Robert George Jull
December 1, 1943 - May 12, 2015
Robert George Jull, 71, of Cottonwood, Idaho, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, May 12, 2015.
He was born on Dec. 1, 1943, in Madison, Wisc., to George A. and Ellen L. (Halverson) Jull. He graduated from East High School and went on to receive an electronics degree from Madison Area Technical College. Following that, Bob served in the Army Reserves. He then moved to Milwaukee and later to southern California. He was married there, and he and his wife, Joanne, moved to Grass Valley, Calif. There he became a writer of equipment manuals for engineers at the Grass Valley Group, a state-of-the-art company for TV special effects.
After several years, Bob and Joanne moved to Cottonwood to be in a smaller city. He continued to write for the group. Later, Bob taught electronics at Boise State University and also wrote manuals for them. When he retired he started his own TV and radio repair business.
Bob was an avid hobbyist, collected war memorabilia and books, liked flying rockets, racing miniature cars and getting great “finds” at garage sales. He was always busy working on the house, fixing and adding on.
Bob is survived by his sister, Barbara Jull of Madison, Wisc.; two nephews, Mark (Heidi) Rolfsmeyer and Matt (Jane) Rolfsmeyer; and niece, Janet (Chuck) Hutchens; and his good friend, Elizabeth Stewart. Rest in peace, Bob.
Bob preferred not to have a service or memorial. He will be buried in Madison.
