To Our Posterity

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

January 8, 1995 “TO OUR POSTERITY” We want to express to you the goodness of the Lord to us throughout our lives. We know that God lives, that Jesus Christ is His Only Begotten Son, the Savior of mankind; that the only true church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is on the earth today being guided and directed by a prophet through the Savior’s direction. We have had many choice experiences these more than eighty-five years. Our prayers have been answered directly many, many times. We love the Lord and are grateful for the many experiences we had as we tried to serve in various capacities. Life is made up of experiences, sometimes hard but rewarding and necessary and we are looking forward to new and rewarding experiences in this life and hereafter. Many of our Patriarchal Blessings have been fulfilled and all promises will be given if we live for them. I urge that each of you read your blessings often and then help to see that they are fulfilled. Among mine I was promised I would be called into places of responsibility and leadership (fulfilled). I would have the confidence and fellowship of my associates (fulfilled); that I would be warned of danger in time to avoid it, (fulfilled many times); that I would have the opportunity of gathering around me the means that was necessary to work out my righteous desires and to fulfill my mission on the earth. I attribute this last promise being fulfilled to the fact, in part at least, that I have always paid a full tithing and received the Lord’s promised blessing that He would open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings that there would be scarcely room to contain them. The Lord has said many, many times, “If you keep my commandments ye shall prosper.” I believe this means not only financially but spiritually. One of Lola’s blessings is that she would be the mother of great men and women. You are truly “Great men and women” and I am grateful to be your father. We have established our estate through frugality, the Lord’s blessings and hopefully good money management. We hope that each one of you receiving any benefit will first pay one-tenth to the Lord and use the balance to be placed in savings where it will work for you, to make a down payment on a home or reduce a mortgage, use towards a Church mission or some other wise purpose. We love each one of you and some of our teachings have been beneficial. We know we have made many mistakes but our only desire is that all our families can be together forever. May all of us strive toward that goal. May God bless you with all that is good for you to receive. With all my love, Harold Harris Bullock

Spotlight of Harold Harris Bullock's Life

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by Georgia Lea Shaefer On November 7, 1905 Harold Harris Bullock was born at 225 South 400 East, Pleasant Grove, the son of Wm. Alexander Bullock and Clare Ellen Marrott. He was the seventh child in a family of eight. Harold attended grade school where the Central School now stands. At a very early age Harold started working. He drove cows to and from the pasture west of Pleasant Grove. This was a hard job but he was conscientious and dependable. When he was 12 years old he started thinning beets. At 14 he drove a delivery truck for Thornton & Sons. He attended high school where the old junior high used to stand. He graduated in 1924 and then worked for Thornton Lumber Yard & Grocery for several years. Harold was active in Church throughout his youth. He received a mission call to the Southern States and left in April 1929. There he had many inspirational experiences. In June 1931 Harold was released from his mission in Alabama. He went to Atlanta, Georgia to get his trunk before returning home. As all the Elders were at a meeting he visited with Lola Robbins (a lady missionary who was also from Pleasant Grove) who was living at the mission home. In November he attended a dance and saw her again. She had just arrived home. They began dating, were engaged on Christmas Eve and were married June 30, 1932 in the Salt Lake Temple. In March 1935 they built a two-room home at 110 South 400 East where they still live. A few years later they added onto the home. There they were blessed with five children: Georgia Lea, Clara Joyce, Harold R, William Brent and Steven Lynn. After his mission Harold worked at several jobs so he could be self-supporting and not go on government relief during the Depression as many thousands did. Later he was bookkeeper for the Regional Welfare Storehouse and in December 1941 he became a bookkeeper for Utah Power & Light Co., American Fork. He worked there for nearly 30 years before his retirement. He was also City Recorder for Pleasant Grove City from 1939 to 1954 except for one year. At many elections during his terms he received the highest number of votes of any city official. He was complimented many times by the different City Councils and auditors he worked with about the fine accurate way the books were kept. He is now bookkeeper for the Pleasant Grove Irrigation Company. Harold has always been active in Church and has held many responsible positions. He served in several Bishoprics and on November 26, 1950 he was sustained as Bishop of the Grove Ward. He was ordained by Apostle Harold B. Lee. During his time as Bishop the beautiful Grove Ward Chapel was built. This was a great responsibility and will always be a monument to his leadership. Banquets, auctions and carnivals were held; ground was rented and patches of tomatoes were planted and harvested; all ways to make money for the new building. After his release as bishop, Harold was Stake Mission President and he and Lola served as missionaries for over 5-1/2 years. He served on the High Council and taught Priesthood and Sunday School classes. At the present time he and Lola are workers in the Provo Temple, something they have done since its opening over 10 years ago. They have sent all three sons on foreign missions and support the Church in all ways. “He who makes a garden works hand-in-hand with God.” This is true of Harold. He takes pride in his large, beautiful garden. He spends countless hours working in it and from his garden he supplies food to his married children and to many neighbors. Harold is a special, patient, kind and devoted husband, father and grandfather who loves the Lord. He says, “All my life I have felt the nearness of my Heavenly Father. I know that He lives and the closer I have lived to Him, in that proportion I have felt His help and inspiration. I indeed feel the Lord has opened the windows of heaven and poured out blessings upon me that there is scarcely room enough to contain them!”

Life timeline of Harold Harris Bullock

1905
Harold Harris Bullock was born on 7 Nov 1905
Harold Harris Bullock was 11 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Harold Harris Bullock was 34 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Harold Harris Bullock was 58 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
