Christian “Chris” Hulls III, 69, beloved husband, father, brother, and uncle was peacefully called to the Lord on December 29th, 2018, from his home in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Chris was born in Wickenburg, Arizona, on April 27th, 1949. He attended various schools throughout Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico before graduating from Flagstaff High School in 1967. He then attended NAU for a year before enlisting in the Navy during which time he served as a Seabee in Vietnam. After the service, he returned to Flagstaff and worked as a heavy equipment operator, and later as an electrician for many years with N J Shaum & Son. He recently retired after working 37 years for Transwestern Pipeline.
In his younger days, Chris was a volunteer firefighter with the Doney Park Fire Department and later served on their Board of Directors. He also served as a past member of the St. Mary’s School Board and, more recently, as a member of the San Francisco de Asis Parish Council, as well as a member of the Knights of Columbus.
Chris never tired of spending time with his family at Lake Powell. He also enjoyed hunting, camping, hiking and traveling. Chris is survived by Sharlene, his loving wife of 45 years, daughter Tamara (Travis) Dooley, son Brandon (Melissa) Hulls, brother Gary Hulls and other extended, loved family members. He will be deeply missed and forever in our thoughts and hearts.
