James Wilson Hull passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018 at Complex Care Hospital in Sarasota. He was born August 24, 1943 in Sterling, Illinois to James and Dorothy Hull. He was 74 years old.

Following graduation from Sterling High School James joined the United States Marine Corp where he attained the rank of Corporal. After returning from his military service James was employed at Northwestern Steel & Wire in Sterling for 31 years. After retirement from the steel mill, James continued working for many years doing painting, electrical, and light construction both in a professional capacity and as the preferred handyman for close friends and family. James always enjoyed being out in nature, fishing and boating, & animals, especially dogs. In the last few years when James finally fully retired he still enjoyed playing shuffleboard, pinochle, reading, and going to the movies.

He is survived by his loving son, Jason Hull and wife Kendra; two daughters, Katy Yoder and Lisa Wood; granddaughter, Hannah Yoder; three grandsons Spencer Hull, Gabriel Yoder, and Levi Hull; and a special friend Patricia Morrison. He is preceded in death by his wife of 36 years, Judith Kay (Landes) Hull; his parents; a sister Mary Ann Peterson; and a nephew, Nels Peterson.
