Malcolm Hepple Bull

BULL, Malcolm Hepple

We are sad to announce the sudden passing of Malcolm Hepple Bull on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 in his 79th year. Predeceased by his parents Evelyn Margaret & Joseph Eric “John” Bull, O.B.E. and his two sisters Anne Colvin and Shirley Bull. We are grateful that he was able to spend his last five days at home with his family by his side. Malcolm will be missed by Anne, Jonathan, Jillian & Yoshinobu Takami, Jennifer & Aaron Ball, Jaclyn & Kevin Shelson, and grandchildren Emily & Claire. With his distinctive grin and twinkle in his eye, he enjoyed telling jokes or stories to anyone who would listen, especially if they were about his children. We are extremely grateful and proud to have had such a wonderful man for a father. There is comfort in knowing how special he was to so many others. Malcolm was born in Khartoum, Sudan, attended boarding schools in England, joined the Bermuda Police force at 18, emigrated to Toronto at 23, and started a sales career working his way from regional manager at Bristol Myers to vice-president of the former O-Pee-Chee Company of London. He continued his success with the creation of his own company Simply Candy Ltd. and in his “retirement”, he both invented and founded the Original Stick Chair, which has been sold around the world. We feel Malcolm had an extraordinary life and he was deeply touched by all of the kind words he received, as well as annoyed for “creating such a fuss for everyone”. We will miss him immensely and will be remembering him at a Memorial Gathering which will be held on Monday, December 16, 2019 from 12-3 pm at the Highland Country Club, 1922 Highland Heights, London, with words of remembrance being shared at 12:30 pm. We welcome his friends, neighbours, and acquaintances to drop in and share a story for Malcolm. Online condolences may be sent to
