Raymond D. Hull, 86, of Galion, passed away Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 at his home.
Raymond was born in Youngstown on March 3, 1930 to the late Edward and Olive (Myers) Hull. He married Constance “Connie” L. Buskirk on Dec. 20, 1953 and she preceded him in death on March 15, 2012.
He was employed with Galion Iron Works and Eagle Crusher, Galion. He was a member of the Peace Lutheran Church, Galion. Raymond was a member of the American Legion Scarborough Post #243, Galion and the Galion Golden Age Center.

Raymond could be called “The Original Tool Man,” fixing anything with a little WD40 and duct tape. At Christmas time, he and the neighbors would try to outdo each other with their light displays.
