Obituary

Floyd William (Bill) Gullett Jr., 90, of Grafton, OH, passed away on September 16, 2023, after a struggle with dementia.

Bill, born to Pauline (Bassett) and Floyd William Gullett Sr., was a welder, machine operator and mechanic. He was a proud Air Force veteran who served during the Korean War at Fort Benning in Georgia. Bill worked for many years as a bus mechanic at Midview Schools and as the maintenance supervisor for Columbia Schools.

 Animals were always a huge part of Bill’s life. Throughout his years, he owned many horses, dogs, and cats, as well as a multitude of other animals. As a 4-H advisor for over 30 years, Bill loaned his horses to several children so they could participate in 4-H horse clubs. He was a member of the Ohio Horseman’s Council for 15 years. Bill rode close to 20,000 trail miles and was ranked as one of the top ten trail riders in Ohio for seven years in a row.

Bill is survived by his daughter, Brenda (Phil) Huebner; sons, Jeff (Laura) Gullett, and Michael Gullett; sister, Shirley Fyffe and brother, Robert Gullett; 5 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, George Gullett.

A military graveside service will be held on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at 10:00 am at Greenwood Cemetery in Wellington with military honors. Donations in Bill’s memory can be made to Friendship Animal Protective League, Humane Society of Delaware County, or any animal welfare organization of your choice.
