He was the beloved husband of Martha (Simpson) Pulley of Chelmsford, with whom he shared 37 years of marriage. He was the loving father of Dawn Pulley (Adam Blanchette) of Belmont and Robin Pulley of Belmont, and the brother of Bette Pulley of Kennebunk, ME. He dealt with Alzheimer’s with dignity and humor.

Born on February 9th,1945, he was raised in Arlington MA, the son of the late James Pulley and Barbara (McKinley) Pulley. Dick was a proud veteran of the Navy, serving during the Vietnam war. He was employed as the Northeast Sales Manager for Microsemi Corporation in Lowell MA, until his retirement in 2010.

Dick’s many interests and hobbies included golf, boating, and tennis. He enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and the many dogs that rounded off his family.

His warmth, humor and smile will be fondly remembered by all, but especially missed by Martha, Dawn, Adam, and Robin.

I worked at M/A-Com back in the 80's and 90's where I met Dick. I worked with him for about 10 years and have many great memories of his humor and friendship. He and I are both dog lovers and would talk about our devoted pets often. I also got to meet his wife Martha who he adored. I will miss Dick, but will always be thankful for the memories he left with me. You can always tell a person who left a mark on your life, because when I think of Dick it is always with a smile thinking of a business trip or golf outing I was with him in.
Martha and family my deepest condolences on your loss of a Beloved Husband and Father.

I had the pleasure of working with Dick for many years. He was a great guy and even though I had not seen him in decades, i still was a little taken aback and felt the loss when I just happened to notice the announcement in the paper My sincere condolences to all the family and friends.

Cousin Richie was an older cousin to myself and two brothers. He was bigger than life to us. While we were much younger we were impressed that our cousin was in the Navy during the Vietnam War. I remember his Mother, our beloved Aunty Barbara being so worried, Especially with the Pueblo incident in the news. Richie got married and started a family with his girls Dawn and Robin. Again a big deal for us as Richie and his sister Bette were the only cousins we had that were local. As we grew older our lives pulled us into our own circles as it can. But the memories persist, One amusing one for me was Christmas Eves at our house in Arlington. The Pulleys would come along with Grandma Mckinley. They were always late of course. There would be smoking and laughter. But what I remember would be Richie having his sardines and peanut butter on crackers to everyone's dismay!
Rest in Peace Richie!!
