May 09, 2002

Robert Michael Pulliam, a retired Westinghouse Electric Corp. manager and former Columbia resident, died of cancer Tuesday at his home in Surfside Beach, S.C. He was 57.

Born in Baltimore, Mr. Pulliam was raised in Catonsville, where he graduated from high school in 1963. He enlisted in the Army and served in Korea as a radio repairman.

He held an associate's degree in business from Catonsville Community College and also studied at what is now Towson University.

Mr. Pulliam went to work at Westinghouse Electric's Linthicum plant in 1966. At his retirement in 1995, he was the company's manufacturing operations manager.

FOR THE RECORD - Robert Michael Pulliam: An obituary on Mr. Pulliam in yesterday's editions omitted a brother, Richard Pulliam of Rainelle, W.Va., from the list of survivors. The Sun regrets the error.

An Orioles fan, he also played catcher for many years in the Westinghouse Baseball League. A golfer, he had been a member of Hobbit's Glen Golf Club before moving to Surfside Beach in 1998.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Goldfinch Funeral Home, Murrell's Inlet, S.C.

Mr. Pulliam is survived by his wife of 11 years, the former Judith Watson; a son, Jason Robert Pulliam of Baltimore; his mother, Edna A. Pulliam of Rainelle, W.Va.; a brother, Donald Pulliam of Catonsville; three nephews; and a niece. His marriage to the former Brenda E. Bomberg ended in divorce.
