Raymond was born June 21, 1948, to the late Raymond and Helen Bull of Columbus, Ohio. He attended and graduated from Brewer High School in 1966, and then attended the Texas Christian University where he was in the ROTC program. He proudly served his country by enlisting in the US Army in 1972 as an intelligence and cryptography SP5 during the Vietnam War. After his honorable service he attended the Tarrant County Junior College Police Academy and earned his Paramedic & Fire Fighter Certifications. He retired from the Benbrook Police Department & Benbrook Fire Department in 2010 after 33 years of noble service to the community. He was a member of Knight of Columbus, 4th Degree, The National Rifle Association and Boy Scouts of America as a Merit Badge Counselor. Raymond loved to travel, and he always took his family on vacations every year to various places across the USA. Raymond enjoyed teaching security officers, camping, hunting, and spending time with his grandkids. He was always supportive and attended every graduation his kids had, even though he was working two jobs to ensure the family was never in need of anything. He was always a joy to be around and enjoyed telling everyone he met jokes to cheer up their day. Every moment with Raymond was a blessing and he will be missed by many within the community.
Raymond is preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Patrick Bull.
