Glenn A. Hull
Glenn A. Hull left his earthly home on August 30th, 2017 and now resides in the presence of his Lord and Savior. Glenn was born to Frank and Marguerite Hull in Big Rapids, MI on October 12th, 1923. He was a longtime resident of Wyoming, MI graduating from Godwin Heights High School in 1942, attended Tri State College in Angola, IN where he earned his Bachelors of Science Engineering degree in 1949, and then went on to Western Michigan University where he did his graduate work.
Glenn proudly served his country in the Navy during WWII and the Korean Conflict as a radio operator. He was a lifelong active member of Banner of Christ Community Church serving as an adult Sunday School teacher, board member, head usher and choir member. Being a faithful servant of his Lord, Glenn never compromised the Word of God. Because of his passion for reaching souls for Christ worldwide, he and Vivian organized and ran annual mission sales for the church. He served on the board for Wyoming Public TV, was a valued member and president of Godwin Heights School Board, and a member of the Institute of Environmental Sciences. In 1952, Glenn began his career at Lear Siegler as a Senior Test Engineer and was later promoted to the position of Section Head of the Environmental Test Laboratory in the Instrument Division. He retired after 34 faithful years of service.
Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, his high school sweetheart and wife of 51 years, Vivian M. Hull; wives Fern Hull and Betty Hull, son-in-law, Kenneth Doane, and brother, Bernard Hull. His Christian presence and Godly example will be greatly missed by all he leaves behind: his loving wife of 11 years Christa Farr-Hull; children, Leona (William) Kishkorn, Larry (Kris) Hull, Susan (Roger) Edema, and Robert (Cathy) Hull; grandchildren, Heather, Jaimie, Melissa, Nathan, Joseph, Elizabeth and Tony; ten great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren; and several stepchildren. He is also survived by sister-in-law, Peggy Hull, brother, Dwight Hull, sister, Patricia (Ronald) Herlein, numerous loving nieces and nephews, and a special friend, Matt Schmidt.
Special thanks to Mike and Deb Cooley for their loving concern and care throughout the past few years. The family would also like to thank Dr. David Thompson for his care and compassion given to Glenn and his family.
