Charles Lyle Bullock, 62, passed away Sunday, August 27, 2017, at his home. He was born July 11, 1955, to Dewain and Louise Bullock. He was a lifelong resident of the Dry Creek Community. He was a 1973 graduate of Pine Grove High School. After graduation he enlisted in the Mississippi National Guard. He was part of Company B1 of the 198th. He was part of the crew that cleared the right of way for the Natchez Trace Parkway. He later became an employee of the Facility Operations Department of NMMC in Tupelo. He recently received his 40 years of service plaque. He was president of Dry Run Hunting Club. He was an active trader at First Monday in Ripley, and was the owner and operator of Lyle's Tack Shack. He was a lifelong member of Concord Baptist Church. He actively served and was president of the men's brotherhood, and was their 2016 Man of the Year. Lyle was an outgoing, hardworking and dedicated man. He enjoyed his horses, loved trail riding, and shooting his guns with his friends. He was the true meaning of a "Paw".
