Bernard Stanley Pulz
Bernard Stanley Pulz, born June 20, 1922, to Polish immigrant parents, Stanley and Eva Pulz, in Baltimore, was a self-made man. Leaving school after sixth grade, Bernard had many jobs including truck driver for a beer distributor and riveter at Bethlehem Steel. He served in the U. S. Army during World War II as a member of the ski patrol in the Alps. After his tour of duty, Bernard took advantage of the GI Bill to go to bricklaying school and became a bricklayer. He used those skills to build his own home in Brooklyn Park by hand. Bernard worked at a lumber yard for many years and as a gear man for Longshoreman’s Local 333 until his retirement.
Bernard was predeceased by the love of his life, Bernice “Betty” Samul Pulz, who passed away in 1987. He is survived by two sons, Bernard A. Pulz (Darlene) of West Virginia and Stanley D. Pulz (Kathy) of Brooklyn Park, and a daughter, Carolyn Pulz of Virginia. He is also survived by four grandchildren: James Bernard Pulz, David Pulz (Renee), Jessica Pulz and Benjamin Pulz (Lauren). Bernard has five great-grandchildren: Milla, Livia, Grace, C. J., and Jack to carry on his legacy of hard work. He was known by all as Pop.
The Pulz family would like to thank his special caregivers, Rebecca Ring and Holly Gordon Ring, and all of the medical professionals who routinely visited him and became friends of the family.
