Charles E. Hull, age 81, a resident of Ft Scott, Kansas, passed away Saturday, January 15, 2022, at the Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, Kansas. He was born November 28, 1940, in Ft. Scott, the son of James I. Hull and Ruby Terrill Hull. Charles was a man of honor, integrity and dignity. He lived his life loving his wife, children and grandchildren with all his heart and soul. There was nothing his family needed that he didn’t make sure they had. No one every went hungry or thirsty when he was around. His love for chicken was known by all. To most, he was a quiet force, not saying much but everybody listened when he spoke. He was a man of steel, a Superman, the John Wayne of westerns, but his family called him Dad and Grandpa. He was born a man but died an angel.
Survivors include his wife, Leta, of the home; four children, Charles, Jim, Jeff and Gina; fifteen grandchildren and twenty-two great grandchildren. Also surviving are four brothers, Robert, Earl, Harold, and Leland and a sister, Beulah. He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Joe and two sisters, Virginia and Liz.
