Obituary for Charles Thomas Pullen

Pullen, Charles T.

Charles Thomas Pullen, age 71 of Middleville, passed away at Pennock Hospital on November 20, 2020. Charles was born on August 25, 1949 in Hastings to Albert and Mildred (Shooker) Pullen. Charles was a faithful employee at Bradford White for over 44 years. Charles proudly served his country in the United States Army, and being a veteran was extremely important to him. He served on numerous veteran’s committees, and volunteered with the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans-No Member Dies Alone program. He was very involved in the community – he volunteered for United Way and held various civic roles including being on the Village planning and zoning board since 2002, and serving as the Village Council President. Charles was a very giving person. He loved people and never met a stranger. In his spare time, he enjoyed being outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. Charles will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Barbara (Holtrust) Pullen; children, Katie (Chris) Thompson, Scott (Tammy) Pullen, Amanda Pullen, Jamie Bardwell, Jesse Bardwell, Jason Bardwell; grandchildren, Camden, Carter, Paityn, Jaxon, Emmi, Sebastian; brother, Theodore (Katherine) Pullen; sister-in-law, Sharron Pullen; many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Al Pullen. A memorial service will be conducted at a later date. Those who wish to make a memorial contribution are asked to consider the needs of the family to help with medical expenses, or Barry County Veterans Affairs.
