John Bulkley Memorial Sculpture by Anita J. Watts
John M Bulkley Jr was a cherished employee at Redmond Town Center, in Redmond, Washington. He worked as a security officer at the Town Center, however, he was always speaking of his love of those special four-legged pets…and was known as a dog’s best friend. When John passed away unexpectedly, the owners of the Town Center, plus his fellow employees, wanted to honor him with his favorite breed of dog, the Golden Retriever. When we discussed the installation of this life-sized Golden Retriever I told the Owner that this dog would welcome people into the outdoor shopping center. A few months after the dedication of the Memorial we stopped in to see how it was being received, and just happened to see a small boy giving the Golden Retriever a big hug. Perfect! John would have been pleased!
