On Tuesday, January 5th, 2021, Herrick T. Bulger, of 8 Prospect Ave, Massena, passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer, at the age of 67.

Herrick was born June 19th, 1953 in Massena, New York to Herrick Bulger and Katherine (French) Bulger Weegar. On September 10th, 1977, he married his wife, Joan Hatch, at St. Mary’s Church, in Massena, New York, with Reverend Lawrence Marullo officiating.

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Joan; and their three children, Timothy and Cathy Bulger, Oswego, Kristan and Gabriel Laramay, Massena, and Patrick Bulger, Massena; his 5 grandchildren, Hayleigh Armstrong, Audrey and Kinsley Bulger, and Judah and Levi Laramay; and his favorite child and furry companion, Biscuit.

He is also survived by his brother, Thomas and Shelly Bulger, Tehachapi, California; and two sisters, Kathleen and James Serviss, Massena and Patricia and Michael Harpenau, Marietta, Georgia; and many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents, sister in-law, Marie Bulger, and nephew, Bradley Bulger.

He graduated from SUNY Canton with a degree in Mechanical Technology. He then continued his education at North Carolina A&T State University, in Greensboro, North Carolina. Wanting to continue his professional growth he received his Kentucky Real Estate license, while living in Taylor Mill, Kentucky. Herrick retired from the New York Power Authority in June 2015, where he worked as an Electrician. For many years previous to that, he held various positions from Mechanical Engineer to Plant Superintendent at Kelsey Hayes Diecasting, in Howell, Michigan.

Herrick enjoyed spending time with his family. Nothing brought him more joy than seeing his family and friends enjoy time at the camp he built himself, in the Adirondacks. Many hours were spent relaxing and enjoying life on his Pontoon Boat, this is where you would find Herrick in his element. When not on the lake, Herrick could often be found fixing anything from electrical, to plumbing, to carpentry. If you ever needed something fixed or built, Herrick was always more than willing to lend a hand. He truly enjoyed helping others. Herrick could also be spotted around town, top down, in his 1951 Crosley Super Sport, with either his bride, Joan or his four-legged companion, Biscuit.

A Mass of Christian Burial celebrating his life will be held Saturday 11:00 AM at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Burial will be in the spring at the convenience of the family in St. Mary’s Cemetery, Waddington. Due to the current health crisis, social distancing, seating restrictions, and face covering guidelines will be followed while in the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Herrick’s memory to the Louis McClure-Bee Tabakin Building, Hope Lodge, 237 East Avenue, Burlington, VT 05401-3412.

Diane and I send our heartfelt condolences to you all during this difficult time.
Working with Herrick at NYPA was a pleasure and we always enjoyed each other’s humor and company. He was instrumental in getting me hooked on Sudoku puzzles. He was extremely proud of the camp he built and I was impressed the day he took me for a visit. His love for you all was quite evident and I will surely miss him.

Such a beautiful picture..such a beautiful soul. My childhood friend, "I guess God has a better plan for us both". Our heartfelt condolences to everyone who's life you have touched. I have so many fond memories of spending most of my youth with Kathy on the farm. You gave Kathy and I our very first driving lessons with the old doodle bug. Wasn't pretty when we missed the turn and ended up in the snowbank! I'm afraid even the Angels covered their ears as you gave us a good tung lashing in rare Bulger form. Rest in Peace my dear old friend. Debbie and Lee Hill

I met Herrick years ago when he started taking music lessons with me. Herrick did so much for me and was over generous of helping to get my studio together. He was always a joy to be around and will miss him dearly. I last saw him in his little coupe when he dropped by the studio to visit last summer. I really wish I could have seen him again. Rest in Peace my friend and I will see you again someday.
