James R. Pulfer

Flags were lowered Thursday, November 9, 2017 to honor the passing of James R. Pulfer, 45, of Noblesville.  James died peacefully surrounded by friends and family, while listening to the words of his daughter.  He was born on March 25, 1972 in Springfield, Illinois.

James was a member of Holy Spirit Parish at Geist Catholic Church where he taught religious education, and was also a member of Christ Renews His Parish Team #34.  He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion, and served as a volunteer firefighter, receiving an award for saving a life.  James was a flamboyant dresser with a big laugh and many punny jokes.  He also enjoyed games, puzzles, art, and music.  James loved people, had a heart as big as the outdoors, and made people better for knowing him.  Most of all, he was a loyal friend, and devoted father who loved his family.

James is survived by his parents, Robert and Dorothy (Rood) Pulfer; wife, Megan (Gralia) Pulfer; daughter, Ella Pulfer; sister, Carolyn Southworth; brother, Chuck Pulfer (Nikki); sister, Stephanie Walters (Kevin); several nieces & nephews that he liked to tickle; and his beloved cat, Smoky.
