William ‘Wills’ Edward Tull III

William Tull III

NEGAUNEE, MI -William “Wills” Edward Tull III, age 29, of Negaunee, passed away Sunday, March 10, 2019, as the result of an automobile accident.

Wills was born October 22, 1989, in Scottsdale, Arizona, a son of William Edward and Michele Marie (Malvasio) Tull, Jr. Our smiling and kind-hearted Will.

His legacy will be his children; William Edward Tull IV “Billy” 8 years old, and Jeannette Raelyn Tull “Jeney” age 4 months old. He was the center of their world and Billy would like people to know that his dad was a nice person, who liked to play video games with him, especially Minecraft. He liked to play pranks on him and play with Jeney making her giggle and laugh. He was a devoted father and raised Billy as a single parent for many years. He was blessed when Andi came into their lives making the family complete with the recent birth of their daughter Jeannette.

Along with his children and life partner Andrea “Andi” Schaeffer, he is survived by his mother Michele (Doug) Carlson, his father William “Billy” Edward Tull, Jr (Julie), a sister Zebrina Tull, grandparents Gary (Ursula) Malvasio and Karen Travis; several uncles, aunties, cousins, and close friends.

Willy was a wrencher from a young age. He was always taking things apart and you couldn’t walk through the yard without tripping on a piece of something from a motor or bicycle. His mom tells a story of him coming home with a muffler he found on the road when he was just 8 years old and said “C’mon we’re going to build a gocart, I’ve already got the muffler”. He loved motors, metal and grease. His employment as a driller for Idea Drilling suited him well.

Although Will has left this earthly life too soon, it is our hope and prayer that he is at home with God, Papa Bill, Gramma Sheila, and uncle Ted Tull in A Life That Never Ends.
