Ed Pullin was born in El Dorado Springs where he helped his parents with his younger siblings and on the farms. After numerous moves, the family settled in Idaho.
When not at work Ed would often be with his friends racing the back roads of Kimberly in their motorcycles and cars.
After graduating high school Ed joined The Army and took the world by storm. First it was north to Alaska where he met his wife Annette who bore his first son, Michael.
Then Ed found himself repelling around and even in the Korean DMZ to inspect downed helicopters. He was assigned to Virginia where he taught The Army’s next generations of mechanics and even helped write the book on how to do so. After stints in Germany and Oklahoma Ed retired.
Still, he traveled the world and worked in places such as Panama. After a few years he came home to be with his family in Idaho. The rest of his life found Ed doing what he loved to do: helping those who needed it. He went to auctions, fostering connections and relationships, telling stories and watching A LOT of NASCAR.
Ed was preceded in death by his father, Roland; his brother, Gary, and his wife Annette. He is survived by his mother, Mildred; sisters Evelyn and Doris; and sons, Mike and Joe. He will be buried next to his wife at Hillcrest Cemetery.
Graveside services began at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 1, in Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Caldwell, ID. Memories and condolences may be shared at www.dakanfuneralchapel.com.
