Robert J. Bullerman

July 15, 1928 — May 4, 2021

ROBERT JOHN BULLERMAN was born on July 15, 1928 to William and Elizabeth (Honnerman) Bullerman in Worthington, Minnesota. Robert grew up on a farm near Adrian, Minnesota and was baptized at the nearby Catholic church. At age 11, the family relocated to Tyler, Minnesota. He graduated from Tyler High School in 1946. Robert went on to farm for several years and then went to work at the Co-op Station in Tyler. He later began his 35-year career with the Lincoln County Highway Department driving truck for the first 15 years, and then as a blade operator for the following 20. Robert was united in marriage to Elin (Petersen) Sorensen on March 31, 1959 at St. Dionysius Catholic Church in Tyler. In 1960, they were blessed with their son, Jack. The couple worked and raised their family in Tyler. After Robert’s retirement in 1992, he enjoyed many travels and winter retreats with Elin. The couple relocated to Danebod Village in Tyler and on May 6, 2008, Elin preceded Robert in death. In June of 2019, Robert became a resident of the Sunrise Manor in Tyler where he died peacefully on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, at the age of 92 years, nine months, and 20 days.

Robert was a member of St. Dionysius Catholic Church and was a previous member of the Knights of Columbus and the Lions. His fondest memories were made while traveling and spending time with his family.

Robert is survived by his son, Jack of Tyler; brother, Bill of Luverne, Minnesota; and sister, Mary Mueller of Tyler. He was preceded in death by his wife, Elin; parents; two infant siblings, Charles and Ann; and brother, Ambrose “Bud”.
