Ronald Kahler "Ron" Hull - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Ronald Kahler “Ron” Hull

March 9, 1946 - November 18, 2023

Ronald Kahler “Ron” Hull, who was a talented, intelligent, jokester, prankster and simply an overall awesome person, died on Saturday, November 18, 2023 in his home town of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Ron was fighting pancreatic cancer for more than 2 ½ years, but it was a ruptured fistula that ultimately took his life.

Ron was born on March 9, 1946 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania to the late Charles Kahler and Helen Hull. He was the youngest of the family with an older sister and brother, Nancy and Charles Richard. Susie and Ron met each other at Shippensburg State College in March 1968. It was love at first sight, and they were married on December 28, 1968 in Lewistown, Pennsylvania. They moved to Delaware to pursue their teaching careers. Ron taught in the Christina School District for over 35 years, retired from the State of Delaware, and taught for another 5 years in Cecil County Public Schools in Maryland.

Ron is survived by his wife, Susan, two children, Kelly Wells and husband, Chris Wells and Kris Hull and wife, Pam Hull, and his five grandchildren, Brook Augustine, Charlee Wells, Kaleb, Keegan, and Kalvin Hull.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 9 am until 11 am on Friday, December 1, 2023, at Hope Lutheran Church, 230 Christiana Road, New Castle, DE 19720, where a memorial service will begin at 11 am. An opportunity to share a story or “roast” of Ron will begin at 1 pm at Embassy Suites, 654 S College Ave, Newark, DE 19713, following the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ron’s memory to Hope Lutheran Church at the address listed above.

  • I’m nearly sure that Mr Hull was my 7th grade Earth Science Teacher, at Christiana Jr High in 1968. I just remember how much I enjoyed his class. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

  • Deeply saddening to hear of Ron’s passing. I learned much both professionally and personally from Ron. I thoroughly enjoyed his company. Too many good times to recount. His photo and smile above displays his classic demeanor as I often saw it… “Hey there, I know something you don’t, but you are about to find out!” …and that ‘something’ always brought laughter. Our thoughts are with you, Susie, Kelly and Kris.

  • So sad to learn of Ron’s passing. It has been nearly 40 years since our last connection, however I have many fond reflections of Tom Bowen, Mike Ramsey, Brendan Finucane , myself and others making our way through childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. From the other condolences, clearly Ron became a loving person, partner, father, friend and teacher of remarkable skills, something apparent in his earlier years. Finally, anyone knowing Ron is blessed with wonderful memories that will last forever.

  • Gale and I just learned of Ron’s passing. What a wonderful, “make everyone feel good “ person he was. My 24 years of teaching at Glasgow HS were made much more enjoyable because Ron was in the building. Our sincere love and condolences to Susie and Ron’s family. Gale and Jim Lynch

  • We just found out that Ron passed away yesterday. He was a great guy and friend. I was proud to take the baton from Ron for coaching cross country. We enjoyed our time with the Hulls a couple of years ago in Williamsburg. Only the good die young and from our point of view,77 is still young. Peace is at the finish line.
