I have done a further search of obituaries in Lafayette, CA where Paul apparently lived and there are no reported deaths there of anypone named Pulsipher since 2017. I am not sure who reported his death but if anyone has contact infor for Paul they may want to try and contact him. I sincerely hope this is a false alarm and he is out there on a golf course somewher. If it is indeed true we have lost a good guy and friend.

So sorry to hear about Paul. I am praying for his precious family and closest friends to all find strength in this time of sorrow.

When the family called on Tuesday I new it was probably not good news. Paul was great person athlete and friend. His sister Ann is working on a obituary for the BC papers Enquirer or shopper? When not known.

Paul was a best buddy in high school and college and Best Man at our wedding.  We maintained contact throughout the years and visited him in CA.  He was a class act, smart, great high school athlete, humble, quite, and yet had very strong leadership qualities.  He was one of the very best our Class of 66 had to offer.

My parents took Paul and I to MSU in September of 1966 to start our second Spartan lives.  We shared football games, parties, concerts, and rides back and forth to BC over the next four years.

In 1970 Paul graduated from MSU with a business/finance degree, married Staci Cuzma.  They loaded up their new Ford Maverick and headed to California.  Paul went to work for Bank of America in the Bay Area and Staci taught school.  They had  a son, Brian, and shortly after his birth Staci was diagnosed with cancer.  All the good doctors and prayers couldn't save her.  She passed after couragiously battling the disease.  

A few years later Paul met Julie at a meeting at Brian's school where Juile's son also attended.  After hitting it off and a courtship, they were married.  She and Paul attended our 40th Class Reunion.  She survives.  He is also survived by his brothers, John (Sharon), Gary and sister Ann.

Paul became an incredible gardner.  His vegetable gardens became the focal point of his leisure and were legandary (according to him).  He also was very involved in studying and investing in the stock market.  He was a fiscal and social conservative.  He earned a well deserve early retirement from B of A which gave him more time in the garden and with Julie's grandson, whom he adored.

He first came down with kidney cancer and they removed his kidney.  Unfortunately the cancer later showed up in his other kidney and then liver.  After lengthy treatments, and some success, cancer was discovered in his esophagus...too much to over come and he passed away on August 12.

In tune with his humbleness he didn't want a funeral, rather just pass on to the next life with grace and humility.  His family in Battle Creek sought closure and will celebrate his life on Saturday, August 25, 2018, 11:00 the First United Methodist Church in downtown Battle Creek, across from City Hall.  As Roger Davis indicated his obituary will be in the Battle Creek Shopper on Thursday.

Condolences may be sent to:

Julie Pulsipher, 2265 Hidden Pond Ln., Lafayette, CA  94549

John and Sharon Pulsipher, 3866 Beckley Rd, Battle Creek, MI 49015

I have very fond memories of Paul, his family and our times together.  His intelligence, character, and loyalty will stay with me forever. May he rest in peace and be reunitied with those loved ones and friends who have passed before him.

Stevie's comments (I always called him Stevie

from the old Enquirer baseball days and even into

his refereeing career) were spot on. Paul and I

shared a desk in Jim Hamilton's biology class

our freshman year and ended up in a phys. ed.

class when the teacher told me to go out

and guard Paul in basketball  (no need to guess

how that came out!). His passing is sad in so many ways--

a good, strong, athlete, with a great sense of humor,

and an all-around nice guy. Greatly missed.
