Charles “Chuck” (Sonny) Stull, 83, of Streator passed away peacefully at his earthly home with his family by his side at 11:22pm on Sunday (January 8, 2017).  We are comforted in knowing that he is now home with the Lord.

Visitations will be held from 5-7 PM Friday (January 13, 2017) at the Hagi & Baker Funeral Home in Streator and from 10-11 AM Saturday (January 14, 2017) at the United Methodist Church in Ransom.

Funeral services will be held at 11 AM Saturday at the church.  Full military rites will be held at the church by the Leslie G. Woods American Legion Post 217 and the Veteran of Foreign Wars Post 1492.  Pastor Mary McQuilkin will officiate and conduct graveside rites at 2:30 PM at the Evergreen Cemetery in Morris.

Chuck was born on May 20, 1933 in St. Louis, MO to Russell and Opal (Draper) Stull.  He married Dolores Douglas on November 25, 1956.  She went home to be with the Lord on March 27, 1998.

He is survived by 1 daughter, Deborah White (Robert Stoops), Normal, IL; 1 grandson, Kevin (Jackie) White, Bloomington, IL; 3 great grandsons, Keegan, Jacob, Kyle; 1 sister, Beverly (Joe) Kennedy, Palatine, IL: 1 brother, Steve (Phyllis) Stull, Ottawa, IL; many cousins, nieces, nephews, and special friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife, brother Robert, and sister-in-law Leona.

Chuck attended Kinsman and Seneca grade schools and graduated from Dwight High School.  He then entered the Army Signal Corps and served in Germany during the Korean War.  Following the war he attended the DeVry Institute of Technology where he became a certified electronic technician.  He owned and operated Stull TV & Appliance in Ottawa.  Upon retirement Chuck enjoyed serving as a driver for the St. Mary’s Hospital adult day services.

He was affiliated with the Methodist Church in Grand Ridge and Ransom.  Chuck was a charter member of the Ransom Lions Club, lifetime member of the Ottawa Rescue Squad, and a member of the American Legion Post 33 in Ottawa.

Chuck was a very caring, humble and fun person.  He had a hearty laugh, genuine smile and generous heart.  In his younger years you could find Chuck at a roller skating rink, which is where he met his wife Dolores.  He also enjoyed bowling, traveling, watching his beloved Cubs win the World Series, and spending time with family and friends.

We are blessed that Sonny left us a legacy of faith, strength and joy.  He was a patient, kind, smart man.  We will always remember his words:  “Don’t worry.  Just pray!”

We are grateful to Dr. Parsons and all of the medical professionals who provided excellent care to Chuck.  Memorials can be made to the Ransom United Methodist Church or The American Heart & Lung Foundation.  Online condolences and remembrances may be shared at
