John H. Cull, Jr.

Loving Son and Brother

John H. Cull, Jr. passed away unexpectedly at his home in Nottingham, N.H. on Sunday February 3rd,.  He was born in Lowell on February 12, 1961 to the late John H. Cull and the late Jean L. (Vayo) Cull.

John attended the Peter W. Reilly and Moody Junior High Schools in Lowell and graduated from Lowell High School in 1979. He went on to attend Boston University, graduating in 1983 Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science. While at Boston University he was a member of their crew team.

Village Properties in Manchester, NH as a Maintenance Technician and most recently at Measured Progress in Dover, NH, as a Courier.

In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, fishing and hunting. John was a

member of Country Pond Fish and Game Club for many years. His annual

hunting trip, with his friend John DeYoung, was an event to which he truly looked forward. 

John also enjoyed riding his motorcycle and over the years took several rides and road trips with his father. He was also a proud member of the N.R.A.    

A member of the Boston University Alumni, John tried to ensure that others had the opportunity to experience the quality of education he received while there as a student.   

John had a strong work ethic – do it right or not at all – and he was always willing to reach out to his friends and neighbors to help them in any way.
