Obituary: George Bull, Ladera pharmacist

George Bull Jr., the longtime owner and pharmacist of Bull's Ladera Pharmacy in the Ladera Country Shopper mall, died July 17 in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was 90.

Mr. Bull served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and was the son of a pharmacist. When he opened in the Country Shopper mall, Mr. Bull was one of the first businesses to rent space there. He retired and sold his pharmacy in the mid-1990s.

"He was always super friendly to all his customers," his niece said, adding that she used to hang out there when visiting from Chicago. At the time, the pharmacy included a soda fountain, she said. "He made many longtime friends in Ladera and Portola Valley."

Mr. Bull had a lifelong interest in Native American culture.

He was preceded in death several years ago by his wife Edith. Mr. Bull is survived by his son George Bull III of Santa Rosa; and daughters Cathy and Barbara of Scottsdale.
