Bulin, Sr., mother, Mabel H. Bulin, and brother, Edward J. Bulin. Dave was raised in Bellmore, L.I.

Dave was in the U.S. Army for 3 years and in the New York State and U.S. D.A. Food Inspection Services until he retired after 41 years of dedicated service. Dave loved history and restoring their old home in Fairport and the one in E. Bloomfield that was on the town’s Bicentennial Tour. He was a President of the Perinton Historical Society and enjoyed visiting archaeological sites in the U.S. and Europe, reconstructed villages, and homes. He had a life-long love of ocean beaches, especially time spent at their home in Nag’s Head, and sailing.
