Bobby Joe Hull

Bobby Joe Hull, 89, of Shelby passed away peacefully on Monday, April 15th, 2024, at Cleveland Pines Nursing Center.

Bob was born on December 20th, 1934, and lived his life with a heart full of patience, joy, and laughter. He was the son of the late Bill and Lillie Hull and was the youngest of six siblings. Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Jeannette Hoyle Hull.

Bob served in the Army before dedicating his career to Winn Dixie, retiring after 49 years. He will be remembered by many of his friends from the Leona Neal Senior Center for his love of card games, especially, "Gin Rummy." Bob also had a passion for helping with the Local D.A.V. in Shelby where he served as Chaplain for many years. He was an avid sports fan, a devoted husband, and wonderful father.

He is survived by his son, Greg Hull of Shelby; his daughter and her husband, Dana and Jim Hickman of Cumming, GA; two grandchildren, Hunter and Kensley Hickman of Marietta, GA and New York, NY, respectively; a future granddaughter-in-law, Hannah Postema of Marietta, GA; and a grand-dog Walter. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff at Cleveland Pines and Hospice of Cleveland County.

A funeral service to celebrate Bob's life will be held on Saturday, April 27th, 2024, at 2:00 pm, after a receiving of friends beginning at 1:00 pm. Please join us at Stamey-Tysinger Funeral Home Chapel (846 East Stagecoach Trail, Fallston, NC 28042) where the Rev. Bobby Steen will be officiating. Interment will follow the service at Rose Hill Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested memorials be made to Leona Neal Senior Center (100 T.R. Harris Dr, Shelby, NC 28150) or the Alzheimer's Association - Western Carolina Chapter (4600 Park Rd., Charlotte, NC 28209).

Though he will be deeply missed, family and friends will remember Bob fondly through his many enduring words of wisdom... "I take my problems at night and lay them on my nightstand. I'll pick them up the next day - if I must." We look forward to carrying on his legacy of kindness, generosity, and gratitude. In his own words, "every day is a good day."
