Obituary for Richard L. Hull

Richard L. Hull, age 73, of Merrill, passed away on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at Woodland Court, Merrill, surrounded by his loving family.

Richard was born December 3, 1944, in Merrill, son of Marcella (Kellner) Hull and the late Herman Hull. Richard graduated from Merrill Senior High School in 1963, where he participated in football and basketball. Richard had served in the U.S. Army and also with the Wisconsin National Guard. On August 14, 1965, Richard married his high school sweetheart, Judy Schnelle. She preceded him in death on August 27, 2017. Richard retired in 2006 after working more than 40 years with the former Marathon Electric in Wausau. Richard was a member of the Merrill Silver M Club and also received his Gold M. He was an avid Packer, Brewer, and Badger fan. Richard enjoyed snowmobiling with his family; spending time hunting on his property in Newwood; hunting in the Black Hills since 1974; spending time at the Johnson’s shack; grilling chicken for family and friends; fishing; playing sheepshead and cribbage; taking care of his lawn and flower gardens; feeding and watching the birds; golfing; playing potbelly baseball for Newwood Tap; traveling all the backroads by car; wintering in Florida; and the brat fry’s at the former Hull’s Ben Franklin Store in Merrill during Crazy Days. Richard’s great joy was being a husband, father, and grandfather, and always putting his family first.
