Peter (Kim) Kimberbell Bulloch, age 66, peacefully returned to his Lord and Savior on May 7, 2023. He was born on February 26, 1957, to Wirth and Dorothy Bulloch, in Cedar City, Utah. Kim grew up in Cedar with his older brother and sisters Judy, Robert, and Julia. He spent summers on Cedar Mountain with his family herding cows, hunting, and putting up fences. He was the baby of his family and kept everyone on their toes.
Kim graduated from Cedar High School in 1976. He liked to compete in saddle bronc in nearby rodeos. After high school he started college at Southern Utah State College, where he met the love of his life Danice Budreau. After ten months of dating, they married on November 18, 1977. In 1980, they were blessed with a son they named Peter Joseph Bulloch.
In 1981, Kim began his career in the steel fabrication industry. After which, the couple moved to Washington county. When Kim was filling out his paperwork for St. George Steel, he simply put his name down as Pete. To this day, you can tell where people knew him from by what they called him. If a person called him Kim, they were either from Cedar or family. If they referred to him as Pete, they knew him through work or living in Washington County.
In 1986, Kim and Danice were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, who they named Lacie Layne Bulloch. Throughout this time, Kim worked with various companies gaining knowledge and experience. In 1995, Kim started his steel fabrication business. During this time, he developed a love for golf. Golf quickly became his favorite hobby. He found joy in competing in tournaments with his son Pete. Through time and dedication, he provided a life for his family. He remained in the steel industry until he retired in 2021.
In 2009, Kim graduated from Dad to Papa Kim with the birth of his first grandchild. Papa Kim has seven grandkids, Dan, Zander, Daxton, Reagan, Gunnar, Reed, and Sabastian. Papa cherished the time he spent with his grandkids. He loved making them laugh, taking them to the mountain, and playing catch with them.
