Donald A. Hull

Donald Arthur Hull, 54, of Eaton Rapids, Mich., passed away on April 19, 2021 after a valiant battle against COVID-19. Don was born July 4, 1966 to Joyce (U’ren) Hull-Davis and Robert Hull in Saline, Mich. From that day forward he considered every 4th of July celebration to be a glorified birthday party. He took great pride in his Eaton Rapids up-bringing and told copious stories of his neighborhood and youth group memories. After graduating from Lansing Christian High School in 1984, Don went on to serve in the United States Air Force for five years. He later went on to study Production Management and received his bachelors from Spring Arbor University in 2006.
Don spent his career working in Manufacturing at both Meridian Magnesium and General Motors, through which he formed many of his life-long friendships. He also had a passion for sports which illuminated through his co-ed softball participation, coaching his kids’ sports teams, and cheering on his Michigan State Spartans. Above all else, Don is remembered most for his love and pride in his wife and children and all of their beauty and accomplishments. If you knew (or think you met) Don, he undoubtedly remembers you and any stories you might have told him, including the name of your childhood dog or what color huffy bike you rode around the neighborhood.
Don is survived by his “beautiful bride” of nearly 21 years, Renae Petty-Hull; and his two children, Madelynn Hull (Andrew Lula) and Chase Hull, who will continue to grow and avenge this untimely death. He is also survived by his brothers, Chris (Trish) Hull, Mike (Norene) Hull, Mark (Kimberly) Petty, Ryan (Kelly) Petty; and countless nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. Don is now dancing with the angels who passed before him, including his parents, Joyce (U’ren) Davis-Hull and Robert Hull; and his daughter, Linzee.
