Alton Bryan Pulliam, Jr., 72, of Paris, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, July 19, at St. Joseph Hospital.

Born May 23, 1947, in Lexington, Bryan centered his life around his beloved children, Jeremy Dane Pulliam, of Lexington, Sarah Brynn Deaton (Nathan), of Versailles, and Alexandra Henson Pulliam, of Lexington; and grandchildren Hudson Nate Deaton, Harper Sunday Deaton and Huxley Price Deaton, along with his mother, Maxine Pulliam, of Paris. He is also survived by three sisters, Sherry Hughes and Shea Ernest (Alan) of Paris, and Shanda Crosby (Steve), of Winchester; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Alton Bryan Pulliam, Sr.

Bryan earned a business degree from Eastern Kentucky University, and spent his entire work life at the family business started by his father, Jerry’s Restaurant of Paris.

Visitation will be held from 5-8 p.m. Monday, July 22, at Hinton-Turner Funeral Home in Paris, with a private service scheduled for Tuesday, July 23, officiated by Rev. Steve Crosby, Bryan’s brother-in-law. Burial will be in the Paris Cemetery.

Pallbearers are Nathan Deaton, J.D. Pulliam, E.R. White, and Brandon, Christian and Colby Ernest.

Bryan loved watching UK basketball and football, and had a talent for growing flowers and creating beautiful arrangements.

Bryan was known for his giving spirit and was always looking for ways to help and serve others. A truly humble and gentle man, Bryan never wanted credit for his good deeds and became an “angel” to numerous families he helped through the years. He was extremely unique in the special way he accepted and loved everyone no matter what.

The light of his life were his children and grandchildren, who he considered his greatest treasure and blessing. Bryan was an extraordinarily gentle soul who sincerely lived his life with others in mind. Every person who knew Bryan was deeply touched in multiple ways, from his wonderful wit, to his selfless listening ear, to his incredibly open and compassionate heart. He will be profoundly missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to Stoner Creek Behavioral Health Centre, 9 Linville Drive, Paris, KY 40361.

I remember when we were kids and playing baseball out in the circle. You hit that "perfect foul ball" and broke the windshield on my dad's car. Boy were you ever scared. Window was replaced but I don't remember you playing baseball with us after that. Sorry you left us but I know you are in a wonderful place.
