He and his wife, Jennifer, have five children. He served as an Area Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

He told UtahValley360 about his brush with death.

Nearly 18 months ago, Bullock was headed from Highland to his office in Lehi. Right after he got in the commuter lane, he had a heart attack.
“I was in so much pain and was getting nauseous — and going 55 miles per hour,” he says. “I said to myself, ‘I’m going to die and I need to get off the road so I don’t hurt anybody.’”
He turned toward the Traverse Mountain Outlets and parked on the side of the road. He jumped out of his truck, doubled over in pain while he tried — but failed — to communicate to the 911 operator. Then, a one-in-a-million miracle.
“I saw one truck coming from the other direction, and he slowed down and called out his window, ‘Can I help you?’” Bullock recalls.
It was his son-in-law. The two rushed to the hospital where Bullock’s life was saved.
“I’ve gained a great appreciation to stop and look at the beautiful world we have to live in. The fabric of our lives is made up of family and friendships, and I’ve always felt my life was meaningful. But now I’m at a completely different level,” he says.[1]
