In Memory

Ranny (Ransom) Bullard VIEW PROFILE

Early Saturday morning, May 16, 2020, at 3:15 am, Ran passed from this life. He was comfortable and peaceful. I was able to be with him for several hours just before he transitioned. His sister Diana had had numerous conversations with him through FaceTime that week, the last one happening the day before he died.

He was deeply loved in the nursing care facility, Berlin Health and Rehab Center in Berlin Vermont and received excellent care there.

he was known as the Professor and Handsome Ransom.

He was a searcher and seeker at heart and followed many paths. I believe he found a deep fulfillment in California in his engineering work with the radio stations. He left behind many friends there and has a string of friends all across the country and world. He touched many lives.

If you have stories about him or photos of him that you would like to share here, I will do my best to convey them to his sister Diana. Alternatively, you can send things to me, Jan Sandman, in a private message and I will tell you privately how to get in touch with Diana so you can relay your condolences and memories to her. She would really love that.

It was with sadness that I've just learned of Ranny's death. He was a stalward bass in the "Mads", and I always loved to hear him sing. Actually, I also remmeber his singing at Mount Hebron Junior High School. May he meet up with "Mac" in the great beyond and join his voice to the celestial choir. R.I.P. Ranny.

So sad to find we've lost another class member. Ranny was such a nice friendy guy and it appears he had quite a busy life. May he rest in peace with some old friends.

When I was a new nurse in Montclair, Ranny convinced me to buy $800.00 worth of Warever pots and pans that he was selling. In reality, they were great  and lasted many years. He was a superb salesman even in his young years.

I remember Ranny from the seventh grade boondoggle of putting on social studies skits to escape Mrs. Sherman's classroom.  Ranny provided Lighting By Kleegle Brothers which made our productions look more professional.  He was very creative!

Here is Ranny's photo from the large, 9th grade, group class photo at Mt. Hebron Junior High School. 

Ranny was gifted and talented musically, as he sang in our high school choirs and the Madrigal choir. I have a 33 1/3 record of the December 1959 Christmas Concert. On that album, Ranny sang solo parts in two selections: "Let All The Nations Praise The Lord" by the Combined Choirs. "From The Eastern Mountains" by the Madrigal Choir. 

Ranny was also talented in radio & TV electronics. One time when we were in High School (don't remember the year), Ranny came to my house on Carolin Road and diagnosed a problem with our TV set. It was a faulty Vacuum Tube. Yes - this was before the widespread use of transistors and other semiconductors in consumer electronic goods. In a short amount of time, Ranny had the TV working again, as he brought a replacement vacuum tube with him. I suppose his early interest in electrionics made him a good canidate for the radio tower work he did later in life.

Ranny became a good friend to me at Mt. Hebron Junior High, and that continued through High School. I don't think I saw him again after our graduation. But possibly during the following few summers. God Speed my friend.

I remember Ranny for his sense of humor.  In Miss Benz's English class, Ranny was seated alphabetically behind his good friend Jim Bowers. The two of them were constantly joking with each other and giving Miss Benz trouble.  She decided that I should be the one to be the buffer between them and she put me in the row between the two boys.  Well, it didn't work as they continued their antics, turning their desks into sports cars with me as a passenger, making racing car sounds, shifting gears and so forth.  I failed miserably at being their calming influence!   But I thought they were great fun!   RIP Ranny
