    Default John Bulger obituary

    I just received a phone call from a dear friend letting me know that John Bulger passed away this morning. Those of us in the MD/DE area (as well as those in and around Camden, SC) will long remember John as a dedicated retriever guy and a good friend. He will be sorely missed by his wife, Sandy, as well as family and friends.

    Oh no. Used to train with John in Camden. He always had a flat coat. So sorry.
