Medford, Ore. — The man found in Bear Creek on Friday after an apparent drowning had a candlelight vigil Thursday night in his honor.
25-year-old body Badi Bullock’s investigation into his death is still ongoing. But those who knew him are gathering to show how much he’s missed. Bullock is described by those who knew as a music lover whose smile could light up any room.
Melissa Mayne works for Compassion Highway Patrol, where she met the man who like to be called ‘Buddy’ on the streets. Mayne organized Thursday night’s candlelight vigil to honor her friend.
“His music and his smile and his impact on the homeless will hopefully bring people together. I feel like something special will happen at the vigil for all of them. He was just the sweetest most gentle soul. His smile could light up a room. He had a beautiful smile and he loved music – he loved to sing, he loved to play the piano.,” said Mayne.
Dozens attended the candlelight vigil at 6 p.m. at Alba Park – where people said prayers, sang songs, and lit a candle in his memory.
