nitterhouse Post #1599 VFW, the American Legion Post #46 and the AMVETS Post #224 and a past member of the BPOE Elks Lodge #600. A fun loving, helpful and hard-working individual with a sarcastic sense of humor, people love to be around Rod. He loved his family, especially his 4 grandchildren, 4 step grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren and 13 step great-grandchildren; they were the pride and joy of his life. Surviving are his wife Patricia (Nolf) Bulger, and children, Louann Ridings and her husband John, as well as Robbie Bulger and his wife, Laura all from Fayetteville, PA. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Roger Dale Dishong, his stepmother, Myrtle (Brown) Bulger of Cumberland, MD, and his step-brother Ronald Brown. Surviving brothers are Terry (Jake) and wife Susan as well as Richard (Dick) and his wife Myrna all of Fayetteville, PA. Surviving sisters are Dale (Susan) Bulger, Shirley Ann Wright and husband David and Pamela Laye and her husband Jesse all of Chambersburg, PA. A viewing will be held for the public on Wednesday, October 2nd from 11 AM to 12 PM at Sellers Funeral Home, 297 Philadelphia Avenue Chambersburg, PA followed by a private viewing and service for the family. Memorial donations may be made to Homeland at Home Hospice 2300 Vartan Way Suite 270, Harrisburg, PA 17110 or to First United Methodist Church Adult Work Camp, 225 S. Second Street, Chambersburg, PA 17201

Was very sorry to hear Rod passed. I just only saw and spoke to him at Lee's funeral. We use to have a good time at Agway talking when he was between runs. He was a hoot! RIP Rod. Deepest Sympathies to the family. Connie Cullison
