Rodney Malcolm Bulloch, 72, formerly of Southwest Georgia, passed away Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021 at his residence in Lanett, Alabama.

“Rod”, as he was affectionately known, was born Oct. 7, 1949 in Camilla, Georgia, son of the late Harry Edward Bulloch and Lema Willis Bulloch. He was a member and Deacon of Shiloh Baptist Church in Ft. Gaines, Georgia, where he served in a number of capacities. Growing up, Rod enjoyed fishing trips with his parents and siblings and that enjoyment continued to be shared with his wife.

In his younger years, he relished being a Disc Jockey where his handle was “Rocking Rod”, he also worked as a Reporter and News Editor for WALB TV in Albany, Georgia.  He and his wife Lynda purchased a trucking company in 1988 that grew into J&P Hall Express, the predominant air freight trucking company in the southeast, where he served as President and CEO.  He lived for adventure, while always encouraging his son and grandchildren to take the road less traveled.  He will be remembered as a comedian and jokester.  He cherished making people laugh.  His family and friends will recall his most endearing quality, his willingness to give his time.
