August 17, 1993 – May 18, 2018
Dmitrii Brigham Bullard (Dema) was taken from us tragically on May 18, 2018. He was in Oregon trying to break another cycle of addiction which so often robbed him of stability, relationships, and happiness.
Dema was born in Balti, Moldova on August 17, 1993. He joined our family in Farmington, in July 1997. Two brothers came with him which completed a family of nine children to Lonnie and Ardene Bullard. Though large in stature, Dema was best known for his big smile, soft heart, and gentle nature. He was a terrific athlete who excelled in football, baseball, and basketball. He was an all-state basketball player at West Ridge Academy. We will miss his laugh and the kind and teasing way he interacted with his nieces and nephews. Dema truly had a way of making those around him feel valued and loved.
Dema is survived by his father Lonnie M. Bullard, step-mother Kimberly S. Bullard, and siblings, Melissa Itaaehau (Sam), Michael Bullard (Andrea), Shannon Garber (Cameron), Kenny Bullard (Raisa), Anna Lloyd (Mitch), Denis Bullard, Valek Bullard, and Madison Bullard. Also, step siblings Steve Stoker (Mindy), Matt Stoker (Roni), Michelle Jennings (Judson), Darin Stoker (Andrea), Jeffrey Stoker (Melanie), Robby Stoker, Sarah Mitchell (Daniel), Eric Stoker, and numerous nieces and nephews who adored him. He was preceded in death by his mother, Ardene Ressler Bullard.
We love you Dweebs and will see you again.
