Bruce Ullrey Obituary

Bruce Russell Ullrey was born to Thula (nee Russell) and Lee Littleton Ullrey in Mishawaka, Indiana on July 17, 1943. He is the beloved husband of Sandy (nee Rincón) Ullrey; devoted father of Diana (Steve) Woodward and Baird (Heather Puhl) Ullrey; cherished grandfather of Noah (Lisa) Hardwick, Audrey Melton, Emery (Becca) Woodward, Jordan Woodward, Cheyenne Ullrey, Theodore Ullrey, Duncan Ullrey, Connor Ullrey, and great grandfather of Tori Melton, Lorelai Hardwick, Stephen Woodward and Gwynn Woodward; dear brother of Karen (the late Rudy) Gebner and Kathy Miller; also survived by many loving nieces, nephews and extended family. 

Bruce was a veteran of the United States Air Force and held a Master's Degree in Computer Science, specializing in data warehousing. He was a published author and held many leadership roles throughout his lifetime. However, his passion was to be a servant and show them the great love of God to others. In this capacity, he wore many hats; he was a musician, an ordained minister and Vineyard lay pastor across the entire city of Cincinnati, and founder of several ministries that focused on meeting peoples' needs right where they were. He was truly a shepherd with his pastoral care and loved to talk to everyone about the Lord. He always saw the very best in people and had a genuine interest in their well being. He liked to say, "Tell me about something good that happened to you today." He loved to view the world through rose-colored glasses, he loved to be with his family, and he loved to be outside - especially if he could spend time in his vegetable garden.
