John Edward Hull
July 24, 1945 – April 16, 2021
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Hull -- a trusted and faithful neighbor, musician, farmer, and father.
John was the youngest son of Edward and Hazel (McKinney) Hull of Alton. He married Beverly Hedger of Carrollton and raised two children: Katherine (Clayton Spencer) Hull of Toronto, Canada and Johnna (Bryan) Dunne of Savoy, Illinois. John is also survived by three grandchildren Ross John, Emma Rose, and Sophie-Claire. Together, they were always up for a laughter-filled game of checkers or Jenga. His neighbors will remember him as an avid gardener and baker who shared harvests and treats every year. John was a funny, clever, honest, and straight-forward man who was respected by all who knew him.
John’s family would like to extend unlimited gratitude to his selfless neighbors, Shelly Stackpole, Sandra Roberts, and Jack Grindstaff. We will never be able to repay our debts to you all.
John will be laid to rest in the Upper Alton Cemetery next to his parents. A small remembrance of life gathering will be held on Saturday, May 8, 2021 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at Alexander Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to your favorite charity in his name.
