He also had suffered from failing eyesight in recent years. Pattullo is survived by his wife, the former Lucile Wilson, daughter of one of Dallas's early leaders, J.B. Wilson. Mr. and Mrs. Pattullo lived in Dallas for a short time before World War I. Since then Pattullo had visited Dallas often on business and social calls.
