Byron Robert Bullough, 63, passed away peacefully in his home in Noblesville, Indiana, on Saturday, July 16, 2022 after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
Byron was born on October 18, 1958, in Salt Lake City, Utah, the second of six children to Gary and Roberta (Burt) Bullough. His parents preceded him in death. He is survived by siblings Steven (Deborah) Bullough, Amy (William) Tall, Vicki (Kim) Rindlisbacher, Margy (Chad) Nelson, and Sydni (Robert) Turner.
After graduating from Stevenson High School in Livonia, Michigan, he attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, graduating with a BA degree in Political Science (’83) and an MBA degree (’85). His 37-year career as a retail executive took him and his family to Michigan, Illinois, California, and Indiana.
Byron met his wife of 39 years, Janna (Lykins), while the two attended BYU. They were married in the Washington D.C. Temple on May 10, 1983. Byron is survived by Janna and their four children, Robbie (Anna) Bullough, Caroline (Harrison) Smith, Alec Bullough, and Rachel Bullough. They are also the proud grandparents of five grandchildren (Adeline, Benjamin, Benson, Charlie, and Claire) with a sixth on the way.
Byron was well known for his infectious sense of humor and love for Diet Coke and plain M&Ms. He enjoyed going for walks and completed his 14th Indianapolis Mini-Marathon this past May. He was an avid fan of the BYU Cougars, Michigan Wolverines, and Chicago White Sox. He had tickets to attend White Sox and Cubs games with his son next month.
He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout his life, serving in various callings in the Church’s lay ministry for over 40 years, including as a full-time missionary in Madrid, Spain from 1978-1980, as bishop of the Noblesville Ward from 2001-2008, and as an ordinance worker, baptistry coordinator, and sealer in the Indianapolis Indiana Temple from 2018 until his passing. He loved the temple and had a firm testimony that families are sealed for eternity there.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, July 21, at 10am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 777 Sunblest Blvd, Fishers, Indiana, and will be streamed at (www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDRNIlM19wA).
