Condolences

Condolence From: Peter D. Keogler
Condolence: As a former shipmate who served with Captain Bull both on the USS San Jose (AFS-7) in Alameda and Guam and the USS Constellation in San Diego it is with deepest sympathy that I just heard of his passing. I just went through some old pictures and found a picture from the Change of Command Ceremony In Guam. I was the duty driver that morning and took him from the hotel to the ship and we had a great conversation. Her said he enjoyed me as part of the crew and hoped we would be on the same ship someday again. Less than a year later I was on the Constellation and he saw me in a passageway finding my way around and he immediately greeted me and briefly showed me to my workspace. This despite the numerous crew members onboard an aircraft carrier. Anyway I cherish the memories and he was able to congragulate me on making Chief Petty Officer before he transferred. I saw him once more in passing after he made Admiral. I still remember the great times on the San Jose especially when we first arrived in Guam. He will be missed.

Condolence From: Lee Cappelletti
Condolence: I knew Lyle for a short time but once I met him, I felt I had know him all my life.
What a great man. Just knowing he is gone makes me feel sad. His legacy is firm and his time here on Earth speaks for itself.
We need more like him now more than ever.
God Bless!

Condolence From: Arb and Andrea Rylant
Condolence: So many Lyle Bull stories...so little space....and all inspirational! Adm Bull was my XO and then CO in VA-196 from 1974 to 1976. He was an amazing example of humanity and leadership rolled up into one giant personality. In June 1976 off the coast of San Diego on USS ENTERPRISE, he called me out of the Ready Room into the adjacent passageway with a solemn "follow me" gesture. My wife was due to deliver our third child any day...so I was concerned. Remember this was before sonograms, cell phones, email, Skype, Facetime, etc. He then broke into the biggest Lyle Bull grin and said..."Do you want a boy or girl?" I said "either one." He handed me the Red Cross telegram announcing the birth of our son. I love that man.

Condolence From: Tom and Marcia Woodka
Condolence: We have lost a champion in a supporter and an operator of the A-6 Aircraft! Lyle was always there to help others and take care of people. He was truly a role model for everyone that was around him. As a former Commanding Officer of VA-196, we shared something in common. Lyle's reputation as the Commanding Officer was well known and something I looked up to for guidance. Lyle was always available to discuss the A-6 and his former squadron.
Our sincere sympathy to Diane and the Bull family.

Condolence From: PJ Braun
Condolence: It was my privilege to serve under Captain Bull while the Counseling & Assistance Center Director aboard USS Constellation.

He was a leader-by-example, who both expected & acknowledged professionalism in action by his shipmates... whatever their position in the chain-of-command. He will be missed...

Condolence From: Rickee D Eddleman
Condolence: RIP Sir! You were the epitome of what a true leader should be. Your kindness and guidance to a young Ensign, who didn't know "come here from sic'em", was never forgotten. I remember you telling me, "Rickee, don't let anybody ever tell you, because you're a girl, that you're not a valid and valuable part of the Navy! Keep your head straight and keep your sense of humor....you'll need it around us aviators.You were a guiding light in the very new and confusing world of Nav' Air.You had that remarkable ability to remember not only folks' names, but something about each and every one of us - including my late husband. My sincere condolences to the family, friends and former shipmates who knew and loved this extraordinary human being. Godspeed.

Condolence From: D. M. Steiner, NC1 (Ret.)
Condolence: I was onboard Connie from 1981-1984, and RADM Bull (then Captain) was probably one of the most people oriented skippers I have ever served under. I was assigned to the Career Information Office (CIO) and one of my duties was to report the weekly retention figures to the Captain, on the bridge. He was always very interested and receptive to my reports, which always put me at ease. We had some tee shirts made for Bull's Bunch, but not sure if all crew members got them. I still have mine and it is one of the ship's mementos that I am proud to own. Rest in Peace, Skipper. You will always be remembered.
