Hollis “Chuck” Tull, age 80 of Carlyle, died on Friday, January 21, 2022, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese.
He was born on October 24, 1941, in Union City, Tennessee, to the late Hollis and Willie (Owens) Tull. He married Ruth (Lanham) Tull on February 7, 1963. Ruth was the love of his life and his favorite jitterbug partner.
Mr. Tull is survived by his beloved sister, Bonnie Thacker; his sister-in-law, Lucy Mae Hammel; his sons, Jay Tull and wife Jana, and Travis Tull; his grandchildren, Sadie Tull, Stewart Tull and partner Raevin Rather, and Dil Tull and wife Meghan; 3 step-grandchildren, Ethan Engele, Elliott Engele, and Elizabeth Engele; and a great granddaughter, Amelia Marie Tull.
Mr. Tull was preceded in death by his parents; his bride of 56 years, Ruth Marie Tull; brothers-in-law, Butch Hammell, Wayne Lanham, Cecil Thacker, and Delmar Bast; and sisters-in-law, Maxine Lanham and Darlene Bast.
Mr. Tull was a Christian and life-long member of the First Baptist Church in Carlyle. He was a people person who never met a stranger, and he was beloved by almost everyone who met him. Chuck loved a fresh cut lawn, and mowing was a passion of his. Mr. Tull will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
A Memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations are suggested to the First Baptist Church in Carlyle, and they will be received through Zieren Funeral Home, 1111 Clinton Street, Carlyle, IL 62231.
