Murray was 78 when he passed away on July 29, 2023. He was born in Vallejo on June 29, 1945 to Ruth Ada and Charles Homer Pulse. He attended Clearlake High School in Lakeport. After graduation, he joined the Navy and became an electrician onboard the USS Yorktown CVS 10 where he came into contact with Agent Orange off the shores of Vietnam. Possibly, due to this, later in life he was diagnosed with Parkinsons. Fresh out of the Navy, he was hired on by PG&E where he built and maintained Sub Stations around the state and then years later transferred to work at the Geysers. Thirty- three years later, he retired, only to return to the work force with Calpine for another 10 years. On his days off he loved to hunt and fish.
On July 3, 1971, Murray married ‘the girl next door’, Cathy Deacon. They were married for 52 years until the day he died and had 2 sons, Charles “Jody” Pulse and Jesse Homer Pulse.
Murray leaves behind his wife, Cathy; his sons, Jody (Missy), Jesse (Julie); 2 grandchildren Kate and Colin; his sisters Colleen (Harold) Young, Kathleen Rodello; numerous other relatives and loyal friends. We all miss him dearly.
As he requested, no services will be held. Donations in his honor may be made to Hospice of Lake County 1862 Parallel Drive Lakeport, CA 95453.
