Milton E. Bull

Mr. Milton E. Bull, 91, of Exmore, departed this life on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2023, at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Onancock.

Born in Wardtown, Milton was the beloved son of the late Annie B. Kellam and Henry Bull. He was affectionately known as “Sonny” by his family and friends. Milton was married to the late Verneta “Jean” Bull.
He was educated in the Northampton County Public Schools. Once he was eligible, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, where he served from 1952 to 1954. After completing his military obligation, he returned back home and began to work for a contractor named William C Fray. Years later, he worked for Retallack and Springs Underground Utilities, which was in the same job field.
Milton began hauling metal, due to being laid off every winter, in order to make ends meet. As a result, this led him to start his own salvage business. He became known as the “junk man” on the Shore and the rest is history.
Milton accepted Jesus Christ at an early age. He visited many churches, and later on in life became a member of Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Hacks Neck.
Funeral services were held Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023, from Miracle Temple of Faith Church, Mappsville, with Bishop Diane Wright officiating. Interment was in the Household of Ruth Cemetery, Accomac.
Milton leaves to cherish his memory: daughters, Doris Branch, Shirley Treherne, Mary Bell,  Roxanne Sturgis, Evelyn Johnson, and Keondra Bull; sons, Anthony Bull, James Bull Sr., Kevin Bull Sr., and Darelle Bull; one sister, Minister Mae Parker; 16 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, loved ones, and friends.

Arrangements are by the Cooper & Humbles Funeral Co., Accomac.
