Jim Hull Obituary
Jim Hull

Jim was born October 26, 1935 in Caliente, Nevada and passed away on March 19, 2017 at the age of 81. Jim was raised in a railroad family and when times were tough they relocated to Las Vegas in 1940 where his father could work year round. Other than a military stay in San Antonio, TX, Jim lived most of his life in Las Vegas. His primary working career was spent with the Union Pacific Railroad as a Yardmaster, moving trains in and out of Las Vegas. He truly loved his job and had many wonderful memories of the people he worked with. He spent many years coaching youth sports and felt that was his most important contribution; making a difference in the life of a child. Jim took up the sport of bowling at the age of 50 and enjoyed it for the next 25 years. Jim moved to San Pedro, CA in 2003 with his wife Crissie, who is a San Pedro native. It didn't take him long to fall in love with the port town and enjoyed watching the ocean and all the ships and boats that came in and out of the harbor. Jim was predeceased by his son, Chris. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 31 years, Crissie; sister, Shirley of Las Vegas; ex-wife, Judy, Kansas City, MO; sons, Anthony, Portland, OR, Jimmie, Las Vegas, NV; stepsons, Anton Funtek, Las Vegas, NV, Jeff Murphy of Slidell, LA, Shawn Murphy, Kansas City, MO; and 6 grandchildren. Jim had a wonderful sense of humor, could strike up a conversation with anyone, always found the good in others and never failed to make you laugh. He never met a person he didn't like. His later years were marred by illness but he refused to give up and made several trips to Las Vegas to visit family and enjoy the slot machines. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends. Many thanks go to Reliance Hospice for their phenomenal care and support during the last year, especially: Maria, Dionne, Mary, Gary and Amber. There will be no local services but a Celebration of Life will be held in Las Vegas at a later date. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...
You make me happy when skies are gray...
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you...
Please don't take my sunshine away."
