Joe was born August 21, 1925, at Nashua, the son on Monroe Bullis and Clara (Keith) Bullis. In 1932, the family moved to St. Ansgar.

Joe was called into military service and served his country from 1943 to 1946, during World War II, in the 741st Military Railroad Battalion. Joe serves as a fireman on the steam engines and then as an engineer.
Joe married Katherine Rust in September of 1947 at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. Three children were born to this union: Ronald Bullis, Nancy Bullis and Susan Bullis. The family moved to Osage in 1954, when Joe had a lifelong business of selling and servicing appliances.
Joe was an aviation buff and enjoyed flying his airplane and hang glider. Both Joe and Katherine loved to travel, especially their trips to the Holy Land.
Among those left to cherish Joe's memory are his daughter, Susan Bullis of Mason City, his nieces and nephews and friends.
