Janesville, WI - JANESVILLE— It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a true Heart Warrior. Bronson Cory Bullock, age 3, passed away in his mother's arms on Monday, February 15, 2021, after a life long battle with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Bronson was born on March 3, 2017, the son of Sarah Corey and Mario Bullock, in Madison, Wisconsin.
Bronson had an incredible love for life. He was an avid lover of all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He enjoyed playing baseball, throwing rocks, and going on adventures in the forest. Bronson was a real-life superhero, but he loved Captain America and Hulk Smash. He also enjoyed jeep rides with the top down and going for cheeseburgers, fries, and smoothies.
Bronson faced HLHS with a brave and courageous fearlessness that inspired all who knew of his story. He was the true definition of a Heart Warrior.
Bronson is loved and survived by his parents, Mario and Sarah; his big sister and best friend who he absolutely adored, Zoe; grandparents: Caron Corey of Janesville, Phil Drees of Janesville, and Michelle Bullock of Bolingbrook, IL; aunts and uncles: MiQuel (Jermaine) Morris of Bolingbrook, IL, Shannon (Jason) Morris of Colorado Springs, CO, Cory (Wendy) Galván of Denver, CO, Micah (Rachel) Galván of Elkins, AR, and Leah (Owen) Corey of Janesville; and his many cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandfather, Ronald Heinemann; and paternal great-grandfather, Joe Bullock, Sr.
