William E. Rulon Obituary
William E. Rulon September 3, 1932 - April 30, 2017 San Diego - Bill was born in Clayton, MO, to Elwood and Justine Ottofy Rulon. He graduated from Clayton High School in 1950 and went on to the University of Missouri, earning both his BS in 1954 and his JD in 1959. He served in the Army between degrees. He also earned an unofficial Ph.D as Provocateur. His work with Ralston Purina brought him to San Diego in 1973 where he continued and finished his career with Foodmaker Inc. As hard as he worked he played even harder. He was an extraordinary athlete in every sport he played. He was a golf addict, loved softball and was crazy about Over The Line, where he became infamously known as "The Claw". He was preceded in death by his father Elwood Rulon, mother Justine Rulon, sister Frances Rulon and grandson Nathan Stephens. Bill is survived by his wife of 61 years Beverly, son Thomas, daughter Diana Stephens and grandchildren Bella and Dane Stephens. Services will be at La Jolla Presbyterian Church at 11am this Thursday the 4th of May followed by a reception.
