Our dear Uncle, brother in law and friend, Morris Dee Pulley returned home to our Heavenly Father on May 8, 2014 from heart failure. Morris was born July 2, 1935 to Elmer Arnold Pulley and Katie Marie Mott. He was raised and attended schools in American Fork, Utah, graduating from American Fork High School and LDS Seminary in 1953. Later, he went to Clerical School and worked for many years as a clerk for Denver Rio Grande and later for Union Pacific Rail Road. He served in the National Guard.
Morris married the love of his life, Kathleen Berry on August 7, 1987. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on August 7, 2000.
Morris enjoyed music, playing both the piano and the organ. He loved gardening. Year after year, he grew beautiful crops that he freely shared with his friends and neighbors. He enjoyed genealogy and sharing stories of ancestors with other family members. He belonged to the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. He loved Christmas which was evident in his beautifully decorated home and Christmas trees. One of Morris' greatest qualities was his desire to care for the needs of others.
Morris and Kathleen appreciated the arts, especially operas, plays and concerts. Both he and Kathleen worked in the Family History Center in the American Fork Tabernacle. Later, they were called to work in the baptistery at the Timpanogas Temple.
