  • Richard "Allen" Hull
    Richard “Allen” Hull, age 77, of Walkersville, passed away peacefully at 6:14 a.m. in the comfort of his home on Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016.
    He was born in Walkersville on Sept. 24, 1938: a son of the late Manley “Steve” Marco Hull and Leola Grace “Pete” McClain Hull.
    On June 1, 1962, he married the love of his life, Pauline Mae Shingleton, and she will miss him dearly after 53 years of marriage.
    His quick wit and sense of humor will be carried on by his three children, Marsha (Roy) Skinner, of Walkersville, Steve (Libby) Hull of Jane Lew and Mary (Aldo) Burdi of Walkersville; 11 “ornery pups” who will miss their Poppy, Amy (John) Lanham, Jason (Ruth) Skinner, Rhonda Brown, Amanda (Joe) Boyd, Mariesa Burdi, Christopher (Tomoko) Burdi, Zach Skinner and fiance’ Ali Bowyer, Abigail Lanham, Zyla Lanham, Kaitlyn Boyd and Sarah Burdi; one brother, Russell “Gene” (Sandy) Hull of Cable, Ohio; three sisters-in-law, Dorothy (Bob) Paugh of Conway, Pa., and Betty and Shirley Shingleton, both of Stonewood; and several nieces and nephews.
    In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one daughter, Debra West Nelson.
    He graduated from Walkersville High School with the class of 1955. Upon graduation, he became an honored veteran of the U.S. Army having served in Germany. He worked as a store manager for three oil and gas supply houses: Service Pipe, Cofsco and McJunkin before he retired. In the mid 1970s, he served as a Justice of the Peace for Lewis County.
    He never met a stranger in his life and would talk the ears off anyone who would listen. His grandchildren will always remember his famous junk runs, waking the “ghost” in the covered bridge when they would drive through it on the way to the store and their tractor and mule rides. His hometown of Walkersville will remember him as “Mr. Fix It.”
    He request for cremation has been honored and his family will have a private Celebration of Life Service and burial at a later date.
    Expressions of sympathy may be sent directly to the family at: 967 Big Run Rd. Walkersville, WV 26447.
