John Curtis Bullock (Sept 20, 1954 - Oct 1, 2022), of Guelph, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by love, after a year-long journey with cancer. Dearly loved partner of Nancy Dickieson. Will be sadly missed by Bruce and Sue Dickieson, Karla, Ben and Katie Oxley, Ian Dickieson, and a wide circle of extended family and friends.

John worked as a building mechanic and millwright at the University of Guelph until his retirement in 2019. His early career was in mining, in Alberta and Red Lake, ON.
John had a passion for the outdoors. He loved to hike, cycle, and cross-country ski. He challenged himself with demanding high altitude treks in Africa, Peru, Nepal and Chile.

He enjoyed time spent with family and friends, including a lively game of euchre after a good meal.
