Obituary for Ryan E. Bullen

Ryan E. Bullen, age 48, passed away suddenly on May 25, 2020. Beloved husband of Pamela Pack Bullen, cherished son of Phyllis and the late Carey Bullen, loving brother of Crystal Bullen, Rusty Bullen and Shawn Bullen (Bob) Pflanz, and the BEST uncle to many nieces and nephews. He will also be missed by many other relatives and friends. In fact, nearly everyone Ryan met became a friend. The hundreds of postings on social media as well as numerous phone calls and cards since his passing give a good idea of just how many lives Ryan has touched.
Ryan grew up in Milford, Ohio and was a graduate of the Milford High School class of 1990. He attended college at ITT Technical Institute in Dayton, Ohio, where he earned his Associates Degree in electrical engineering. He and Pam married on August 29, 1998 and they built their dream home in Milford. Soon after came Ryan’s dream garage to house his growing “toy” collection.
Ryan’s love for all-things engine related began at an early age with a go-cart and a 50cc dirt bike, to bigger and faster dirt bikes, to a rail buggy, several cars, and a 4-wheeler. A few years ago Pam and Ryan purchased a RZR sport off-road vehicle and they have thoroughly enjoyed the times spent in Somerset, Kentucky off-roading with friends.
His love of engines also led to one of his biggest passions: classic cars. He built his garage just to house his Fords. He loved the challenge of restoring the classic models. The Pumpkin Run Nationals in October was the most anticipated weekend of the year. He found kindred spirits at these various car events and felt a deep camaraderie with the friends he made.
His association with automobiles touched many aspects of Ryan’s life, including his many years of employment at Smyth Automotive. He recently transitioned into a sales position and excelled because of his extensive knowledge and his willingness to provide top of the line customer service. He formed strong bonds with co-workers and customers alike. In addition, he was also a proud member of the Milford Masonic Lodge No. 54 F. A.M. and recently received his 25 years pin to celebrate his years of service with the lodge.
More than anything, Ryan valued his time with his wife Pam, family (both biologically and chosen), and friends. He was a people person and could find some way to relate to and converse with anyone he spoke with. He had a way a putting you completely at ease from the moment you meet and his warm greeting and focus made you feel special, like family. His honesty was a rarity and you knew you could trust him.
Ryan was unexpectedly taken from us as a result of a blood clot in his leg that broke off and traveled to his lungs. It was a shock to all. He touched the lives of so many and will live forever in their hearts. We are all better off from knowing him and should use his strength, kindness, empathy, and patience as an example for our own lives. Please keep his wife Pam in your thoughts and prayers.
The family has chosen to have a private service and burial. A memorial service will be planned for a later date. If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions be directed to the American Cancer Society or any charity of your choice in Ryan’s name.
