His death was announced Thursday by Daniel Logan, who played young Boba Fett in Attack of The Clones.

Bulloch is survived by Mrs. Maureen, three sons and ten grandchildren.

While Bulloch is recognized as Boba Fett, he only played the role physically, with Jason Wingreen providing the voice in the original series.

But they made sure he earned his paycheck, and also made cameos as Lieutenant Sheckil in The Empire Strikes Back and Captain Jeremoch Colton in Revenge of the Sith.

Years later he reappeared on the series during Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, in which he portrayed Captain Jeremoch Colton, a man from Alderaan who piloted Kenobi, Bail Organa and Yoda on the busy planet Coruscant.

He proved his love for the saga and made little cameos Star Wars fan films Order of the Sith: Vengeance and its sequel Downfall – Order of the Sith in support of Save the Children.

He spoke in an interview in 2013 about appearing in Star Wars projects again and said to tk: "The nice thing is … when I wear a helmet, nobody knows how old I am."
