Jack Sterling Pulliam, 84, of Billings, in the arms of angels, was delivered to the Lord on Sunday, April 9, 2017.

Jack was born in East Lynn, Missouri, on July 16, 1932, to Harold and Glada (Ammon) Pulliam. As a boy, along with his brother and sister, the family moved to Stockton, California.

A builder, Jack took pride in his work, striving for perfection in all things. He was a strong man with integrity and compassion. He was generous and dependable. He had the gift of gab accompanied by a quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. A devoted husband and father, Jack’s life source came from his love for his wife and kids.

  1. We all have our individual memories of this great man He left a monument to his life in the structures that he built and in the people that were thankful to be called his friend. My life is better for having known Jack. And, God willing, I will see him again in the age to come.

  2. Jack was a KICK!!! He always had something funny or off colored to say! Ron and I enjoyed both of your parents and loved being the adopted “parents” to Ringo and Willy. They were an incredible couple who were lucky enough to find each other. I am sure your life is full of wonderful memories. Rest in love both Jack and Rita
