The Goldendale Sentinel, WA., April, 8, 1915, page 7


     Cecil Hale Bullack, oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Bullack, was born in Klickitat County, March 25, 1897, died April 4, 1915, at 4 A.M. after an illness of five weeks. He was 18 years and 10 days old, just at the beginning of a promising young manhood. He was a native born son of Klickitat, having spent all his short life on their Dairy farm on Spring Creek, near Goldendale. He was a good, dutiful son, always helping at home. He was a member of Spring Creek Union Grange No. 162. They will miss his cheerful face and helping hand. "He is gone, but not forgotten." He leaves besides father and mother, one sister and one brother, a large circle of relatives and a host of friends to mourn for him but what is our loss is his gain.

Oh! call it not death, tis life begun,
For the Waters are passed, and home is won,
But ransomed spirit hath reached the shore,
Where they weep and suffer and is no more.

He is safe in his Fathers house above,
In a place prepared by his Saviours love.
To depart from this World of Sin and strife,
And to be with Jesus, Yea, this is life.

     The funeral was conducted at the house by Elder J.E. Adams and George Darland. And he was laid to rest in the Spring Creek Cemetery, where friendly hands covered his grave with beautiful flowers.
     To the above obituary, written by warm friends, we wish to say the sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved family; a young life of sterling qualities has been cut down by the Grim Reaper, full of promise for ripening manhood. Cecil was well known and liked by the host of friends and acquaintances over this part of Klickitat County. The funeral was attended by many from Goldendale and vicinity.
