    • Tom Hull, well-known attorney, dies at 79

      T h o m a s Marion Hull, a prominent a t t o r n ey, c o m m u n i t y family man and sportsman, died Sunday at his home at Ledford's Mill following an extended illness. He was 79.
      A family memorial service will be held at the Hull residence on Hull Lane at 3 p.m. today. Visitation will follow from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
      Mr. Hull was a member of an activated reserve Air Force unit during the Korean War and served his duty at Smyrna, during which he met and married the former Betty Williamson, who died in 2004. He and Betty, whom he called the love of his life, were the parents of two children, Steve and Leslie.
      Following graduation from Middle Tennessee State University, he went to work for State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. as a claims adjuster. While employed with State Farm, he obtained his law degree from the Nashville YMCA School of Law in 1958 and was admitted to the Tennessee Bar that same year.
      In 1962, he -- along with Thomas A. Wiseman Jr., now a senior U.S. district judge, and Walter M. "Pete" Haynes, former speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives and lieutenant governor -- formed the law firm of Haynes, Wiseman and Hull. Although the firm he helped found has undergone several name changes through the years, it still bears his name, Hull, Ray, Rieder, Ewell & Lane PC.
      Mr. Hull maintained an active law practice for 37 years in Tullahoma until his retirement in 1999. He remained a counsel to the firm until 2005.
      During the course of his career Mr. Hull practiced with and was a mentor to numerous local attorneys, including Joe Hickerson, Joe Majors, Donald J. Ray, B. Campbell Smoot, Charles S. Ramsey Jr., William C. Reider and Gerald L. Ewell Jr.
      He was a past member of the Coffee County and American Bar Associations. Professional offices he held during his distinguished legal career included president of the Coffee County Bar Association; member of the Board of Federal Bar Examiners; and chairman of the board of First National Bank.
      His professional honors included being inducted as a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation and being rated as an "AV preeminent attorney" by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, a distinction he still held at the time of his death.
      During his full life as an avid sportsman, he flew airplanes, drove racecars, rode motorcycles, and competed at a championship level in golf and tennis.
      Survivors include his son, Stephen Murrow Hull; his daughter, Leslie Marion Hull; brother, Longstreet Murrow Hull, and grandchildren, Stephen Clayton Hull, Mary Frances Merrell, and Leslie Alice Hull; and a great-grandchild, Lannie Grace Merrell.
      The family suggests donations be made to the Hospice Compassus or the Coffee County Lannom Memorial Public Library.
