Andrew M. Pullen
Nov. 6, 1977-March 13, 2022
Andrew “Andy” Michael Pullen, 44, of Trapper Creek, Alaska, died unexpectedly on March 13, 2022. His family is shocked and saddened by his loss. He has gone home to his Father God and will be forever missed.
Andy was born Nov. 6, 1977 in Homer, Alaska, to Gregg and Suzi Pullen of Anchor Point, Alaska. He loved the state of Alaska and never considered living anywhere else. Growing up in Anchor Point, he started learning to drive at age 5, igniting his passion for anything on wheels. Andy was a passionate motorcycle, gun and classic car enthusiast, and when he wasn’t home, he could often be found “wrenching” on a variety of cars/motorcycles. If not absorbed in perfecting a vehicle, you might find him practicing his aim.
Andy was very proud of his son, Dalton Andrew Lee Pullen of San Diego, California, and daughter, Adriel Laney Lee Pullen of Ewa Beach, Hawaii. His 1-year-old grandson, Clay Andrew Pullen, was a bright light in his life. His family’s happiness and well-being meant more to him than anything else, and he was determined to give them the life he felt they deserved.
He set his goals and pursued them with fierce determination. He began his professional career as an Ironworker. After a few years, he transitioned to Journeyman Electrician in the IBEW, focusing on fiber optics. In addition, he was the owner of Mat-Su Independent Cycles. The bike shop resulted from years of planning and the achievement of a dream. He was a force of nature, and his tenacious spirit was impossible to resist.
There is no doubt Andy will be ecstatically greeted in Heaven by his dogs Spike, Honey, Buddy, Sugar, Peanut and Joey. They all crossed the rainbow bridge, but held Andy’s heart every moment they walked this earth by his side.
Family and friends would describe Andy as a loving father, loyal friend and treasured family member.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Norma and Phil “Bear” Klug, Gerri and A.C. Mitchell; Uncle and Aunt Mike and Susan Masters, and best friends Aaron “Blue” and Charlie “Pup” Phillips.
He is survived by both of his parents, Gregg and Suzi Pullen; brothers, Nick and Connor Pullen; sisters, Angela Smith and Beth Pullen; niece, Poppy Smith; nephew, Sinon Smith; his ex-wife, Echo Wyche; children, Dalton and Adriel Pullen; grandson, Clay Pullen; soon-to-arrive granddaughter, Grace Pullen; daughter-in-law, Macy Pullen; best friend, Charlie Phillips, and many loyal and loving friends. A celebration of life will be held in Trapper Creek this summer.
