Obituary for Adrian Hull

Adrian Hull, age 75, of rural Boone, died March 21, 2017, at Taylor House Hospice in Des Moines.

Adrian Dale Hull was born in Mason City, Iowa on May 15, 1941, the son of Dale and Helen (Bentley) Hull. He graduated from Ames High School in 1959 and later graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Agricultural Operations. On September 3, 1966, Adrian married Annette Mae Barker in Manly, Iowa.

In his early years, Adrian was a member of the Iowa National Guard in Boone, where he was a fixed wing mechanic. For 35 years, Adrian worked for Iowa State University and managed CAD farm ground, retiring in 2001 at the age of 60. He also farmed his own farms in Boone County.

His tractor was Farmall and he enjoyed collecting and restoring antique tractors, working with his hands, being outdoors, listening to old country music, and mowing his yard. His companions outside were his Black Labs.

Adrian loved being with his family, especially his grandchildren. He loved conversation with people, whether he knew them or not, and he had a great sense of humor and quick wit. Adrian enjoyed reading history, especially military and Presidential topics, and loved a good piece of pie.

Over the years, he and wife Annette raised many foster children. He was active in his church, and served on various committees.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and his wife, Annette in 2008.

Adrian is survived by his son, Loren Hull and wife, Ann of Boone; his daughter, Jolene Jungling and husband, Travis of Des Moines; a sister, Karen Craig and husband, Steve of Indianapolis, Ind.; a brother-in-law, Carl Foster of Casa Grande, Ariz.; three grandchildren, Danielle Dorsey, Andy Hull and Logan Hull; a great-granddaughter, Mattilynn Dorsey.
