Doug Pullar, 94, passed away peacefully in his home in Bellingham, WA on September 14th surrounded by loved ones.


Doug was born in Bellingham and lived a full and happy life. He attended school at Meridian and then had a long and fulfilling career as a road building contractor and was the owner of Doug Pullar Sand and Gravel. He was a hard worker and very active throughout his life. He was a man dedicated to his family and devoted to all of those who had the privilege of being his friend.


He enjoyed gardening, hunting, working on cars, listening to music, clamming and being outdoors. Some favorite memories with family members included attending the World’s Fair 1962, clamming on the beach, picnicking at Point Roberts, having barbecues with friends, and releasing pheasants and grouse into the wild.


He was determined to succeed in all his life’s endeavors. He was particularly proud of his service in the Korean War.


He is survived by his children Del, Linne’, Barbara and Tab, brother Donald, sister Vicki, and 3 granddaughters Kelsey Pullar, Sonya Nelson Provost, and Brandi Pullar as well as his non-traditional family Margaret Lee and her three sons Chris, Michael, and Erik and two grandchildren Damien and Merrissa.  He was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence, his mother, Alice, and grandmother Gertrude (Newkirk) Anderson.

  1. Oh my long time friend since I arrived in Whatcom county how I will miss your earthly presence. Im sorry I did not get to see you after my brain surgery but I was out of it. I came by but it was too late oh what I wish in my grief. You were a great and kind man to me and my daughter when we came to Whatcom county 3 plus decades ago. Oh how time has come and gone. Im glad I visited you before my surgery. You gave all to all who knew you goodbye my friend. Love always and forever Colleen

  2. I will miss the phone calls from you to check on “your” cows. They are doing well by the way. I didn’t realize you had passed. We will cherish the stories you told us.
