More detail on this person: Albert Fletcher Bullard III, 67, son of the late Albert Fletcher Bullard Jr. and Westa Wilkins Bullard of DeFuniak Springs, Fla., died March 7, 2012, at his farm in Mossy Head, Fla.

Albert was a man of many interests and a curious mind. He was an Eagle Scout, a graduate of Auburn University, where he received a bachelor's degree in business, and a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon social fraternity. He served in the Army and was a Vietnam veteran. He led a life of varying business interests, including banking, real estate development and yacht brokerage. Being unemployed in Hilton Head Island, S.C., lead to a nine-month sail in the Bahamas with his first wife, Anne Bruce Atkinson Bullard, of Somerville, N.C., on "Sunburst." Returning to Hilton Head, he started Lighthouse Yacht Brokerage and spent many years living aboard his sailboat, Wax Arrow, and selling yachts to people that came as customers and remained friends for years. He had a great knack for collecting interesting people and keeping up with them.

One of the highlights of his young life was being a counselor and scuba dive instructor at Camp Crusoe on the island of Tobago in 1965. He was talking about the importance of this camp in the last days of his life! A second extended sail brought him to Fort Lauderdale, which he called home for many years. In 2006, he relocated to the DeFuniak Springs area where both his parents had been born. The new life as a hay farmer brought new friends and new skills. His lifelong love of restoring military jeeps and shooting finally found a home.

He is survived by his wife, Gabriele; daughter and son-in-law, Alicia and Grant Harter of Seattle; granddaughters, Charlotte and Caroline Harter; sister, Ann Mosely of Seagrove Beach, Fla.; brother, William Bullard of Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.; and many nephews and family relatives.

The family will be receiving friends on Sunday, March 11, at 1 p.m. at Clary-Glenn Funeral Home, 230 Park Ave., DeFuniak Springs. Interment will follow immediately in the family plot at Magnolia Cemetery. Gravesite services will be conducted by the Rev. Darrin Phipps. Family and friends are invited to gather at the Chautauqua building in DeFuniak Springs immediately following services.
