Ricky Lee Pulliam, age 69, Branson, Missouri.

Ricky Lee Pulliam, known to friends and family as Rick, passed away on June 19, 2023, in Branson, Missouri. Born on August 6, 1953, in Chillicothe, Missouri, Rick was the beloved son of the late Harold and Frances Pulliam.

Rick was predeceased by his brothers Bob, John, and David, and his sister Carolyn. He is survived by his long-time companion, Penny "Sony" Wise of Kimberling City; his sister, Mary Gregory and her husband George "Butch" of Kimberling City; his brothers, Mark Pulliam and wife Audra of Columbia, Missouri, Greg Pulliam of Springfield, Missouri, and Paul Pulliam and wife Lovie of Springfield, Missouri.

Growing up in Chillicothe, Rick attended and graduated from high school before pursuing his passion for automobiles at Denver Automotive and Diesel College. After completing his studies, Rick put his skills to work by opening his own business, Kimberling Auto Service. As the owner and operator, Rick was dedicated to taking care of his customers and was known for his strong work ethic. His commitment to his craft and his community earned him a reputation as a reliable and trustworthy mechanic.

Rick's interests extended beyond his work, as he enjoyed spending time on his pontoon and exploring the open road on his motorcycle. Rick's adventurous spirit and love for the outdoors brought joy to those who had the pleasure of joining him on his excursions.

As we mourn the loss of Ricky Lee Pulliam, we also celebrate the life he lived and the many ways in which he made the world a better place.
