William John "Johnny" Bull, Sr., 77, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2020 at the Baton Rouge General Mid City "Butterfly wing", after a battle with cancer. Johnny graduated from Fortier High School in 1960. Following graduation, he attended LSU, Southeastern LA University and?Tulane?prior to joining the?US Marine Corps?Reserves where his years were filled with adventure that generated many of the good stories which he frequently shared. Johnny was known for his love of being in nature, hunting & fishing as much as possible.
He enjoyed many years working in the Dredging industry with his brother-in-law and best friend, Thomas J. Wetta III Founder and Vice President of Dredging Supply Company, Inc. and was proud of the many beach projects he helped rebuild. He retired from Dredging Supply Company in 2013, now commonly known as DSC Dredge LLC, where he frequently declared that his favorite part of the job was "uncle" since he felt honored to work with nephews Bill and Bob Wetta.
A memorial service celebrating Johnny's life was held on Monday February 17, 2020 at 10:30 am at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Baton Rouge.
Bob Wetta, President and CEO of DSC Dredging said “Our hearts are saddened by the loss of our uncle and a member of the dredging community. John Bull committed his entire life to our industry and for this we are grateful. His love for his family and co-workers was evident through his actions every day of his life. Uncle Johnny will be greatly missed.”
Bill Wetta,? Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer added “John Bull’s vast experience in both the small and large dredge markets, as well as his civil engineering knowledge, made him a go-to person for our engineering, automation and product support groups; he always made himself available and was fun to engage with. He will be missed as a resource and as my favorite uncle!”
