Edward R. S Tull Obituary
Tull, Edward R S

Edward R S Tull, Lt. Col. USAF, went to heaven On May 11, 2016 after a long illness.

He was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1945 and lived with his parents and sister in Springfield, PA until he went to college. After getting a Bachelor Degree in Electronics, he joined the Air Force. He furthered his education with Master's Degrees in Business, Procurement, and Computer Data Management making him an asset in contract management, financial management and program management. He served with the Oklahoma City Air Material Area, Space and Missile Systems Organization, Air Force Weapons Laboratory, Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center, EIFEL Program US Air Forces Europe West Germany, and Air Force Philips Laboratory in New Mexico. He was a patriot who served his country well.

Edward was also accomplished in his personal life. He was a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. He didn't have the usual hobbies like golf, for instance, because he was a frugal guy who would never spend money just on himself. His hobbies were home improvement using his collection of just about every tool known to man, and taking care of his family. He kept his honey-do list short and was always available to lead his children in Boy Scouts, by coaching a soccer team, or attending a school event. He was a natural comedian who kept everyone he knew entertained with his quick wit. He kept Sherri laughing daily for forty-six years. He loved God and knew Jesus Christ was his Savior.

Surviving him is his wife, Sherri, of Albuquerque, NM, his sons Ryan E. Tull (Wendy)of Houston, TX, and Graham D. Tull (Ginger) of Farmington, NM, grandchildren, Gwendolyn, Gillian, Ronan, Griffin, as well as his sister, Gale Tull Sciortino of Springfield, PA.

A quote from Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne sums up how Edward and his family felt about each other, "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good-bye so hard". After a nine year battle with Alzheimer's, Edward reluctantly said his final good-bye.

Edward will be inurned with Military Honors at the Santa Fe National Cemetery, Santa Fe NM at 1:30 pm on Friday, June 3, 2016.

Remembrance Reception will begin at 4:00 pm in the home of Ken and Paula Knarr at 1461 Bluebell Dr NE in Albuquerque.
