Ron Bullimore Obituary

Ron Bullimore & John Measures (2)

Ron Bullimore 1925 - 2017

It is with great sadness to report the passing of my dear friend Ron Bullimore.

I first met Ron at Stevenage CBS, where I was showing about 38 years ago. We got talking and he said he was originally from Stamford and he and his wife Eileen were moving back there in the near future.

When he arrived back he got in contact and we became good friends. Ron still kept a few birds, but was finding it expensive and asked if he could join forces to make the partnership of Bullimore and Measures.

We had many happy times attending shows around the country – his favourite being West Wales, where he would reminisce about the time he spent there with the Royal Engineers. He saw action from 1942-1947, mostly spent in India and the Far East.

He enjoyed meeting with the late Yorri Booth and Stan Walker, also chatting to Richie Edwards.

Ron still came up to look at the birds until about three years ago, when he stopped driving due to poor eyesight.

He will be sorely missed by myself and Judy. Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Eileen.

Eulogy to Ron Bullimore

We first became aware of the Bullimore and Measures show team at the Annesley Border Show, years and years ago.
We were invited to visit their bird room and was introduced by John Measures to his show partner Ron Bullimore. Over the year we all visited one another’s bird rooms and a friendship developed ,as we met at shows we always joined in with the Crystals song of “Do Ron Ron a Do Ron Ron “just writing this is making us smile and sing it aloud.

Ron and John showed at local and specialist shows, Ron enjoyed the light hearted banter with a pint and a cigar with all at the shows.
In his latter years Ron was unable to attend and handed the showing to Judith and John Measures.
Ron was a Gentleman and we valued his friendship, and as one could say” Ron was a good egg.”

God Bless you Ron.
